    Disney raises bid for Fox assets to $71.3bn, topping Comcast

    The battle for control of some of the entertainment world's most prized properties has heated up, with Disney dramatically increasing its offer for the entertainment assets of 21st Century Fox. Disney raised its offer for the assets from $52.4bn to $71.3bn and also for the first time made an alternative available to Fox shareholders who would rather receive an element of cash instead of Disney shares. The move comes a week after Comcast (Swiss: CMCSA.SW - news) , the US cable giant, offered $65bn in cash for the assets, which include 20th Century Fox - the Hollywood film studio behind hits such as Avatar, X-Men and Ice Age - US cable TV networks including FX and National Geographic and international pay television assets including Star TV in India.

    [$$] U.K. Clears Path for Fox to Partake in Bidding War for Sky

    LONDON—The U.K. government has all but given Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox Inc. permission to partake in a bidding war for British pay-TV giant Sky PLC, clearing one of the last obstacles for a corporate takeover battle that also includes Walt Disney Co. and Comcast Corp. British Culture Secretary Matt Hancock earlier this month indicated he would approve Fox’s $15 billion bid to buy the 61% of Sky it doesn’t already own, on the condition that Fox sell Sky’s news channel if its bid succeeds. On Tuesday, Mr. Hancock said he approved of Fox’s sweetened proposal to sell the channel to Disney, which itself is trying to buy the majority of Fox.
