Comcast, NBC Universal deal gets FCC approval

More than one year after the deal was first announced:

The Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Justice on Tuesday approved — with several conditions — a merger of the country’s largest cable operator, Comcast, and broadcasting company NBC Universal. The FCC voted 4-1 in favor of the deal.

Comcast pledged major commitments in protecting online video competition, bolstering local news coverage and improving digital divide web-access to earn approval.
