ACA Statement On Sen. Kohl’s Letter About The Comcast-NBCU Merger

PITTSBURGH, May 26, 2010 - "ACA believes that the Comcast-NBCU merger would harm competition and consumers without strong and enforceable conditions.  ACA commends Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) for suggesting that the Federal Communications Commission impose conditions on the transaction that would ensure that all pay-TV providers have access to Comcast-NBCU programming on reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms.  As the largest pay-TV operator in the country, Comcast-NBCU must not be able to charge itself one price and all other smaller operators a higher price.  This is harmful to competition and consumers.  The structure of the merger is an issue of great concern that ACA members have addressed with Congress, the FCC and the Department of Justice, and ACA will continue to do so."
