It's official.

GE is giving up NBC Universal to Comcast - they will combine powers to create a new entity 51% owned by Comcast, 49% owned by GE but controlled by Comcast.

And NOW, Congress has a new thing to talk about and distract the public! Hooray!

Will THIS be the event that gets Telemundo added to my Comcast lineup? We can only hope!

This same topic came up on one of the TV sites I read...and Comcast actually had someone respond to it. One Scott McNulty came by to essentially say that Comcast believes that cable content shouldn't be given away for free, but broadcast content should, and that they will not change the availability of NBC shows on Hulu. "Hulu will continue to be managed and offered to consumers just as it is." http://www.tvsquad.com/2009/12/03/yup-comcast-now-owns-nbc/

But I don't use it to watch broadcast TV (well not US broadcast) other than late night talk shows. Everything is cable or international.

That was a rerun. I'd seen that happen several months ago. Cool to watch, but I haven't watched Price in a while now.
