Charter Merger With Time Warner Cable Delayed at FCC

  • Regulators take two-week pause to review company filings
  • Distribution of Time Warner Cable's sports networks at issue

Regulators pushed back by two weeks their informal deadline to complete a review of Charter Communications Inc.’s purchase of Time Warner Cable Inc.

U.S. officials need more time to examine recent filings on the deal’s potential impact to the distribution of Time Warner Cable’s regional sports networks and Charter’s residential pricing and packaging methods, among other things, the Federal Communications Commission said in a letter Monday to the companies posted on its website.
