Re: American Cable Association ("ACA") Ex Parte: In the Matter of Applications of Comcast Corporation, General Electric Company and NBC Universal, Inc. for Consent to Assign Licenses or Transfer Control of Licenses, MB Docket No. 10-56.
Dear Ms. Dortch:
ACA has documented its concerns about the horizontal and vertical competitive harms of the proposed combination of assets associated with the Comcast-NBCU transaction, the lack of adequate safeguards to protect consumers and competition, and the conditions ACA believes necessary to mitigate these harms in Comments filed June 21, 2010, Response to Comments filed July 21, 2010 and Reply filed August 19, 2010 in the above-referenced proceeding. The purpose of the attached information is to provide a more comprehensive explanation of the manner in which ACA's proposed conditions narrowly target the transaction-specific harms identified in its previous filings, remedy shortcomings in license conditions the Commission has previously utilized to mitigate similar harms, and are supported by the filings of other parties to the proceeding.
If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Pursuant to section 1.1206 of the Commission's rules, this letter is being filed electronically with the Commission.
