Does Liberty Want To Sell Starz And Is Comcast A Buyer

Liberty and John Malone love to unlock the value of a company by spinning it off into its own separately traded public company. It has been a strategy that seems to serve them well.  With the decision to spin Starz into a separate company comes speculation that Malone might actually be willing to part with the pay television network.  According to the article in Ad Age, the list of possible acquirers is growing including News Corp, Viacom, Time Warner, Netflix, and Comcast.  But is Liberty really looking to sell this asset and does it make sense for any of these "media giants" to acquire it? At the right price, almost everything can be bought.
