TV REALLY Everywhere: Sen. Al Franken Wants NBCU, Comcast TV Shows on the Internet, Available to Anyone

Feb 23, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) wants Comcast and NBC Universal to promise to put all the TV shows of a combined company online, the Los Angeles Times reports.

In written questions to the two companies, which are seeking regulatory approval for Comcast’s proposed takeover of NBCU, Franken also asked for assurances that all those online shows would be available to anyone, and not just Comcast Internet subscribers, the paper reports.

Franken, a tough critic of the proposed deal, didn’t ask that the shows be made available for free.
