10:36 EDTS, VZ, CMCSA, T, TMUS, DTV, DISHDISH seen as target of Verizon, bidder for T-Mobile after AT&T deal
After AT&T (T) agreed to buy satellite broadcaster DirecTV (DTV), Citigroup wrote that rival DISH Network (DISH) could pursue a number of strategies, including selling itself to Verizon (VZ). Meanwhile, research firm Oppenheimer predicted that DISH would probably look to buy T-Mobile (TMUS). WHAT'S NEW: In the wake of AT&T's acquisition of DirecTV, DISH could sell its spectrum or the entire company to Verizon, Citi analyst Michael Rollins wrote in a note to investors earlier today DISH's downlink spectrum would greatly benefit Verizon, as the telecom giant has significantly less of the spectrum per subscriber than its three national competitors, according to the analyst. Verizon could make DISH's video business a national over the top video provider, added Rollins. Alternatively, DISH could make a competing bid for DirecTV, could become a wireless provider by creating a national network, or buy T-Mobile, the analyst believes. He kept a Hold rating on DISH. Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan predicted in his own note to investors that DISH is likely to try to buy T-Mobile, but noted that Sprint (S) and Comcast (CMCSA) also remain interested in acquiring the number four wireless provider in the U.S. DISH could also look to buy Sprint, according to Horan, who does not believe that Verizon will acquire DISH. He kept an Outperform rating on T-Mobile. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On May 16, The Wall Street Journal reported that the FCC's decision to effectively raise the amount of spectrum a carrier can own in a market could make DISH a more attractive takeover target for Verizon. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, DISH fell 3% to $58.17, AT&T slid 1.8% to $36.07, DirecTV fell 2.2% to $84.20, T-Mobile climbed 1.2% to $33.50 and Verizon was up fractionally to $49.22.

Verizon Telematics confirmed the commercial availability of hum, an aftermarket vehicle technology and subscription service that enables drivers on the road to make their car smarter through a simple solution regardless of their wireless service provider.

05:17 EDTDISHDISH says Sinclair Broadcast chooses to initiate channel blackout
Despite reaching an agreement on rates and all other terms for the carriage of the Sinclair local stations, DISH (DISH) said that this afternoon Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI) chose to begin the largest local channel blackout in the history of television, blocking DISH customers' access to 129 local channels in 79 markets across 36 states and the District of Columbia, and intentionally harming and exploiting millions of innocent consumers to gain negotiating leverage for carriage of an unrelated cable channel that it hopes to acquire but does not own today. Warren Schlichting, DISH senior vice president of programming, said, "Sinclair rejected our extension offer and has chosen to use innocent consumers as pawns to gain leverage for the economic benefit of Sinclair, while causing substantial harm and disruption to the lives of consumers." DISH and Sinclair had been making steady progress in their recent negotiations, and DISH was hopeful that they would come to a mutual agreement to renew carriage of the Sinclair local stations. In that spirit, DISH offered another short-term contract extension to Sinclair that would include a retroactive "true-up" when new rates were agreed upon, and would preserve the ability of DISH customers to access the Sinclair local stations while our negotiations continued. The "true-up" would ensure that Sinclair was made whole at the new rates for the period of any contract extension. Rather than accept DISH's good faith offer, Sinclair Broadcast Group chose to begin the largest local channel blackout in the history of television, blocking DISH customers' access to 129 local channels in 79 markets, and intentionally harming and exploiting millions of innocent consumers to gain negotiating leverage for carriage of an unrelated cable channel that it hopes to acquire but does not own today.

19:13 EDTVZ, TBT executive says Verizon, AT&T abusing landline duopoly, FT reports
In a Financial Times interview published Sunday, BT Group's (BT) Americas president Bas Burger said Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) are abusing their control over telephone and broadband lines to charge inappropriate access fees to companies like BT. "For a western world country it is the worst I've seen... There is not sufficient regulation to create competition: almost all access is being provided by two companies and they have divided the country among themselves," remarked Burger, adding that the two companies are also not required to fix network problems within any specific timeframe.
