Netflix And Dish Ask FCC To Block Comcast-TWC Merger

Consumerist has put together a list of companies that are opposed to the Comcast-TWC merger. Among the companies trying to block the deal are Netflix, the Free Press, Dish Network and others.

The merger will give Comcast control over such a huge percentage of residential internet that we won’t be able to grow or innovate anymore. Dish, as a satellite TV company, does compete directly with Comcast for video subscribers. And Dish also has to pay fees to Comcast for every single NBCU network every single Dish subscriber gets.
