After weeks of signaling it would do so , Comcast is making a play at 21st Century Fox's TV and film assets. Hoping to derail Disney's pending, stock-based $52.4 billion deal with Fox, Comcast is stepping in with a higher, all-cash offer for $35 per share, which totals approximately $65 billion.

The deal offers $35 per share for 21st Century Fox in cash, a bid that the company says is a "19 percent" premium over a bid that Disney has already made for a slice of Rupert Murdoch's empire.
