As one of the biggest YouTube multi-channel networks, Fullscreen has been sparking acquisition rumours ever since Disney agreed to buy its rival Maker Studios in a deal that could reach $950m. The latest report on Fullscreen claims that it’s about to sell a majority stake to Otter Media, an investment vehicle co-owned by telco AT&T and investor The Chernin Group.
