A merger will never happen under a decent FTC. For most of the US (land mass, not population of course) the only option IS satellite. No way will the FTC do away with that competition. It didn't happen under Bush, and it sure as heck won't happen under an FTC headed by an Obama appointee.

Disagree. Even if we are talking geographic, most of the areas where people reside are able to get TV from one or more multiple sources: Cable, Fiber, Internet, OTA, cell, Satellite. Also remember that price is more determined by all of the source providers; so even if one company were to fail or if both merged, the competition from the other providers within the more populated areas will keep prices in check.
