First, this is a recommendation from the Chairman for approval of the merger, albeit conditional.
Second, there is this from an LA Times article:
There are many conditions in Genachowski's proposed order. So far I can't on line find a copy of what he circulated to the other FCC members Thursday. So it appears all we can read is news articles about a "leaked" copy.
Specifically, one condition would require Comcast to provide its programming to an online video service if rivals such as Walt Disney Co.'s ABC or News Corp.'s Fox were also feeding content to it.
That could be a bitter pill for Comcast to swallow because it would prefer to control its own programming rather than be forced to help competitors — such as Netflix or Google TV — build their businesses.
