FCC Stops Review of Comcast-TWC Merger For Now

The Federal Communications Commission has decided to pause the timeline on its review of the Comcast-TWC merger because they recently found 7,000 pages that was previously unaccounted for.

The FCC expects the review to take about three weeks, ending around Jan. 12. This isn’t the first delay either, as they just recently restarted the review after they heard objections from programmers that didn’t want their deals reviewed.

Apparently, these documents were withheld improperly under an “attorney-client privilege” that shouldn’t have existed.

Sena Fitzmaurice, a spokeswoman for Comcast, said the review of the merger is still on track to be concluded early in 2015.
