While it might be "funny money" floating around within the mother ship, if the NBC entity is considered a separate corporation with its own board, CFO and financials, I think they'll have to charge the Comcast cable LOB the same price as other carriers. In the wholesaling business, the FTC gets upset when the same product isn't offered to all at the same price. Granted, there can be contracts, volume discounts/kickbacks and other ways to game the system but in general, that kind of tactic is sniffed out by those paying higher prices and they complain loudly.
thats where lobbying comes in heres a few mill congressmen now hush hush and let us keep pillaging those poor consumers
