We’ve told you about DISH, Public Knowledge, Entravision and others who don’t like the Charter-Time Warner Cable-Bright House deals and have filed petitions at the FCC to deny it. Then there are those like ACA, AT&T, UP and Aspire who have stopped short of opposing the merger, but have raised concerns. But who is standing up and supporting the deal?

RFD-TV, for one. The rural TV network is a nice backer to have considering that founder Patrick Gottsch told Congress during Comcast-Time Warner Cable hearings last year that the indie net lost almost 400K households after Comcast pulled its distribution in Colorado and New Mexico. Execs from RFD-TV are actually in DC this week discussing the positive relationship the programmer has had with Charter and its support of the pending transactions. It even took out a full-page ad in Wednesday’s Washington Post (see a glimpse of the ad above).

“This is a totally different situation compared to the previous takeover attempt as roles are reversed with the smaller rural cable company merging with the larger urban clustered entities,” Gottsch said in a statement.

Other companies that are giving the deals thumbs up include Arris and Herring Networks.
