Consumers shouldn't gloat over Comcast capitulation in Time Warner deal
Forbes, in an article by Antoinie Gara, says this morning that consumers should not gloat over the decision by Comcast to abandon its takeover of Time Warner, link here, apparently over fear of regulatory pressures given FCC signals.
There are many basic news stories about the Comcast decision, like here. Vox has a straightforward discussion of what was wrong with the deal here.
At the same time, I personally see more Facebook posts from friends who want to pick and choose their programs without bundling, in many cases with Internet TV only. I personally need to have access to everything right now, all the time, given my own “business model”.
