NBC Universal

AOL Time Warner isn’t doing that well but big media mergers are still happening, this time GE are putting their NBC assets together with Vivendi’s Universal Studio to create a new entity that will include NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, Bravo, Telemundo, Universal movie and TV studios, USA, Sci-Fi and Trio as well as several theme parks.

With the rise of Tivo devices and broadband I keep thinking that within a few years we will order tv shows and some movies directly from the creators, one at a time. I’m not sure big conglomerates like these will be required or at least succesful, especially with the numbers they usually have to put up for investors to be happy, we’ll see.
