Maybe mods could rename the thread to “Takeovers and Mergers”.

Anyways, Comcast goes big on Sky in the UK.

Fox must now be aiming to keep Sky out of the Disney purchase (their 34% share was announced by Disney to be past of their purchase), why else would they be wanting to pursue aquiring it?

Umm, no? In 2017, Disney is first with a 21% box office share, followed by Warner Brothers and then Universal.

Check your facts before posting please.

I was actually talking about the size of Universal’s library (not box office sales) and that being a potential factor for Comcast.

You literally said market share. What does market share mean if not box office sales? Once again you’re just changing your argument after being caught out.

Universal might have more hours of content, but every hour of Universal content might be worth a fraction of what Disney content could demand.

Sorry I used the incorrect wording, but library size is what I was talking about, I’m not changing any argument.
