ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the case of Comcast and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which is filed before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The case stems when the FCC decided to prevent any cable company from serving more than 30 percent of the nation's total pay television subscribers. Comcast believes that the 30 percent limit is an abuse of discretion. The company also claims that the limit prevents them from acquiring Time Warner Cable's 13.3 million subscribers.
