Sky battle rages as Comcast offers £26bn

The battle for Sky intensified on Wednesday night as Comcast raised its bid for Sky, valuing the pay TV giant at £26bn.

The move by the NBC owner came less than 24 hours after 21st Century Fox increased its offer to £24.5bn.

That topped Comcast’s previous £22bn offer and is part of an escalating war between media giants including Disney.
