Last month, Comcast and Charter poured some cold water on the telecommunications industry’s merger mania with an unusual new arrangement to collaborate on their entry into the mobile market, pledging to work together on any transaction with a wireless company in the next year. That means if Comcast decides to acquire, say, Sprint Corp., it’ll need Charter’s consent. Or if Verizon were to try to buy Charter, Comcast could block the transaction.
Brazil’s antitrust watchdog weighed in on AT&T Inc.’s $85.4 billion deal for Time Warner Inc., saying it sees a high anti-competitive risk. The nation’s telecommunications regulator had asked the antitrust agency known as Cade in June to review the deal, saying remedies should be adopted because it may negatively affect Brazil’s pay-TV market. The merger combines one of the world’s largest telecommunications providers with the owner of media properties like Warner Bros. and HBO.
Un socio de distribución en India del canal de cable estadounidense HBO dijo que la policía podría haber identificado la fuente de una filtración que condujo a que un episodio de la popular serie Game of Thrones (Juego de Tronos) fuera publicado en línea antes de su fecha de emisión oficial.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
