07:27 EDTDISHComcast 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
