The FCC Just Approved Altice Buying Cablevision
May 4, 2016
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said late on Tuesday it had approved European telecoms group Altice NV’s acquisition of U.S. cable company Cablevision Systems in a $17.7 billion deal that includes assumption of debt.
The Dutch firm still needs approval from the state of New York and New York City. If the deal is approved, Altice would become the fourth largest U.S. cable provider. Cablevision has 3.1 million subscribers, mostly in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
