    Comcast to pay $1.5bn to control Universal Studios Japan

    Comcast will acquire a 51% stake in Japanese theme park owner USJ as the largest US cable company seeks to expand its business overseas. Comcast’s NBCUniversal unit will pay $1.5 billion for the stake in the owner of Universal Studios Japan in Osaka city. USJ’s Chief Executive Officer Glenn Gumpel will step down while Goldman Sachs Group, MBK Partners and Gumpel will retain minority stakes.

    Lawsuits expected following net neutrality decision

    Following the Federal Communications Commission's historic decision on net neutrality on Thursday, Comcast has warned a bitter legal fight is coming. Jose Pagliery writes for CNN that the FCC passed new internet regulation to prevent network owners, such as AT&T, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon from discriminating against what kind of traffic runs over their networks. ComCast's warning is similar to the one AT&T made earlier this month. The agency's rules won't be official until perhaps summer, which is when major telecom companies will challenge the rules in court.
