Satellite providers in focus as Pay-TV landscape evolves

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.
