16:24 EDTCMCSANetflix says opposes Comcast-Time Warner Cable deal
"If the Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) merger is approved, the combined company’s footprint will pass over 60% of U.S. broadband households, after the proposed divestiture, with most of those homes having Comcast as the only option for truly high-speed broadband. As DSL fades in favor of cable Internet, Comcast could control high-speed broadband to the majority of American homes. Comcast is already dominant enough to be able to capture unprecedented fees from transit providers and services such as Netflix (NFLX). The combined company would possess even more anti-competitive leverage to charge arbitrary interconnection tolls for access to their customers. For this reason Netflix opposes this merger," the company said.
