Cox + Charter I don't see Cox and Charter having trouble going after TWC. If Comcast is eliminated from the fold, all the regulatory issues go out the window. Comcast, as it stands now, would still be bigger than a combined Cox + TWC or a combined Charter + TWC, by a long shot (Cox+TWC=16.7m, Comcast now=21.9m). Also, Cox, Charter, and TWC don't own any meaningful content. I think you could even get away with Cox, Charter, and TWC combining into one company (20.9m) which would only then be approaching Comcast and DirecTV in terms of video subscribers.
Re: Cox + Charter
said by TBBroadband:Time Warner Cable never reached any appreciable size while they were under Time Warner that would have caused any regulatory issues. Comcast's size with Time Warner Cable makes it's vertical integration an issue. It doesn't matter if they're in a separate division within Comcast. Corporate organization has no impact on it.
Regulatory issues again with Comcast wouldn't have any issues with their Cable Unit. They operate differently from the content properties with Comcast. The same as TWC did with TWE.
Re: Cox + Charter Of course it goes through without any problems, these same regulators approved the cable/VZ spectrum deal ! lol
I believe these deals are truly determined by a coin toss.
