LL Cool J and Ice Cube have their sights set on a number of profitable sports activities channels. As reported by TMZ, the 2 veterans are a part of a "highly effective group seeking to bid on 22 regional sports activities channels." How did all these sports activities channels abruptly develop into out there? Blame all of it on Disney. The billion-dollar leisure firm scooped up 21st Century Fox, however lawmakers imagine that since Disney owns ESPN, they should not be capable to personal all of Fox's sports activities networks. The Justice Department is forcing Disney to promote the sports activities stations. That contains Fox Sports San Diego, Fox Sports Arizona, Fox Sports Detroit, Fox Sports Southwest, and so forth. Nestled within the record of channels is the YES Network.
Acquiring the YES Network could be profitable for whoever nabs the New York-based sports activities channel that broadcasts Yankee video games. The Yankees have one of the vital loyal fan bases in all of sports activities. Disney claims that the YES Network is value between $5 and $6 billion. That's nothing although, because the deal for all 22 sports activities channels is predicted to be between $15 and $25 billion. Cube and LL have aligned themselves with billionaire Alex and Ani jewellery founder Carolyn Rafaelian. Initial bids for the channels are due in on November eight.
