- Dish Network (DISH) and DirecTV (DTV) could see some extra volatility today as investors weigh the impact of Comcast's acquisition of Time Warner Cable.
- Media analysts have discounted the idea that a DirecTV-Dish Network merger could easily pass muster with regulators, but Comcast CEO Brian Roberts seems to be brimming with confidence that his deal will get done.
- The suggestions for the Pay-TV providers vary widely as growth in emerging markets and wireless spectrum plays factor in, but a mega-merger isn't completely off the table.
- DTV +1.1% premarket - while DISH hasn't opened for trading yet.
