    On Monday, net neutrality as FCC policy ended. On Tuesday AT&T won the right to acquire Time Warner. These represent important changes on delivery of TV programming through the internet.

    And from today's news Comcast Bids $65B For 21st Century Fox In Largest Cash Deal Of All Time, Shares Jump we learn:

    ...Comcast's most recent offer represents a premium of approximately 19% to the value of Disney’s offer.

    Comcast's move comes a day after a federal judge approved a merger between AT&T and Time Warner. "In light of yesterday’s decision in the AT&T/Time Warner case, the limited time prior to your shareholders’ meeting, and our strong continued interest, we are pleased to present a new, all-cash proposal that fully addresses the Board’s stated concerns with our prior proposal," [Comcasts CEO & Chairman Brian] Roberts said.​

    None of this, of course, will increase your costs for TV during the next decade. [​IMG]

    Wait till disney comes back and ups it some more. They should because that property will be worth a lot more on their hands than they are even paying for it...

    Of course that’s the business side. For us consumers well i see good and bad... food in the content side if Disney gets them bad every other way... and worse if Comcast gets them in every way...
