The agreement comes more than eight months after Charter Communications and Liberty Media made their first foray to try and negotiate a deal to acquire Time Warner Cable and follows months of conversations between Time Warner Cable and Comcast about the prospect of an acquisition of the company.

Comcast will indicate a willingness to divest 3 million subs from the combined company, according to sources familiar with the situation.
Comcast, which is widely considered under-leveraged in the cable industry, will nonetheless use no cash in the acquisition, which is expected to be officially announced Thursday morning U.S. time.
