U.S. vs. AT&T: a Court Fight Over the Future of TV

Justice Department has sought information from Dish, CBS, Starz and other media firms on $85 billion takeover of Time Warner

AT&T Inc., a company that had virtually nothing to do with show business three years ago, now faces a court battle that’s all about it.

Early signs suggest the legal fight over AT&T’s $85 billion Time Warner Inc. takeover will focus heavily on the small screen, drawing much of its evidence from the companies’ video rivals. Those competitors argue the telecom company will use Time Warner’s entertainment assets against them, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
