Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Comcast are not happy with Disney not launching HULU internationally, they believe it undercuts HULUs value.
This could be a interesting fight to watch, i think Disney will end up buying Comcasts share in HULU.

Who's the largest shareholder? I've forgotten. I'd imagine it's Disney though.

Planned to happen no earlier than 2024….

Comcast on Tuesday agreed to sell its ownership stake in the streaming video service to Disney. The sale won't happen for at least another five years, but Disney will take full operational control of Hulu right now.

The deal is a sign of how much streaming video has changed in the last few years. Hulu was at one time a joint venture between several media titans: Disney (DIS), 21st Century Fox, Comcast's NBCUniversal and Time Warner (now WarnerMedia). None of those companies had majority control.

Now Hulu is effectively a Disney product. The company became the majority stakeholder in the streaming video service after it closed a deal for most of Fox's assets in March. Last month, WarnerMedia — now owned by AT&T (T) — agreed to sell its 9.5% interest back to Hulu. (CNN is a division of WarnerMedia.)

Comcast (CMCSA) owns roughly a third of Hulu. Under the terms of the deal, Comcast will sell its interest to Disney for Hulu's fair market value no earlier than 2024. Disney has guaranteed that the sale price will reflect a minimum total equity value of $27.5 billion for Hulu at that time, according to a press release.

Spot on. There's no commercial sense in Disney expanding Hulu internationally and having to pay more for it in 2024 when it can just offer similar content via the Star brand. Comcast knows and accepts this. No fight to watch.

A lot of speciation about Comcast going for Lionsgate or doing something with CBS Viacom although the latter could come under a lot more investigation.
