Between Comcast's (CMCSA) Time Warner Cable (TWC) takeover and AT&T (T) now purchasing DirecTV (DTV), there’s over $130B worth of agreements that are in dire need of regulatory approval, which is the largest amount of pay-TV assets sitting in front of regulators at one instance, reported Bloomberg. The number of deals needing approval may increase as Dish (DISH) looks for a merger partner and Sprint's (S) parent Softbank (SFTBF) continues to strive for T-Mobile (TMUS) U.S. Reference Link

In a press release earlier T-Mobile said, "The company kicked things off in a big way by amping up Un-carrier 2.0, its groundbreaking JUMP! program, and introducing the industry’s lowest monthly cost to get an iPhone 6 when you trade-in your smartphone. With T-Mobile’s new JUMP! On Demand, one low monthly phone payment covers the cost of a new smartphone and gives you the freedom to swap it for a new one absolutely anytime you like … at no extra cost. Which means you don’t pay a penny to walk out the door with your new smartphone today–not even sales tax, with qualifying credit. No fees to upgrade whenever you want, no waiting and no worries about paying off your old phone when you upgrade." “While the carriers are breaking every promise they’ve ever made with their knock-off upgrade programs, we’re racing full speed ahead, making one of our most popular moves even better,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “JUMP! On Demand is the best way to get a new smartphone whenever you want. Zero out the door. Zero at upgrade. Zero fees. Zero wait. Zero BS.” Shares of T-Mobile are up 1.52% to $39.63 in afternoon trading.

08:25 EDTCMCSANetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.
