Comcast To Buy Time Warner Cable In $44.2 Billion All-Stock Deal

Lost Penguin Why does it matter who buys who? (303 comments)

It is not like there actually is competition.

The US cable industry reminds me of the old joke about Soviet Russia television; Channel one has the official party line, while channel two has the KGB announcer telling you to turn back to channel one. The cable companies all treat customers like domesticated farm animals, you are either inside of one farmers fence or another's, you can only move from one pasture to another pasture with much paper work and time off from work, yet still you will eat the same grass.
