2. Comcast Fights Over 21st Century Fox, Currently Valued At $71.3 Billion
Comcast is currently embroiled in a battle over who will get to own Fox's entertainment arm, 21st Century Fox, and the cable giant is facing off with Disney.
Disney originally offered to acquire 21st Century Fox in December 2017, and was then bested by Comcast with an all-cash offer of $65 billion in May. The stakes keep getting higher as Disney in July countered with a $71.3 billion offer for most of Fox's content assets in a deal that is expected to be voted on by shareholders on July 27. Comcast, in the meantime, is reportedly planning its next counterbid.
