    Wyplay has become the latest set-top middleware and UX vendor to embrace the Android TV platform, and market a custom launcher for Android TV’s Operator Tier. Debuted in Q1 2017, and formalized in the second and third quarters of the same year, Operator Tier affords Android TV adoptees considerably more latitude in designing a device’s home-screen, app carousel, icons, and content placement.

    Comcast has made an offer for the entertainment assets of 21st Century Fox, outbidding the Walt Disney Company by around 19%. The offer, which would bring the NBC Universal and Fox movie and TV studios, cable networks and other operations including Sky under the same roof, was delivered by Comcast in a letter to the Fox board of directors yesterday. Comcast’s offer is for $35 per share in cash, with a value of $65 billion. In December, Fox shareholders agreed to sell the assets to Walt Disney for $52.4 billion in an all-stock transaction. Comcast is also making an offer to buy Sky, and said it would continue to pursue the acquisition in parallel with the Fox deal. The UK government approved both this offer and the Fox proposal to buy full control of Sky earlier this month. On Tuesday this week, a US federal court judge cleared the way for AT&T to acquire Time Warner, dismissing the government’s view that the takeover would be anti-competitive. The offer, worth $106 billion, was first made in December 2016. Barring a further move to block the deal by the US government, AT&T said it would aim to complete the deal by 20 June.

    That’s the key takeaway from Ribbon Perspectives 18’s Network Transformation panel held on June 5 in Los Angeles. With more than 600 attendees and loud L.A. style music blasting before, between, and after sessions, the event keeps growing. And of course, you don’t want to miss those perspectives. The panel had representatives from BT, Bell, and Verizon, all talking about their ongoing network transformation initiatives. All three are big on the role of software defined networks (SDN) as the key enabler of automation while preserving some of the legacy nodes that are fully depreciated and providing high reliability.
