    CBS Is Preparing to Survive in Netflix’s World

    The broadcast network is said to have made a $5 billion bid for Starz, a cable channel owned by the film-making company Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., which is set to report earnings for its latest quarter after the close of trading on Thursday. CBS is also likely inching closer to a recombination with Viacom Inc., a company with which CBS shares its controlling investor, Shari Redstone, 65. It’s been led by acting CEO Joseph Ianniello since September, when its longtime leader and face of the company, Leslie Moonves, was ousted following numerous sexual-harassment allegations.

    Lions Gate offered to sell Starz to CBS for $5.5 billion - sources

    The counter offer was made by the film studio behind the Hunger Games movies after CBS made an informal $5 billion bid for the cable network, the sources said. CBS's informal offer was made by Joseph Ianniello, the interim chief executive officer of CBS, about six weeks ago and Lions Gate Entertainment sought a higher valuation, the sources said. The approach underscores the scope of CBS's ambitions to compete more aggressively in a world in which it is squeezed by deep-pocketed tech companies on one side and rapidly consolidating peers on the other.
