(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.

(Bloomberg) -- Singapore plans to close most in-school classes this week and move to home-based learning, as a spike in unlinked cases poses the biggest challenge since last year to the city’s efforts to tackle the pandemic.All primary, secondary, junior college and Millennia Institute students will shift to full home-based learning from May 19 till the end of the school term on May 28, the Ministry of Education said in a statement on Sunday. Preschools and student care centers remain open to support parents who have to work.“Some of these mutations are much more virulent and they seem to attack the younger children,” Chan Chun Sing, the new education minister said at a briefing. “We have to significantly reduce our movement and interactions in the coming days.”The country reported 38 new cases of Covid-19 infection in the community on Sunday, the health ministry said, the highest number in more than a year. These include 18 cases that are currently unlinked, which is the most concerning to officials as they signal undetected spread in the community.Schools will remain open to students who need more support, while all center-based tuition and enrichment classes should move activities online till the end of the so-called heightened alert period that is slated to last to June 13, according to the statement. This is to cut the intermingling of students from different schools. At least 10 children tested positive for coronavirus in the past week. The Southeast Asian nation Sunday returned to a month of the lockdown-like conditions it last imposed a year ago. The government banned dining-in and limited gatherings to two people because of a rise in the number of untraceable virus infections. Singapore had been one of the world’s success stories in containing Covid.Vaccination for ChildrenSingapore plans to vaccinate children under 16 years old after a recent rise of Covid-19 infections among students in the island state, Chan said earlier.The ministries of education and health are working out plans for the “vaccination of our students,” Chan wrote on his Facebook page. “Once the approval for use is granted, we will roll out vaccinations to those below 16.”U.S. health regulators have approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children aged 12 to 15, opening the way for other nations to inoculate younger people. The Pfizer-BioNTech is among the vaccines approved by the Singaporean government.During the briefing, new health minister Ong Ye Kung also said the government is studying holding off the second vaccine shots in order to give more people at least one dose of inoculation.“There have been many international studies and it shows that even with one dose, it confers good protection without compromising efficacy,” Ong said. “Our scientists have been studying this.”‘Covid Zero’ Havens Find Reopening Harder Than Taming VirusIn a post on her Facebook page on Sunday, Ho Ching, the wife of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, encouraged the elderly to get vaccinated, even as she cited a scarcity in the shots.“Yes, our vaccine deliveries are slow this month and possibly next 1-2 months,” said Ho, who is also the chief executive officer of Singapore’s state-owned investor Temasek Holdings Pte. until October.(Updates with support system in fifth 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.
