Economic Issues Raised In The Comcast - Time Warner Cable Merger
12 PM EST
The proposed $45 billion merger of Comcast and Time Warner (“TWC”) would have made Comcast both the largest cable company and the largest provider of wireline broadband service in the United States. Although Comcast and TWC did not compete directly in any geographic market, their proposed merger raised contentious economic issues. In this program, economists for the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission and for the merging and opposing parties will discuss the economic issues raised during the merger review and the possible implications of those issues for other mergers.
