  • Virginia Beach, Comcast still negotiating with team reported to be Kings [SB Nation]
  • Sports fans can pursue antitrust case over programs [Chicago Tribune] “U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin in Manhattan said the subscribers could pursue claims that the packaging has reduced competition, raised prices, and kept them from watching their favorite teams located outside their home markets. The defendants include Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, several teams in both sports, various regional sports networks, Comcast Corp, DirecTV and Madison Square Garden Co.”
  • NBCU gets some love from Wall Street [Variety] “In a comprehensive report on Comcast on Thursday, [Bernstein Research’s Todd] Juenger predicted $1.5 billion in annual upside for NBCU cash flow by 2016 with $800 million from retransmission and reverse compensation. If each of the four major broadcast nets shared revenue equally, he said, NBC’s would be $450 million more than it is today.”
