The Federal Communications Commission's regulatory review of Philadelphia-based Comcast Corp.'s proposed $45-billion acquisition of Time Warner Cable Inc. remains temporarily suspended because of a dispute between the federal agency and content companies over the disclosure of confidential information.

The FCC is looking at contracts between CBS Corp., Time Warner Inc. and other content companies and the two cable-TV giants.

The confidentiality issue appeared to be resolved before new court actions this week in Washington.

The FCC's informal 180-day "shot clock" to review Comcast/Time Warner Cable has been suspended on Day 85 for more than a month. - Bob Fernandez
