Comcast has pulled back on its Internet services in anticipation of a merger with Time Warner Cable, saying it will no longer offer Internet TV streaming services and other online services, including Hulu.
The move comes after a merger of Time Warner and Comcast is set to be approved by the FCC on Thursday.
In a statement, Comcast said that it will “remain an active player in the Internet ecosystem, providing content and services across all of our business units, including Internet TV, video on demand, and other broadband services,” but will not offer Internet access to Comcast customers.
Comcast is a major player in both the cable and broadband markets, with over a billion subscribers.
Comcast’s move follows a merger proposal by Time Warner that has been the subject of fierce competition and controversy.
The merger is expected to lead to a net loss for Comcast, which would lead to the loss of nearly 600,000 jobs across the US.
The announcement comes as President Donald Trump continues to fight the merger, calling it a “disaster.”
