The cable company’s video subscriptions continued to decline, but Comcast still managed to grow revenues nearly 12% last year (profit, however, declined a whopping 48%). The company’s $39 billion bid for British broadcaster Sky, meanwhile, closed last October. Comcast now owns 75% of the European pay-TV giant, which is helping it expand its global footprint. Other big plans are afoot at the Philadelphia-based company: Its NBCUniversal division recently announced it will launch a streaming service early next year, aimed at competing with the likes of Netflix and Amazon.
