The cable and media giant published solid first-quarter results, powered by two enormous sporting events, and also doubled down on its $31 billion takeover bid for British broadcaster Sky.
Comcast Corp. ( CMCSA) has placed a $30.7 billion bid for British satellite broadcaster Sky PLC that kicks off a bidding war with 21st Century Fox Inc. ( FOXA) and Walt Disney Co. ( DIS). Under the terms of Comcast’s bid, the company would pay $17.45 per share in cash for Sky, which has customers throughout Europe. To get regulatory approval for that takeover, the companies have agreed that Fox would sell Sky News to Disney.
The new Marvel movie is going to be huge, but it may hurt Disney's plan to snap up key Twenty-First Century Fox properties.
