What happens now that Comcast/Time Warner Cable is kaput?

Regardless of whether it was ever going to be approved by the FCC and U.S. Justice Department, the long-awaited conclusion of the just-scuttled $45.2 billion merger between Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) was always going to have a major impact on the U.S. pay-TV business and broadband business. New deals could emerge between cable players, or potentially between cable and wireless companies. For instance, T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS) CEO John Legere said earlier this week that "I think you need to think about the cable industry and players like us as not competitors but potential partners and alternatives for each other in the future."
