Comcast Tells FCC Why Acquiring NBCU Is in the Public Interest

Jan 29, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Comcast Corp. formally put its 145-page application to take control of NBC Universal before the FCC, the Los Angeles Times reports.

In broad strokes, the company said the merger wouldn’t stifle competition, or shut out rival programmers, and would be in the public interest, noting that it will be able to ramp up its video-on-demand movie business, as consumers want.

  1. Personally, I hate Comcast and I believe they will ruin what is left of NBC. For years, there was a website http://www.comcastmustdie.com and the horror stories there were unbelieveable. I even had to post a couple of headaches I had with Comcast there myself. As we have seen in other large corporate mergers, (Sirius & XM for example) the regulators are told what they want to hear that will allow the merger, and once the merger is done, they pretty much ignore the promises they made. I think this will be the case with Comcast and NBC.
