Liberty's Malone sees possible T-Mobile takeover under Trump

Wednesday 11 January 2017 | 11:35 CET | News
Liberty Media chairman John Malone said he expects less restrictive telecom regulations from incoming US president Donal Trump, raising the the possibility that three major cable TV companies could join forces and enter the wireless business by acquiring T-Mobile US, Bloomberg reported. The move would be one response from the cable sector, as other telecom and telephony providers such as AT&T start offering live TV over broadband. Malone made the statement at a Lions Gate Entertainment investor event.
