I would only like to see this happen IF the consumer benefits by getting more channels and better technology for less money.
Sorry, that is not the big business way. IT is always less channels in less resolution for more money and yesterday's cutting edge technology.

What will happen within the first year of any such merger you will see up to 1/2 of the administrative support staff get laid off. They only need 1 IT department, only 1 Payroll & Accounting dept, etc. This is what the merger is about, laying people off and reducing operating costs.
