Have Time Warner Cable?Submitted by moneymikeGBW on Fri, 03/07/2014 - 20:20
In regards to the merger with Comcast....
On February 13, 2014, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Time Warner Cable Inc. distributed the following email to employees:
"....I know you’ll have a lot of questions, so I've set up a special email box. firstname.lastname@example.org , and we’ll use Channel You to answer as many as we can, as quickly as we can."
Send those e-mails friends!
Update: Downloaded all the papers filed to the SEC by TWC.
Brian L. Roberts, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer:
"On the regulatory front, we believe that this transaction is approvable. It is pro-consumer, pro-competitive, and strongly in the public interest, and that’s because the deal will benefit millions of customers who accelerated deployment of advanced technology and the
development of new and innovative products making our businesses more competitive.
So by becoming a monopoly they can stop different companies from becoming monopolies in other industries? That almost makes sense, but, lets let Brian finish...
Significantly, it will not reduce competition in any relevant market because our companies do not overlap or compete with each other. In fact, we do not operate in any of the same ZIP Codes. And there’s no impact on the competitiveness of other MVPDs, including DirecTV, Dish, Verizon, AT&T, because they will still be competing with the same number of competitors in each market in which they operate."
The fact that they will be in one out of three American homes with a television does not discourage competition hey? What about the network that wont get picked up by any provider because GIANT Comcast decides not to carry them? I see so many problems with this.
O yeah if anyone is interested you can find all the documents filed by TWC to the SEC at http://www.ir.timewarnercable.com
