08:22 EDTTWCComcast presents new arguments in Time Warner Cable merger case, NY Post says
Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) told regulators this week that its potential merger with Time Warner Cable (TWC) will not substantially affect its national broadband marketshare under recently changed FCC rules, reports the New York Post, citing sources. The move follows a ruling that establishes a heightened minimum download speed to qualify a service as "broadband," which now means that Time Warner Cable does not technically offer broadband in many markets. An antitrust lawyer working against the merger said, "Thatís grasping at straws." Reference Link

AT&T (T) knew that demand for cable bundles had likely peaked when it bought DirecTV (DTV), but the company believes the decline in traditional cable businesses will be slower than anticipated, allowing it to fund upgrades to its broadband network, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing statements by Chief Strategy Officer John Stankey. "The world is going to be broadband... and that is where we want to be," said Stankey. The Journal notes that Apple (AAPL), Time Warner's (TWC) HBO, and Dish (DISH) have launched or plan to launch web-TV packages and services. Reference Link

09:59 EDTTWCCharter may have interest in Cablevision 'at some point,' says Detwiler
Detwiler Fenton believes there is truth to last week's reports of Charter (CHTR) being in talks to acquire Bright House Networks. In addition, the firm says its checks indicate Charter may have interest in buying Suddenlink Communications and Cablevision (CVC) "at some point" as a part of a lager acquisition strategy. Detwiler adds Charter's potential deal strategy assumes Comcast's (CMCSA) bid for Time Warner (TWC) wins regulatory approval. Should the deal not get approved, Detwiler believes Charter will turn its attention back to Time Warner.
