06:45 EDTSNI, DISCA, CMCSA, TWCComcast deal could spur wave of consolidation, NY Times says
Comcast's (CMCSA) proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC) could spur "a frenzy" of M&A deals as cable networks, and cable operators could look to combine, The New York Times reported Friday night. Last month Discovery (DISCA) was considering buying Scripps Networks (SNI), but decided not to pull the trigger, partly because Discovery felt it was already large enough to deal with Comcast, the newspaper stated, citing unnamed sources. But if Comcast gets much larger, cable networks may need to consolidate, the newspaper quoted "a person with knowledge of Discovery’s thinking" as saying. Reference Link
