New report says Comcast Wants to Buy Warner Bros. Discovery, and Merge With NBCUniversal

A new report claims Comcast is seeking to buy Warner Bros. Discovery and merge it with NBCUniversal.

The Hollywood Reporter reports Warner Bros. Discovery could end up merging with Comcast’s NBCUniversal, though negotiations would have to wait until April 2024 to begin due to the complicated structure of the possible merger.

Per THR, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts is eagerly awaiting April 2024, when the legal hurdles preventing the purchase of WBD will be out of the way. Of course, the merger of two massive media companies would still face numerous antitrust concerns, but it wouldn’t be impossible for the companies to join together. 

Of course, NBCUniversal is also the owner of the Peacock streaming service. Just think if Comcast were able to gain full control of Hulu and bring it together with Peacock. If an acquisition of Warner Bros. Discovery were also to happen, NBCUniversal would have a catalog of content to rival Disney.
