06:28 EDTLVLT, CMCSA, AKAM, NFLX, CCOI, TNetflix CEO says net neutrality 'must be defended and strengthened'
Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings said in a blog post, "To ensure the Internet remains humanity's most important platform for progress, net neutrality must be defended and strengthened." He added, "The essence of net neutrality is that ISPs such as AT&T and Comcast don't restrict, influence or otherwise meddle with the choices consumers make. The traditional form of net neutrality which was recently overturned by a Verizon lawsuit is important, but insufficient...Without strong net neutrality, big ISPs can demand potentially escalating fees for the interconnection required to deliver high quality service."

05:59 EDTCMCSAEU sends Statement of Objections to Sky, U.S. film studios
The European Commission has sent a Statement of Objections to Sky UK (SKYAY) and six major U.S. film studios: Disney (DIS), NBCUniversal (CMCSA), Paramount Pictures (VIA), Sony (SNE), Twentieth Century Fox (FOXA) and Warner Bros (TWX). The Commission takes the preliminary view that each of the six studios and Sky UK have bilaterally agreed to put in place contractual restrictions that prevent Sky UK from allowing EU consumers located elsewhere to access, via satellite or online, pay-TV services available in the UK and Ireland. Without these restrictions, Sky UK would be free to decide on commercial grounds whether to sell its pay-TV services to such consumers requesting access to its services, taking into account the regulatory framework including, as regards online pay-TV services, the relevant national copyright laws. If the Commission's preliminary position were to be confirmed, each of the companies would have breached EU competition rules prohibiting anti-competitive agreements. The sending of a Statement of Objections does not prejudge the outcome of the investigation. These antitrust investigations focus on contractual restrictions on passive sales outside the licensed territory in agreements between studios and broadcasters.

18:33 EDTTFCC chairman proposes to approve AT&T-DirecTV deal with conditions
In light of news reports concerning the proposed AT&T (T) and DirecTV (DTV) transaction, FCC chairman Tom Wheeler issued the following statement: "An order recommending that the AT&T-DirecTV transaction be approved with conditions has circulated to the commissioners... If the conditions are approved by my colleagues, 12.5M customer locations will have access to a competitive high-speed fiber connection. This additional build-out is about 10 times the size of AT&Tís current fiber-to-the-premise deployment... and more than triples the number of metropolitan areas AT&T has announced plans to serve. In addition, the conditions will build on the 'Open Internet Order' already in effect... First, in order to prevent discrimination against online video competition, AT&T will not be permitted to exclude affiliated video services and content from data caps on its fixed broadband connections. Second, in order to bring greater transparency to interconnection practices, the company will be required to submit all completed interconnection agreements to the Commission, along with regular reports on network performance... We will require an independent officer to help ensure compliance with these and other proposed conditions." Reference Link
