Comcast Says Stations in TWC Markets Will ‘Have Greater Protections’

comcast time warnerWith Comcast preparing to acquire Time Warner Cable for $45.2 billion, the company has released several documents related to the merger. In one memo, called “Day One Undertakings,” Comcast EVP David Cohen details the effects for local stations in Time Warner markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Cleveland:

Broadcast stations in the acquired markets will have greater protections in their retransmission consent negotiations with the acquired systems. Among other things,  NBC affiliate market integrity in these markets would be protected, and Comcast’s negotiations with broadcast stations would be without influence by NBCUniversal’s retransmission consent or affiliate negotiations.

TVNewser has the full memo.
