FCC seeks web concessions for NBC / Comcast approval

April 28, 2010

US reports say the FCC may use their veto power over Comcast's planned purchase of NBC Universal to demand concessions that help Web competitors.

The Federal Communications Commission extended its review of the deal in part to assess the effect on online video services. The FCC may bar Comcast, the largest US cable service, from interfering with Web video startups such as Roku and Boxee or from denying them NBC shows or films.
