Time Warner and Comcast combined represent almost 60% of the cable subscriptions in the United States. If these two cable operators merge, what impact will the deal have on customers who subscribe to their services? Ultimately, Time Warner and Comcast would have the power to dictate what content’s acceptable or unacceptable to show, however, the Federal Communications Commission would likely ensure a diverse range of programming for consumers.
If the deal wins approval from government regulators, the two cable operators would control approximately one-third of the paid TV market. The problem is, the $45 billion investment put into the deal will most likely result in higher fees for consumers.
