12:21 EDTCBSCable ad upfront volumes may drop 4% or more, WSJ says
Two of the U.S.'s biggest marketers, Procter & Gamble (PG) and General Motors (GM), have pulled back on their TV network advertising commitments in advance of the "upfront" selling season for cable networks, said The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The overall volume of ad dollars committed to cable networks during the upfront, which is still under way, could be down 4% or more from last year, people familiar with the situation said. Notable owners of cable television stations include 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX), Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB), and AMC Networks (AMCX). The report added that cutbacks partly reflect a shift of tv ad budgets to digital media, including online video. Google (GOOG) has a large presence in online video with YouTube and Facebook (FB) is taking steps to grow in the area. Reference Link

07:14 EDTCBSAereo seeks to survive as cable system, WSJ says
Following its Supreme Court loss, Aereo is now arguing that it should be classified as a cable system and receive a compulsory license that would give it legal access to content and allow it to continue operating, reported The Wall Street Journal. Television broadcasters that own the copyrights in many of the programs that Aereo streams, including CBS (CBS), Disney (DIS), 21st Century Fox (FOXA), and Comcast (CMCSA), successfully sued the service for copyright infringement. In addition to Comcast, publicly-traded cable companies include Time Warner Cable (TWC), Cablevision (CVC), and Charter (CHTR). Reference Link
