Federal Judge Clears AT&T-Time Warner Merger

A federal judge has given the green light for AT&T to buy Time Warner.

That could have far-reaching implications in an industry that's about to be controlled by one fewer company.

The Justice Department had  sued to try to stop  the merger, saying AT&T could theoretically charge competing companies more money to carry Time Warner content like CNN or HBO.

AT&T said it won't do that, since it wants its content to get wide distribution.

Once the merger is complete, AT&T  will have control over  its wireless company, satellite TV provider DirecTV and the Warner Bros.

Movie studios, which churn out major franchises.
