Charter Communications is swooping in to take advantage of the failed merger between Time Warner and Comcast. The company just announced a merger that will see Time Warner Cable absorbed by Charter for a massive $78.7 Billion dollar payout. We have included the full press release in the thread below for all of the details. Here at HQ, we aren't at all surprised by this.
