(Bloomberg) -- AT&T Inc. is in talks to combine content assets with Discovery Inc. in a deal that could create a entertainment giant to better compete with Netflix Inc. and Walt Disney Co., people with knowledge of the matter said.Discussions are ongoing and there’s no certainty they will lead to a transaction, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.Any deal would mark a major shift in AT&T’s strategy after years of work to combine telecommunications and media assets under one roof. AT&T gained some of the biggest brands in entertainment through its acquisition of Time Warner Inc., which was completed in 2018.Through its WarnerMedia unit, AT&T owns CNN, HBO, Cartoon Network, TBS, TNT and the Warner Bros. studio. Discovery, backed by cable mogul John Malone, controls networks including HGTV, Food Network, TLC and Animal Planet.Chief Executive Officer David Zaslav has helped Discovery bulk up through acquisitions, including a purchase of HGTV owner Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. that closed in 2018. Discovery’s class A shares have risen more than 18% this year, valuing the company at almost $24 billion. AT&T has gained 12%, giving it a market capitalization of $230 billion in New York.The companies are still negotiating the structure of a transaction, and details could change, the people said. Representatives for AT&T and Discovery declined to comment.Selling AssetsAT&T CEO John Stankey has been cleaning house at the sprawling telecom titan, cutting staff and selling underperforming assets. The company has been funneling money into rolling out its 5G wireless network, which requires billions of dollars of investment, as well as expanding its fiber-optic footprint.The company has been boosting movie and television production to attract subscribers to its HBO Max streaming service. It also needs cash to pay down debt.Any move involving AT&T’s content assets would come just months after it reached a deal to spin off its DirecTV operations in a pact with buyout firm TPG. AT&T agreed in December to sell its anime video unit Crunchyroll to a unit of Sony Corp. for $1.2 billion.The company has also parted with its Puerto Rico phone operations, a stake in Hulu, a central European media group and almost all its offices at New York’s Hudson Yards.(Updates to add details of businesses starting in sixth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
Australian cricket has been plunged back into the ball-tampering crisis of three years ago just as Steve Smith hopes to regain the captaincy he lost after the cheating incident in Cape Town. Cameron Bancroft, the opening batsman who was caught scuffing the ball with sandpaper, indicated in an interview with the Guardian at the weekend that the bowlers also knew what was going on. Only Bancroft, Smith and David Warner were found guilty of any involvement in the incident at the time. Cricket Australia responded to Bancroft’s comments by issuing a statement saying they would look into any new evidence. Now David Saker, who was the Australia bowling coach at the time, has hinted — in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald — at collective responsibility and wider knowledge of what was going on. “The disappointing thing is it’s never going to go away. Regardless of what’s said. We all know that we made a monumental mistake. The gravity wasn’t as plain until it all came out,” he said. “There were a lot of people to blame. It could have been me to blame, it could have been someone else. It could have been stopped and it wasn’t, which is unfortunate.” Saker believes the ball-tampering affair will dog Australian cricket for decades, and drew parallels with the under-arm incident involving Trevor Chappell in 1981. Bancroft, currently playing for Durham, was banned for nine months for his part in the incident and has not played for Australia since losing his place during the 2019 Ashes. “Uh … yeah, look, I think, yeah, I think it’s pretty probably self-explanatory,” he said when asked if the bowlers knew what was going on in Cape Town. The dredging up of the ball-tampering saga could not come at a worse time for Smith as his bid to regain the captaincy gathers momentum. A month ago he publicly declared he would like his old job back when Tim Paine steps down, probably at the end of this winter’s Ashes series. Paine also backed Smith for the job. It could also be potentially embarrassing for Pat Cummins, Paine’s deputy and Smith’s main rival for the job, because he was part of the bowling attack in Cape Town. But despite the statement from CA there is unlikely to be any great desire to reopen the case. An inquiry found that Smith, David Warner and Bancroft were the guilty players. Darren Lehmann resigned as head coach. James Sutherland stood down as CA’s chief executive and performance director Pat Howard left his role as part of sweeping changes at the top of Australian cricket. The investigation only focussed on the Cape Town Test and did not look into whether there had been any previous examples of ball tampering. Alastair Cook wrote in his book in 2019 that Warner admitted to ball tampering during a first-class match in the 2017-18 Ashes when it was noticeable the Australian attack found more swing than England. “David Warner, a couple of beers into his celebration, mentioned that he used substances attached to the strapping on his hand to accelerate the deterioration of the ball during a first-class match,” wrote Cook. “I looked at Steve Smith who shot a glance that said: ‘Ooh, you shouldn’t have said that,”
