Could Comcast-TWC scuttling open door for Netflix acquisition?

Could Netflix be acquired by a pay-TV giant like Comcast? Now that the merger deal between Time Warner Cable and Comcast is dead, anything can happen. "Netflix could provide Comcast with an incredible team and platform to learn from, which could accelerate Comcast's virtual MVPD efforts," BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield posited recently.

FierceCable Editor Daniel Frankel takes a deep dive into the merger and acquisition possibilities that have arisen in the wake of Comcast-TWC in this special report.
