That can only be good for the customer as there will be more transparency and less smoke and mirrors.

Re: John Malone/Liberty/VM General News Thread

In my predecessor thread to this one I talked about Starz, the American competitor to HBO that was fully owned by Malone until he swapped ownership in that for a stake in Lionsgate who bought Starz. Anyway... CBS is looking to buy Starz and if that happens, that might then start the ball rolling on the next wave of media mergers that I've spoken about.

On the linked page if you scroll down is the latest interview that Malone did with CNBC, well worth a listen if you have the time. He makes no secret he thinks his companies should be part of larger media empires, it's just the question of which one.
