My Take - Cable - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

My Take - Cable

Are you worried cable companies are getting too big to care for their customers?  Well last weeks announcement by Comcast and their agreement to buy Time Warner should have the attention of many of their subscribers.  The 45 billion dollar  acquisition would make Comcast the biggest video and internet  provider in the country, with dominance  in 19 of the country's  top 20 TV Markets.  Of course Comcast says it will be good for consumers  but they haven't really said how it will be good for consumers.  When we see more market power in the hands of a single company, we  traditionally see higher prices and less than stellar service.  This new deal will probably face scrutiny from the FCC and lawmakers.  I guess customers will have to stay tuned to see what this deal could mean to them.  On the plus side local TV stations like WAFF 48 continue to be free to viewers  over the air.

I'm  Vanessa Oubre that's "My Take" What's yours?
