US Justice Department to review Comcast's deal with NBCU - 09-January-2010, 13:50

The US Department of Justice will handle the review of Comcast Corporation's venture with GE to take control of NBC Universal.

Announced earlier in December, the agreement will see Comcast own 51 per cent of the new company that will include its own cable networks such as E! and Style! as well as NBC Universal.

While the Justice Department is expected to give a go ahead to the merger, there are likely to be conditions attached. The Justice Department is likely to impose conditions that would prevent Comcast from denying rival platforms access to the NBCU channels, and that would stop the cable operator from shutting out smaller independent services.

Given Comcast's dominance as a pay-TV platform, watchdogs are concerned about the deal's effects on competition in the market.
