15:55 EDTT, CMCSANew FCC proposal to let ISPs charge for special access, WSJ says
The Federal Communications Commission plans to propose new "net neutrality" rules on Thursday that would block Internet service providers from discriminating against specific websites, but would allow providers to charge content companies for preferential treatment of their traffic, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing a person familiar with the proposal. Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings had been outspoken in the past in his opposition of the FCC's previous net neutrality rules. Broadband ISPs include Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Cablevision (CVC), Verizon (VZ), and AT&T (T). Reference Link

06:35 EDTCMCSACharter close to adding 4M subscribers in deal with Comcast, WSJ reports
Charter (CHTR) and Comcast (CHTR) are close to a deal where Charter would acquire nearly 4M extra subscribers, reports the Wall Street Journal. The two companies are in advanced talks that would be contingent on Comcast's proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC), where Comcast would divest subscribers so its share of the pay-TV market would not rise above 30%. According to people familiar with the situation, Charter would likely acquire 1M-1.5M through a straight out sale and it would take an equity stake in a Comcast spinoff holding a few more million subscribers.

Prior view was growth of 2%-3%. FY14 consensus $132.24B.
16:08 EDTTAT&T added more than 1M subs in Q1
AT&T added more than 1M subscribers in the first quarter, with year-over-year improvements in every category. Total wireless subscribers increased by 1,062,000 in the quarter, led by 625,000 postpaid net adds and 693,000 connected device net adds. This was the strongest first-quarter postpaid growth in five years. These gains were offset somewhat by a net loss of 50,000 prepaid subscribers, due to declines in session-based tablets, and a net loss of 206,000 reseller subscribers, primarily due to losses in low-revenue 2G subscriber accounts. Prepaid net adds include first-quarter results from Leap Wireless only after AT&T acquired the company on March 13. Postpaid net adds include 311,000 smartphones. Total branded smartphone net adds (both postpaid and prepaid) were 566,000. Total branded tablet net adds were 313,000.

Sales of Apple's (AAPL) iPhones may be further pressured as carriers make faster progress in transitioning customers away from subsidies, the Wall Street Journal reports. U.S. wireless carriers like T-Mobile US (TMUS) and AT&T (T) have been having more success than expected in moving customers to non-subsidy plans, a transition that could harm sales of expensive handsets such as the iPhone.

16:24 EDTCMCSANetflix says opposes Comcast-Time Warner Cable deal
"If the Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) merger is approved, the combined companyís footprint will pass over 60% of U.S. broadband households, after the proposed divestiture, with most of those homes having Comcast as the only option for truly high-speed broadband. As DSL fades in favor of cable Internet, Comcast could control high-speed broadband to the majority of American homes. Comcast is already dominant enough to be able to capture unprecedented fees from transit providers and services such as Netflix (NFLX). The combined company would possess even more anti-competitive leverage to charge arbitrary interconnection tolls for access to their customers. For this reason Netflix opposes this merger," the company said.

13:12 EDTTEarnings Preview: AT&T sentiment mixed ahead of Q1 report
AT&T (T) is expected to report Q1 earnings after the market close on Tuesday, April 22, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. AT&T is a global telecommunications company offering wireless and long distance services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 70c on revenue of $32.41B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-74c on revenue of $31.96B-$33.24B. LAST QUARTER: AT&T reported Q4 adjusted EPS of 53c against estimates for 50c, on revenue of $33.2B against estimates for $33.06B. Q4 postpaid churn was reported at 1.11%. AT&T reported the following in Q4: more than 500,000 branded smartphone net adds, including postpaid and prepaid; wireless operating income $1.4B; total postpaid ARPU up 2.1%; net increase in total wireless subscribers 809,000; connected device adds 398,000. On its Q4 earnings report, the company forecast FY14 adjusted EPS growth in the mid-single digits compared to a consensus at the time of $2.67. It expected FY14 revenue growth of 2%-3%, compared to the then consensus of $131.12B. On March 31, the board of AT&T authorized the repurchase of up to 300M shares, representing approximately 6% of AT&T common shares outstanding, with no expiration date. Due to the large share buyback program, The New York times noted that AT&T would be less likely to make a bid for Vodafone (VOD), something that had been speculated throughout the quarter. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been mixed in the weeks leading up to AT&T's Q1 earnings report. On February 11, Drexel Hamilton initiated AT&T with a Buy rating and price target of $40. On March 25, HSBC downgraded AT&T to Neutral from Overweight based on expectations for increased industry price competition and a peak margin expansion. The firm lowered its price target on the shares to $35 from $39. PRICE ACTION: AT&Tís shares are up approximately 6% since the company's Q4 report, but are down about 6% from year ago levels. In early afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's Q1 report, AT&Tís shares are trading near the flat line.

Volvo plans to enable cars with AT&T on-board for sale this summer. As a telematics leader, AT&T already provides a variety of vehicle solutions to automobile manufacturers around the world. Volvo's solution incorporates AT&T's Single SIM platform to provide coverage in the U.S. and Canada.
