AT&T may buy DirecTV for US$50 billion

Lucas Mearian | May 14, 2014
AT&T is in advanced talks to acquire DirecTV for about $50 billion, according to published reports.

Now, Entner said, regulators may believe the large cable TV providers need the counterbalance of an alternative wireless TV provider.

"In a lot of markets you have a monopoly of cable TV providers ... and if you want competition, you want to either bring in IPTV like with Verizon FiOS or AT&T with U-verse or... a satellite TV provider," Entner said.
