11:12 EDTTWCFCC stops 'informal clock' for review of AT&T, Comcast proposed deals
Federal Communications Commission disclosed in a notice on its website that a number of commenters filed a motion for an extension of time to file replies in Docket 14-57, which is the review of the application of Comcast (CMCSA) for approval of its proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC). Among other points, the commenters argue that certain third-party programmers “do not want any of the interested parties’ outside counsel or experts to view [their programming contracts],” the FCC noted. "We agree with these commenters that their current inability to review Highly Confidential Information that has been submitted in these dockets significantly hampers their ability to meaningfully comment and participate in these proceedings, in both Docket 14-57 and Docket 14-90. Accordingly, we are suspending the pleading cycles and stopping our 180-day informal time clock in both dockets," the FCC stated. Docket 14-90 refers to AT&T's (T) proposed purchase of DIRECTV (DTV).
