16:19 EDTDISHFCC proposes rules that may limit joint bidding in spectrum auctions
Roger Sherman, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau Chief, stated in a blog post that FCC Chairman Wheeler circulated a proposal to open new opportunities for small and growing businesses in the mobile marketplace with the purpose of providing "innovative, smaller companies the opportunity to build wireless businesses that can spur additional investment and bring more choices to consumers." The Notice of Proposed Rule Making being circulated proposes to update FCC rules in a way that "recognizes – and confronts – the challenges new entrants face in entering the wireless industry," Sherman said, adding "Perhaps most importantly, the NPRM recognizes the challenge of entering into a marketplace in which more than 95% of existing customers are served by the top four providers." Sherman wrote: "The proposal addresses another important issue – also linked to the trend towards consolidation in the wireless industry. We must make sure that the biggest providers are not able to limit broad participation in the spectrum auction. As promised in the Mobile Spectrum Holdings Report and Order, we now seek comment on whether and how we should restrict the ability of wireless companies to combine their bids during an auction." Companies that may be impacted by FCC efforts to limit joint bidding on spectrum include Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), DirecTV (DTV) and DISH (DISH). Reference Link

12:21 EDTDIS, CMCSACable 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
