07:27 EDTDISH, CMCSAComcast tells FCC it should not be required to offer NBC to rivals, NY Post says
Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) has told the FCC it does not believe it should be required to offer NBC content to its rivals after January 2018, reports the New York Post, citing sources. The company believes that the advent of new web TV offerings -- including Dish's (DISH) Sling TV, which launched without any NBC content -- mean that NBC is no longer needed for a service to find traction. The FCC believes that in light of Comcast's potential merger with Time Warner Cable (TWC), allowing it to withhold NBC content may prove too anticompetitive, said one source. Separately, the source said the merger review is "in the bottom of the sixth inning." Reference Link

08:22 EDTCMCSAComcast 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

09:59 EDTCMCSACharter 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.
