comcast to buy time warner cable for $45 billion

What do you guys think of this news that Comcast is buying time warner cable. Apparently Comcast is going to divest 3 million subscribers to appease regulators. Is this good or bad news for Comcast/time warner?
I would imagine they would spin off nbc universal as a spate entity and move Comcast regional networks into a division of nbc universal to appease regulators who might frown upon have one MAJOR cable provider.

Yes I know this is on the front page but wanted everyone here's opinion.

Another thing that may come out of this is directv and dish network merging. They will claim they have to merge to compete with Comcast warner cable.
