EU antitrust regulators are set to approve U.S. cable company Comcast’s bid for European pay-TV company Sky without demanding concessions, two people familiar with the matter said on Friday.
Comcast is actually battling Rupert Murdoch’s Twenty-First Century Fox for Sky. The media mogul’s bid to buy all of Sky has been delayed by politicians as well as also regulators worried about the power of the enlarged media group.
The European Commission, which is actually scheduled to decide on Comcast’s offer by June 15, did not respond to a request for email. the idea cleared without conditions Fox’s bid for Sky in April last year. Comcast declined to comment.
