An anonymous reader writes to tell us that Comcast and General Electric announced a joint venture yesterday to control NBC Universal with Comcast coming out with the controlling interest. Comcast’s hopes seem to be on succeeding in a marriage of distribution and content where Time Warner failed. “The deal was approved by the companies’ boards, and is subject to regulatory approval. GE said it expects the deal to go through in the third quarter of 2010. Congress has already said it will hold a hearing to investigate whether Comcast will gain “undue advantages” from the deal that gives it access to programming.”
