@cmwade77 @cmwade77 said AT&T promised not to raise prices. Where does AT&T make that promise? I see the part about how "it will enable the merged company to reduce prices" and they did by offering WatchTV at $15 per month. AT&T never offered a $15 streaming tv service before, but because of the merger they can now. So AT&T did exactly what they said the merger would allow. From the same Ars Techica article you linked to: Has AT&T withheld content from other pay-tV operators? No. Did AT&T reduce its own consumer pay-TV prices? Yes. Are price benefits flowing to consumers quickly? Did the merger efficiencies exert downward pressure on consumer prices almost immediately? Yes, as evidenced by new WatchTV streaming service at $15 per month.
