FCC will be a Burden in a likely Merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable

Comcast Corporation’s (NASDAQ:CMCSA) potential acquisition of Time Warner Cable Inc (NYSE:TWC) would face strong regulatory hurdles from Washington. A source within the FCC as told the Wall Street Journal that a merger between the companies would be subject to an enormous of scrutiny before approval. Yesterday, it was reported that Time Warner Cable is willing to accept a takeover bid in the range of $150 to $160 a share. However, it is not clear yet that Comcast is willing to undergo the regulatory scrutiny to acquire Time Warner Cable. Current reports indicate that Comcast is in the exploratory stages. The FCC news will likely dampen expectations on both sides.
