Comcast (CMCSA) is set to report Q4 earnings before the market opens on Wednesday, February 13, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Comcast is a provider of entertainment, information, and communications products that operates the NBC family of networks, Universal Pictures and provides cable, internet, and voice services... EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 53c on revenue of $16B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 46c-57c on revenue of $15.64B-$16.88B... LAST QUARTER: Comcast reported Q3 EPS ex-items of 46c, against estimates for 46c, on revenue of $16.5B, against estimates for $16.08B. Last month, the company announced that NBC was the most viewed network in primetime among ABC (DIS), CBS (CBS), Fox (NWSA) and NBC for the 15-week period ended January 6, with an average 3.1 rating. Earlier today, Comcast and News Corp announced an agreement for a new distribution pact to bring Fox content to Comcast Xfinity TV customers across a variety of devices...

Starz (STRZA) may struggle to sell itself, according to the Wall Street Journal citing challenges facing standalone media companies. The publication says that the standalone networks -- Starz, AMC Networks (AMCX) and Scripps Networks (SNI) -- "lack the heft" of larger peers in negotiations regarding affiliate deals, and look "increasingly vulnerable" now that Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), DirecTV (DTV) and AT&T (T) are joining forces.
