An anonymous reader writes Last week, the Department of Justice filed an antitrust complaint to stop the merger between AT and T and T-Mobile USA. Now AT and T responded, arguing that the merger would benefit consumers by increasing competition and free up the spectrum.

Pass allows cable operators and other content providers to offer TV streaming from multiple sources through a single connection solution, while access is the platform for content protection, which can now offer streaming video to mobile devices . But it’s Media Server 4.5 that has been gathering the most attention of the press, through its support for IOS. Now do not get too excited, you still can not really use flash on your iPhone.
