News: With Comcast-Time-Warner merger looming, AT&T will acquire DirectTV

Comcast-Time-Warner

Another ISP and TV provider merge. I hate to keep sounding like a doomsayer, and keep beating the same point to death but this is really bad news for people that don’t want to cut the cord because it doesn’t give them what they want. What is to keep AT&T from jacking up the price of your internet bill to the point where cord cutting isn’t a viable option and then encourage you to sign up for their television service. I sincerely hope the Aereo Supreme Court case goes the right way because I am beginning to wonder how long cord cutting will be a viable option.
