06:05 EDTTWC, CMCSA, DIS, VZ, CVCCable companies aim for multiple service customers over single play, WSJ reports
Comcast (CMCSA) says its pricing strategy makes it more valuable for the cable operator to pursue customers who will take multiple services than "single play" customers, reports the Wall Street Journal. The debate in the TV industry has been whether the rising cost of cable TV and growing online video options are prompting people to cut the cord of pay TV. A number of pay-TV executives say that cord-cutting is still a small trend that has largely stemmed from weak economic conditions. But one little-discussed factor is cable operators' pricing policies, which can prompt people to keep TV even if they don't want it.Reference Link

09:59 EDTCMCSA, CVC, TWCCharter 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.

13:59 EDTVZT-Mobile announces 'Un-contract,' 'Carrier Freedom' initiatives
Today, during an event held to announce Un-carrier 9.0 − Un-carrier for Business − T-Mobile (TMUS) unveiled two new major Un-carrier initiatives for consumers. First, with T-Mobile’s new "Un-contract," customers will now have more certainty in their wireless pricing than ever before. Consumers and businesses with the Simple Choice rate plan will find that rates won’t go up as long as they’re a T-Mobile customer and keep their plan − and even customers with unlimited 4G LTE will lock in their rates for a minimum of two years. The Un-carrier also launched "Carrier Freedom," a new move where T-Mobile will now cover all outstanding phone and tablet payments up to $650 per line when customers from AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S) switch to T-Mobile.
