Re: TWC produces the content, so..

So you think Vertical integration is a good thing for the customer?

The customer is all that matters remember that is the purpose of a business.

And breaking content creation away from distro would increase competition and better serve the customer.

Would you agree if the FTC let Walmart buy General Mills and then make all General Mills cereals exclusive to walmart?

I never for a second believed that vertical integration is a bad thing. If a business wants to expand what they offer and/or sell, that is their decision. If Comcast wants to own a sports venue, the teams that play in that venue and the channel those teams are broadcast on, that is certainly their right, and more power to them.

Besides I can’t really say I care about the consumer aspect, I’m for big business.

Incorrect. The purpose of a business is to maximize profit.

No, having another company go after the first company, and try to create a better product or service than Company 1, would be best for the consumer.

Sure, why not?
