Vote of the week: The Comcast/NBC Universal deal - good or bad for the theme parks?
Written by Robert Niles
The big news this week has been cable TV operator Comcast's purchase of 51 percent of NBC Universal, with an option to buy the rest of the company from GE in a few years.Tweet
NBC Universal is the full or part owner of the several Universal theme parks, including parks in Orlando, Los Angeles, Japan and soon, Singapore. How will this latest change in ownership (GE bought Universal from French water company Vivendi just six years ago) will affect Universal and its theme parks remains to be seen. I offered my two cents earlier this week.
Now let's hear from you:
Tell us in the comments why you voted the way you did. Although the current NBC Universal and theme park managers will remain in place, tell us what, specifically, are you looking for from Comcast in its management of the Universal theme parks over the long term.
And thanks for reading Theme Park Insider.
