Charter Communications announced plans to purchase Time Warner Cable, as well as proceed with its acquisition of Bright House Networks. The agreements create a cable company, “New Charter,” that will serve 23.9 million customers in 41 states. Subject to regulatory approval, the deal will lead to “real benefits and great long-term value for the customers, shareholders and employees of all three companies, ” said Charter president and CEO Tom Rutledge. Offered Brian Roberts, chairman and CEO of Comcast, whose own pact with TWC ended when federal regulators indicated they would not approve the transaction, “This deal makes all the sense in the world. I would like to congratulate all the parties.”

The Charter/TWC announcement was “a not-surprising reaction to the rejection of the Comcast-TWC deal,” Howard Homonoff, president, Homonoff Media Group (whose clients have included Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, FOX Networks and 4A’s), tells Cynopsis.“What will be most interesting are the next shoes to drop, because they are definitely coming; they may include Cablevision, MediaCom, CableOne, Atlantic Broadband (now owned by Cogeco), as well as moves for more broadcaster consolidation and counters from Dish.”

That’s because consolidation right now is crucial, according to Thomas J. Connolly, global media & entertainment leader, transaction advisory services at EY. “The U.S. is not even in the top ten of countries globally when it comes to average bandwith speed,” Connolly tells Cynopsis. “Scale is critical to align investment with return, and the improved scale of a broadband providers with a larger national footprint is the right move at the right time.”


Fox News has friends in surprising places in its copyright dispute with media monitoring company TVEyes, which lets its subscribers download and share clips of news shows. Fox News rivals CNN, NBCUniversal and CBS Studios were among the companies asking permission to file a “friend of the court” brief supporting Fox News’ motion for summary judgment motion against TV Eyes. A judge sided with TVEyes in September, saying that by indexing news articles, it “provides a service that no content provider provides.”
