Netflix: Takeover by Microsoft apparently in planning

Activision Blizzard: Phil Spencer pleased with acquisition progress

According to the latest online reports, Microsoft is interested in acquiring Netflix.

Apparently, a takeover of Netflix by Microsoft is being prepared in the background. As Reuters reports, Netflix is ​​on Microsoft’s shopping list and Satya Nadella would be willing to pay around 190 billion for the streaming service.

Reuters said: “With a market value of $1.8 trillion, 13 times Netflix’s as of early December, Microsoft can afford the acquisition. A premium of 30% would value Netflix at nearly $190 billion.”

Reuters also reports that despite the high sums, a takeover would be easier to implement in Brussels and Washington than the current and open Activision Blizzard deal, since the two companies work very closely together and Microsoft President Brad Smith also sits on the Netflix board.

Microsoft may want to create an all-in-one streaming service with Netflix and Xbox Game Pass.
