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

12:21 EDTDISCA, 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
