(Newser) – Comcast is set to announce its acquisition of NBC Universal tomorrow. The deal with GE will make Comcast an entertainment behemoth, with a big stake in the cable, TV, and movie industries. Combined assets of the venture would have been $51 billion last year, the Wall Street Journal reports. Anti-trust regulators must approve the deal before it goes into effect.
