Reports surfaced today on multiple news sources including Fox News that the FCC will approve the pending deal that has News Corp. (the parent of the Fox network of stations) purchasing satellite TV provider DirecTV. The deal reportedly comes with a few strings attached including an arbitration clause which allows cable providers a place to settle any possible hardball plays from Fox.

Reports today say TimeWarner will rid itself of the their vast music operations to an investment group lead by former Seagram’s CEO, Edgar Bronfman for 2.6 billion (U.S.) dollars. The Bronfman investment group beat out a bid from EMI (currently the 3rd largest music company) and comes as Sony Music and BMG have just entered into a musical merger. This deal has been predicted for weeks and rids TimeWarner of an unprofitable asset which should help them show a short to mid-term profit – a move designed to please Wall Street. Some sources online say EMI is now a takeover target but no possible suitors were mentioned. Plans for what Bronfman and his investment team intend to do with WEA have not been made public but with a rich back catalog of artists and many viable current artists, WEA could return to profitability.

JVC, the inventor of the VHS video format, recently announced the completion of technical specifications to enable authoring of DTS® sound on its D-VHS D-Theater high definition prerecorded video software platform as an optional sound system in addition to mandatory Dolby Digital and MPEG Audio (MPEG-1/layer 2).

The DTS system has been added as an option to the D-Theater platform for HD prerecorded content in the North American market.
