Como seria com a fusão “Warner-Paramount”?

By Ninian Carter

December 22, 2023 - Se for acordada a fusão da Warner Bros. Discovery com a Paramount
Global, e aprovada pelos reguladore federais, criará a terceira maior empresa de meios de comunicação do mundo.

Preliminary talks between Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global could lead to a merger sometime after April 2024, when a clause barring Warner from conducting new acquisitions is lifted.

A combination of the two media giants would unite under a single roof famous Hollywood intellectual properties such as the Harry Potter and Mission: Impossible franchises, plus the CNN and CBS News outlets.

Both companies have been struggling as U.S. viewers cancel cable-TV subscriptions in favour of streaming services which are expensive to run and aren’t making enough money yet to cover shrinking profits on traditional networks.

In the event of a merger between Warner and Paramount, it would make them the world’s third largest news media company, behind only Comcast and Thomson Reuters.
