I don't expect FOX to merge with anyone. They are what they are for the foreseeable future imho.Disney+'s global ARPU is dragged down because it's sold so cheap in parts of Asia. Jason Kilar (now running HBO Max for at least awhile longer) did a good job as CEO of Hulu. It now has over 40 million US subs, just behind HBO/HBO Max.
Hmm, first I've heard of that one. The big one I read about today is NBCU and ViacomCBS. NBCU and Warner had been in talks and while I think it would've been a better match-up than Warner and Discovery, I think AT&T was so scared of another anti-trust trial and they opted for the easier deal. So now NBCU is left looking for someone else to help them scale up to compete with Disney and Netflix.
- Sony Pictures (less interesting after just striking a long-term output deal with Netflix)
- Fox (broadcast, news, sports nets)
- Lionsgate (includes Starz)
- MGM (includes Epix)
- Crown Media (i.e. Hallmark nets, privately held)
You won't see NBC and CBS merge. Not happening.
Sony maybe but they'd Lilly be the buyer if someone else like lions gate and amc maybe. I could see Viacom going after those two as well. Maybe even NBC. But really I don't expect to much from NBC.
And I doubt crown will ever be sold.
