The Comcast/Time Warner Cable merger should be blocked by the FCC. This is an unprecedented consolidation of the Internet marketplace that would be detrimental to consumers, competition, and the entire Internet ecosystem.

 

Comcast and Time Warner Cable produce programming as well as provide distribution. After buying Time Warner Cable, Comcast’s ability and incentive to discriminate in favor of its own programming and online services would increase, as well as Comcast’s power to decide how video is distributed online.

 

Approving this merger even with conditions would not be an effective way to regulate the many harms that Comcast could cause with this level of market control and influence in pay TV, programming, advertising, and other markets. Conditions will eventually expire, even while the harms they exist to mitigate persist.

 

The FCC should block this merger completely and continue to encourage competition, not consolidation.
