Battlestar Galactica: 25th Anniversary CD

Awesome new report from JohnBaxter at Colonial Fleets: "I received a message from Stu Phillips yesterday. He told me that Geffen Records will be releasing a digitally remixed CD to Battlestar Galactica. As far as he knows, it will be the same as the original LP. However, I have looked on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Tower Records, and they all list the CD coming out November 18, with a bonus track. Sounds good. I can't wait! This CD release will be an added treat for us fans. First the DVDs, then the companion book and now the CD. Boy, this really is the anniversary year." Many thanks to JohnBaxter for the report!

NBC/Vivendi Merger Creates Media Giant

The Associated Press has confirmed that NBC will acquire the entertainment assets of Vivendi Universal: "NEW YORK (AP) - After months of negotiations, NBC is getting its prize: Membership in the Big Media Club. NBC, a unit of General Electric Co. (GE), sealed a deal to merge with the entertainment businesses of Vivendi Universal (V), the companies announced Wednesday, creating a media conglomerate in the same class as giants like Viacom Inc. (VIA) and Walt Disney Co. The new company, to be called NBC Universal, will have a leading broadcast network, the Universal movie and television studios, 14 local TV stations, an array of cable networks including USA, CNBC and Bravo, and interests in five theme parks. With $13 billion in annual revenues, NBC Universal will still be small compared to the largest media conglomerates like AOL Time Warner Inc., which had revenues of $41 billion in revenues last year or Walt Disney Co.'s $25 billion. But the deal gives NBC something it has long desired: more clout with competitors, audiences and advertisers." For the complete article, be sure to visit the following link.
