Top AT&T story from CNBC: AT&T nears deal with TPG to sell large minority stake in DirecTV, U-verse at $15 billion valuation

From CNBC:

AT&T is nearing a deal to sell a substantial minority stake in its DirecTV, AT&T TV Now and U-Verse business to private-equity firm TPG, according to people familiar with the matter.

A deal could be announced as soon as this week, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.

The deal will value the AT&T businesses around at $15 billion. AT&T acquired DirecTV in 2015 for $48.5 billion ($67 billion with debt).

AT&T has moved away from traditional pay-TV in the past several years as it has centered its media strategy around HBO Max. DirecTV, U-Verse and AT&T TV Now are based around a linear TV business of broadcast and cable networks that is losing millions of subscribers each year.
