Comcast to buy Time Warner Cable: Will you pay more?

Serious questions are being asked about what Comcast's proposed $45.2 takeover of Time Warner Cable would mean for your cable and internet.

Comcast is already the largest cable and internet provider in the United States with 21.7 million cable subscribers.

Time Warner Cable is a distant second with 11.2 million customers. If the deal is approved by federal regulators, Comcast will have a presence in 19 of the top 20 markets from New York to Los Angeles.

It will also control cable for about 30 percent of the nation.

Should that be a concern? And will you pay more?
