Re: Merged:-Comcast makes Bid for Sky

I'm not sure VM will get together with Vodafone now.

When someone on here said that Vodafone has axed their soon-to-launch tv service, I thought that was a prelude to a merger with VM, but since then, LG sold most of their European cable assets to Vodafone except VM.

As for a Comcast purchase of Canal+, I'm not so sure. Sky is the second largest broadband company in the UK, so it's obvious why Comcast is interested in that purchase, but a failing French satellite tv company is less attractive.

I didn't know the French retained the Universal Music company, so that's interesting. On that specific item, Comcast might do a deal with Vivendi, but I don't think they'll be interested in Canal+ though.
