After the Merger happens, what costs $139.00 a month will balloon to $159.00 a month or higher. Conbine this with the ever increasing number of cheaply-produced programming will do nothing but alienate subscribers, who like me have chosen to seek our entertainment and informational needs elsewhere. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Take warning, the whole system will eventually collapse like a house of cards. A house divided against itself cannot stand!

    I’ll make a point to post TWC prices after the merger to show you are wrong. As there are more alternatives now, no MVPD cannot afford to raise prices that fast. But then again, you will pay the inflated price for internet without a bundle because you do not subscribe to cable tv.
