WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee's antitrust subcommittee will hold a hearing on Dec. 7 on the proposed merger of Time Warner Inc (TWX.N: Quote) and AT&T Inc (T.N: Quote), and the companies' chief executives will testify, the committee said in a statement.

"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," the statement said.
