Instant View: Federal Judge OKs AT&T Takeover of Time Warner

BRETT SAPPINGTON, DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT RESEARCH DIRECTOR, PARKS ASSOCIATES, DALLAS:

"If you're AT&T, who do you want to include in your own skinny bundle? The channels you own. This means if you're a small content network, you have less negotiating power, because the bundler owns its own content."

Sappington added that without conditions, AT&T doesn't have to guarantee anything other than its promise that it will play nice with other distributors and content providers.

"That's a big win for AT&T."
