Last week in media: NENT wins on Telenor tie-up, Twitter down on Q3 report, Verizon promotes Disney+, Sony's PS Vue for sale

Monday 28 October 2019 | 07:00 CET | News
It was a busy week in media, but the Telecompaper Global Media stock index nonetheless closed week 43 nearly unchanged (+0.1%). There was one big winner (NENT Group) and one big loser (Twitter). ProSieben attracted a new large shareholder, Walt Disney closed a major distribution agreement with Verizon and the NENT group teamed up with Telenor. Year-to-date, Snap still leads our index with a more than 150 percent gain. ComScore did well last week (+7.7%), but is still 86 percent below its closing price at the end of 2018.
