With Comcast and DIRECTV going to war for the same cable box, it’s time to get the new box in your hands before Comcast goes bankrupt.
Comcast and DIRECTVs first merger deal was the most expensive ever negotiated by the two companies, and it’s also likely to be the one to happen first.
Comcast was hoping to bring in a new TV service that would replace DirecTSV, but the Directs merger is expected to end up costing $70 billion in the first quarter of 2021, the company reported on Tuesday.
Comcast also said it would be willing to pay $60 billion more to acquire Time Warner Cable in order to bring more competition to the cable TV market.
While the two networks are still trying to figure out how to work together, the two firms are currently working on a deal that would give Directv more time to catch up.
The new deal would require Comcast to purchase DIRECTV, which would be a bit of a shock since the two services are competing for viewers in a much more crowded market.
The two companies have been working on the deal for months, and now that they’re officially announcing the deal, it seems likely that it’s going to happen soon.
It also means that you should expect DIRECTV and Comcast to be in a good place when it comes to pricing and service.
