    Comcast's (CMCSA +3.9%) move to charge extra fees to Level 3 (LVLT -0.5%) to run online movie content should be slapped down by the FCC, says Wall St. Cheat Sheet. The fee breaches net neutrality; breaks antitrust laws; and lastly, 'Comcast already sucks and has too much power.'

    U.S. telecom regulators will discuss net neutrality on Dec. 21, says the FCC. It couldn't come sooner, with Level 3 (LVLT) complaining Comcast (CMCSA) is forcing it to pay recurring fees to carry some of its web traffic.

    Nonprofit advocacy group Consumers Union launched a website and is buying ads to oppose Comcast's (CMCSA) pending $30B buyout of NBC Universal (GE). It sees the merger as a threat to consumer choice, a case buttressed by the current flap between Comcast and Level 3 (LVLT). The FCC and DOJ are completing their review of the deal.

    Comcast's (CMCSA) decision to charge Level 3 (LVLT) a recurring fee for the transmission of certain web content isn't just a blow to net neutrality or LVLT's finances. It could also have major ramifications for Comcast's proposed takeover of NBC Universal (GE).

    Comcast (CMCSA) is near the end of its journey to acquire 51% of NBC Universal (GE), but opposition is still gathering, with NetCoalition (representing a swath of Web players including Google (GOOG), Yahoo (YHOO), eBay (EBAY), Amazon.com (AMZN) and others) joining a few dozen other groups trying to turn up the heat on the deal.

    Comcast (CMCSA) is rolling out an iPad app (AAPL) that will let subscribers watch movies and TV shows on the device, as well as program DVRs and use it as a TV guide and channel changer. Meanwhile, the FCC is liable to impose conditions on the cableco's takeover of NBC Universal (GE) that would prevent it from withholding programming from Apple, Netflix (NFLX) and other competitors.

    Comcast's (CMCSA) positive results today came despite 622,000 lost subscribers this year - which the company says isn't really affecting core business. It says the deal for NBC Universal (GE) is getting closer and almost all the news is positive there, with great opportunity in its cable outlets like USA Network, Syfy, Bravo and Oxygen.

    A revealing infographic separates America's real corporate cash cows (GS, AAPL, GOOG, MSFT, INTC, QCOM) from the charlatans (JPM, BAC, T, CMCSA, VZ, IBM, GE). Bottom line: after factoring in debt, it's not $3.7T sitting on the sidelines, but rather -$750B.

    Google (GOOG) and NBC Universal (GE) cancel a ballyhooed TV ad partnership from 2008, as buyers reportedly complain about available prime-time inventory and Google's online-auction system. It's a blow, but Google still has deals with smaller networks as well as DirecTV (DTV) and Dish Network (DISH).
