ABSTRACT
This article focuses on Comcast Corp. joining Sony-MGM party. The Sony-led party buying Metro Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., Comcast will move up in the ranks of content players, gaining access to a huge pipeline of movie and television. Comcast Corp. could invest about $300 million for a 20% stake in Sony-MGM after the deal closes. Sony sought both the potential cash and connections to Comcast's 21 million customers to help put its bid over the top, sources familiar with the cable operator said. Those channels will likely be fed by Sony's 35,000-episode television library.
