Comcast buys NBCUniversal... owns half of cable programing.

Last year Comcast Corporation purchased 51% of NBC Universal, today they have purchased the rest of it from GE for $16.7 Billion. Comcast will also own a 31% stake in Hulu to go along with the huge acquisitions under the NBCU umbrella like SyFy, USA, Bravo, and E!. One has to question how this is even legal for a cable company to own major programing networks, and how it could affect their competitors.

Here is a full list of NBCUniversal divisions:

NBC News

Chiller

CNBC

MSNBC

iVillage

Mun2

Cloo

G4 (Esquire)

NBC Sports

Universal Pictures

Universal Parks & Resorts

E!

SyFy

Telemundo

Bravo

DailyCandy

Golf Channel

Sprout

Oxygen

USA

Fandango

The Weather Channel

Focus Features

UPC

Style

So if they own NBC Universal does that mean they can then make the channels exclusive to themselves?

 

If So I have no issue with Time Warner taking this as a major blow or even how this could affect the ratings to shows produced by the WWE.

That is some bullshit right there. One company should not own half the media in the country. Seeing as comcast is a cable provider as well as content provider this screams monopoly to me.

I would assume they could, if not for outstanding contracts for those channels. Time Warner has their own http://ynn.com/ YNN network which is a Time Warner exclusive news channel owned by time warner.

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.

      IFC had a Three Stooges marathon on Thanksgiving. After we ate, we watched that the rest of the day. I haven't laughed that hard for that long in a long time. Good stuff.

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.
