FCC pauses shot clock again on Comcast-TWC, AT&T-DirectTV deal reviews

For the second time, the FCC is pausing its 180-day "shot clock" for its regulatory reviews of this year's two mega mergers of Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC), and AT&T (NYSE: T) and DirecTV (NASDAQ: DTV). The regulator said its decision was due to pending court decisions on how to handle disclosures of information related to deals made by video providers with programming companies.
