康卡斯特正以650亿美元的价格收购福克斯的娱乐业务,并与迪士尼成为下一个大型媒体公司。

这一出价仅仅是在联邦法官批准AT&T收购时代华纳并驳回了政府关于它将损害有线和卫星电视竞争并为消费者提供流媒体电视和电影费用的一个联邦法官的一天之后。

该裁决标志着康卡斯特也能赢得监管部门的批准。 其对福克斯的收购与AT&T-Time Warner交易有许多相似之处。

康卡斯特说,它的报价比迪斯尼的全股票交易高出19%。

二十一世纪福克斯的战斗来临之际,传统娱乐公司试图通过收集更多的资产来与Netflix等技术公司进行更好的竞争,以吸引观众的注意力和资金。

Comcast is making a US$65 billion bid for Fox’s entertainment businesses, setting up a battle with Disney to become the next mega-media company.

The bid comes just a day after a federal judge cleared AT&T’s takeover of Time Warner and rejected the government’s argument that it would hurt competition in cable and satellite TV and jack up costs to consumers for streaming TV and movies.

The ruling signaled that Comcast could win regulatory approval, too; its bid for Fox shares many similarities with the AT&T-Time Warner deal.

Comcast says its offer is 19 per cent higher than Disney’s all-stock deal.

The battle for Twenty-First Century Fox comes as traditional entertainment companies try to amass more properties to compete better with technology companies such as Netflix for viewers’ attention — and dollars.
