Comcast/NBCU Hearing Won't Be Webcast


Turns out the House Energy & Commerce Committee is not streaming today's Comcast/NBCU field hearing in Chicago as was planned.
A staffer for the Energy & Commerce Committee had told Multichannel News Wednesday the hearing would be Webcast. Today, the committee said the building where it was being held did not have that capabilty and apologized for any confusion.

A House Judiciary Committee hearing on the deal June 7 also was not Webcast.

Ironically, one of the issues in the deal is access to video content online.

"We just did not have he capacity to stream this field hearing," a spokeswoman said. Video and a transcript would be made available in the next couple of days, she said.
