Short Take: Denver poised to OK AT&T-TCI deal

The Denver City Council approved the transfer of local cable franchise licenses to AT&T from Tele-Communications Incorporated on an 11-1 vote. The city ordinance, which still faces a second reading vote next week, doesn't include "open access" language that would require TCI to open its cable networks to competitors. TCI has won approval for its merger with AT&T from 914 of 967 local governments.
