The U.S. Senate has set a date for a hearing on the proposed merger between AT&T and Time Warner.

The hearing will take place Dec. 7, and both companies’ chief executives will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee’s antitrust subcommittee to attest to the potential effects of the merger.

“The hearing will examine the impact of the proposed transaction on consumers, including the implications for competition and innovation in the creation and distribution of video content,” says an official statement on the hearing.

The AT&T-Time Warner deal was announced Oct. 22 and is valued at $85 billion. AT&T recently acquired DirecTV, and Time Warner’s portfolio includes Warner Bros., HBO and CNN.
