Comcast and NBC head back to Hill for hearings

Comcast and NBC Universal will be back in the hot seats next week, as the House Judiciary Committee looks at competition in the media and entertainment industries and how the companies' proposed $30 billion merger affects those markets.

Comcast chief executive Brian Roberts and NBC Universal chief executive Jeffrey Zucker were questioned in Senate and House hearings on Feb. 3, and Democratic lawmakers grilled the executives on how the merger could potentially affect consumers and competition in the broadband, cable services and media industries.

The committee hasn't finalized its witness list.
