Sling TV’s President Testifies Against The AT&T Time Warner Merger During Trial

It may be no surprise that Dish and Sling TV would be concerned about the proposed AT&T Time Warner merger case. Now, Warren Schlichting, the President of Sling TV has made their concerns public during his testimony at the AT&T Time Warner trial.

“We would lose a lot of subs,” Schlichting said during an hour and a half of testimonies at the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. “There would be severe bleeding. It would be a lose/lose for us, and a win/win for them.”

Many opponents to the proposed merger have voiced concerns that AT&T would limit access to popular channels such as CNN, Cartoon Network, TBS, TNT, and many more. They fear that only AT&T owned services like DIRECTV NOW will be permitted to stream these networks.

AT&T has not made future plans for HBO and other networks public, but the Department of Justice has sued to block the sale after AT&T refused the terms for approval submitted by the Department of Justice.

Hearings for the case are currently underway but don’t look for any ruling on the merger anytime soon.
