Comcast is ready to ruin the marriage Disney-21st Century Fox with a $60 billion counter-offer.

Comcast, the largest broadband company in the U.S., seems to be willing to re-launch its bid to acquire the Fox group. The owner of NBC-Universal assembled as much as $60b from investment banks to launch an offer that would surpass that of the Disney group, which amounted to $52.4 billion dollars.

Brian Roberts, CEO of the group, has announced, however, that the proposal will be made official only if the outcome of the AT&T-Time Warner antitrust trial turns out to be positive. Since the two acquisitions have many aspects in common, if the federal court gives the go-ahead to the marriage between AT&T and Time Warner, the Comcast group claims that then it will be ready to launch its offer for Fox.

In addition, the American company already has a bid in to buy the entirety of Sky with an offer of $100 billion that, for Rupert Murdoch, will be impossible to refuse.
