At least...

Comcast does not have to do that for shows on NBC since they own them. But yet another reason content distributors should never be content owners.

people said that when the merger was first suggested, DOJ and the FTC ignored the people. But not surprised the government is once again allowing complete vertical integration, They only listen to the money.

The funny thing is the government regulators attacked this over 30 years ago in a different industry when they barred movie studios from owning the movie theaters. Many many theaters in the country used to be studio owned, It was the peak of the studio system.(as far as I know that is why some theaters are called for example the Paramount, They were once owned by Paramount Pictures.). And yet we have come full circle except now its the theaters buying the studios.(Cable being the theater now.)
