Time Warner Inc. and CanWest Global Communications Corp. — Canada’s biggest private TV broadcaster — are close to buying a 49% stake in Germany’s struggling Vox TV channel. Bertelsmann AG, the German media group that controls Vox, said only that it was in intensive negotiations with a group of investors. A Vox source said, “The decision about CanWest and Time Warner will be made next week at the earliest.” Start-up losses totaled 330 million German marks ($ 194 million) last year, exceeding initial forecasts by more than 50 million marks ($ 29.45 million). Vox expects to break even in 1997.
