21st Century Fox has a new suitor, besides Disney. Turns out that Comcast has approached the studio regarding an acquisition as well. Comcast is interested in the same divisions as Disney, namely the film division. This would leave only a small division left at Fox, to focus on news and sports.

Neither Comcast or Disney would be allowed to own two broadcast networks so that would stay with Fox. Verizon is also reportedly interested in buying parts of Fox.
