Would It Be Better If Comcast Bought Fox Instead of Disney?

Would It Be Better If Comcast Bought Fox Instead of Disney?

You know that proposed mega-merger between Fox and Disney? Well Comcast might have something to say about it. On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we discussed which giant conglomerate we’d prefer buy the other giant conglomerate, along with Bill and Ted 3, and the latest on the Nintendo Switch‘s online service.

Joining host Jessica Chobot today was editor Kyle Anderson, producer Derek Johnson, and video editor Adam Murray, and they began with reports that Comcast has made a 60 billion dollar cash bid for Fox, which would trump Disney’s $52 billion stock offer. Would we prefer Comcast ends up merging with Fox rather than the Mouse? What would this mean for Marvel going forward?

Today we also learned Bill and Ted 3 will finally happen with Bill and Ted Face the Music, which will find them as middle-aged men who never actually wrote the song that saved the universe. Huh. Are we excited about this premise?

Finally, we’re finally getting details about prices for Nintendo Switch’s online service, with the most practical package being $20 a year. But is this a good value? Are we bummed their Virtual Console won’t be coming to the Switch? Is this a better way to enjoy the games anyway?

Nerdist News Talks Back airs live Monday through Thursday at 1PM PT on our YouTube and Alpha channels, then we wrap up the week with our hour-long Nerdist News What the Fridays at 1PM PT, only at Alpha. Tune in every day, because no matter who buys Fox, whether it’s Virgin, Amazon, Tesla, or The Vatican, we’ll be here to talk about it with you.

We still want to hear what you thought about today’s show, so talk back to us in the comments below.
