Deadline BIG MEDIA ep 72In this week’s podcast, Deadline Executive Editor David Lieberman and host David Bloom kick the tires from several perspectives on that $45 billion Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger that would remake the cable industry. What will it mean for the cable industry, Hollywood and consumers? And what are its prospects for winning regulatory approval?

The Davids also check in CBS’s red-hot quarter and continued optimism on retransmission fees despite the big cable merger; welcome the long-in-coming videogame industry revival; and engage in shameless speculation about the latest reports of an Apple set-top device, and whether it might survive the Time Warner-Comcast merger.
