US media group Comcast has offered $US35 per share for the bulk of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets, valuing its bid at about $US65bn ($A86bn). Fox has advised that it will "carefully review and consider" the cash bid, which has trumped Walt Disney Company’s scrip bid. The Disney offer is valued at $US29.18 per share based on Fox’s current share price. Fox would retain assets such as Fox News and its broadcast TV network if either bid succeeds.
