FCC Stops Informal Review Clocks for Comcast, AT&T Mergers

Updated on

The Federal Communications Commission paused its reviews of Comcast Corp.’s bid for Time Warner Cable Inc. and AT&T Inc.’s proposed purchase of DirecTV.

The FCC is awaiting a court ruling on whether CBS Corp. and other media companies need to divulge programming contracts for the reviews, the agency said in a notice posted on its website. It said it was pausing the 180-day clocks that set informal deadlines for its rulings.
