Comcast Says Combined Company Wouldn’t Throttle Netflix or Any Other Online Video Provider – Tech Trader Daily –

This week’s Barron’s magazine includes a column I wrote about the Comcast (CMCSA) – Time Warner Cable (TWC) proposed merger. In response to the article, Comcast’s David Cohen, head of the firm’s regulatory affairs, wrote to amplify some remarks he made about over-the-top video services, and also to rebut a claim made by Reed Hundt.

Cohen emphasized that he considers over-the-top to be something more comparable to traditional multi-channel video provider services, including cable and direct broadcast satellite. Comcast has never been able to find a business model that works for such services.”

If Charter can install its own supporters on the board, it would effectively force TWC to begin discussions about a potential buyout — a deal that it’s rebuked so far.”
