According to CNBC, Comcast decided to drop out of the race after Disney’s latest bid of $71 billion. Instead, Comcast’s focus is on acquiring European TV service, Sky. Previously, Comcast bid $65 billion for Fox, which was more than Disney’s original offer and started a “bidding war” for Fox.

As we reported last week, Comcast boosted its offer for Sky to $34 billion after Fox increased its offer for the same company to $32.5 Billion.

Brian Roberts, Chairman, and CEO of Comcast released a statement saying:

I’d like to congratulate Bob Iger and the team at Disney and commend the Murdoch family and Fox for creating such a desirable and respected company.
