Vivendi owns 20%. GE owns 80% The FCC actually forbids foreign ownership ofa broadcast network. They actually ruled that Fox is not foreign owned. I am not sure I buy that determination but they made it.


Geronimo,

So then how does Vivendi get away with part ownership of NBC?

Fox Broadcasting Company is owned by Fox Entertainment Group, which is part of News Corporation (NYSE NWS), which is a Delaware Corporation :sure:
Rupert Murdoch and family own 30% of News Corp. Originally incorporated in Australia, it was reincorporated in the U.S. in 2004.
I got this info from Wikipedia. Kewl! :hurah:
Here's a list of News Corp. holdings: http://en.wikipedia....ration#Holdings
