Comcast executives had a basic theme for investors, during a call that followed the company's $65 billion bid for 21st Century Fox's entertainment assets: Confidence.

Confidence that regulators will approve the deal. Confidence that Comcast shareholders will like the deal. And confidence that the deal will help it expand internationally and compete with streaming giants like Netflix.
