Public Gets Its Say in Comcast-NBC U Deal

Federal regulators have just posted a call for public comment on the Comcast and NBC Universal transaction.

The FCC’s notice, details here, sets May 3 as the deadline for comments and petitions, including petitions to deny. Then there’s a June 2 deadline for responses to those comments and petitions. And then there is a june 17 deadline for replies to those responses.

One significant aspect of this is that it starts setting a time frame for the transaction’s approval process, which has been expected to take until late this year.
