    Sky Is Comcast's Final Prize as Disney Battle Approaches Endgame

    After raising the white flag in the battle with Walt Disney Co. for the bulk of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, Comcast Corp. Chief Executive Officer Brian Roberts has one last prize to fight for: the British pay-TV company Sky Plc. Comcast currently has the upper hand in the race for Sky, with an offer of 26 billion pounds ($34 billion) that’s 6 percent higher than a rival, Disney-backed bid by Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox Inc., which already owns 39 percent of the company. Buying Sky would give Comcast international scale, a hedge against the erosion of cable-TV viewing in the U.S. and a larger palette to compete with streaming services like Amazon.com Inc. and Netflix Inc. Sky has 22.5 million customers across five European countries -- a continent where pay-TV trends have been more stable -- and is pushing into Spain and Switzerland.

    Comcast Is Out on Fox: Time to Buy Disney (DIS) Stock Now?

    Comcast concedes to Disney in bidding war for Fox assets

    Comcast Corp dropped its $66 billion bid for Twenty-First Century Fox Inc's entertainment assets on Thursday but said it would still try to expand its international footprint by acquiring 61 percent of European broadcaster Sky Plc (Frankfurt: 893517 - news) , the remainder of which is owned by Fox. Comcast (Swiss: CMCSA.SW - news) 's withdrawal is a concession to Walt Disney Co , which last month sweetened its offer for the Fox assets to $71.3 billion, in a bid to unite two storied Hollywood studios and several television networks under one corporate umbrella. Comcast's move de-escalates one of the media industry's most high-profile confrontations, which pitted Comcast Chief Executive Brian Roberts against Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch and Disney CEO Bob Iger.

    Comcast Surrenders to Disney in Fox Bid, to Keep Pursuing Sky

    Comcast Corp. will no longer seek to compete with Walt Disney Co.’s for a swath of 21st Century Fox Inc.’s entertainment assets, choosing to focus instead on winning control of the Sky Plc satellite service.

    Disney Spells It Out: Fox Might Not Increase Its Bid for Sky

    For the first time, Walt Disney Co. spelled out for investors that 21st Century Fox Inc. may choose not to increase its takeover offer for British broadcaster Sky Plc. The revelation boosted speculation that Disney and Comcast Corp. may carve up Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, with Comcast possibly taking control of U.K. pay-TV operator Sky while Disney acquires Fox’s media assets. “There’s a perfectly logical scenario where Disney gets Fox and now Comcast gets Sky, simply because the consequences of paying a huge amount for companies are very unpleasant,” said Claire Enders, founder of media research firm Enders Analysis, by phone.
