06:40 EDTS, DTV, TWC, T, TMUS, CMCSATelecom deals could offer avenues of options or pitfalls in future, WSJ says
The potentially large deals with AT&T (T) and DirecTV (DTV), Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC), and Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) could offer new solutions where wireless service, video and the Internet are offered in one package, reports the Wall Street Journal. But according to former FCC chief of staff Blair Levin, the future could either offer large companies who compete aggressively one another or the mergers could give the companies more pricing power than ever.

18:33 EDTDTV, TFCC 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

05:52 EDTTWC, CMCSA, DTVRuling in Netflix case a negative for Rovi, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty says court filings released after yesterday's market close indicate Netflix (NFLX) was granted a motion of summary invalidating all five of the remaining Rovi (ROVI) patents that were being contested. Auty expects Rovi to sell off on the news as investors consider what the ruling may do to the company's upcoming contract renewals with Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), DirecTV (DTV) and DISH (DISH). The "big 4" choosing to litigate against Rovi is "certainly a possibility," but the companies have bigger patent infringement exposures than an over-the-top vendor like Netflix, Auty writes in a research note. He keeps a Neutral rating on Rovi.
