After several more odd trades (including selling Universal TV and the Creator/USANetwork to Barry Diller, then turning around and buying them back a few years later), one of which was with the Seagram conglomerate based in UsefulNotes/{{Montreal}} (who in turn merged them with the remnants of Creator/PolygramFilmedEntertainment), Universal ended up in the hands of French conglomerate Vivendi SA; during their period of ownership they frequently co-produced movies with another Vivendi-owned firm, [=StudioCanal=] (operated by the Canal+ TV network). Eventually, in an effort to stem financial debt, Vivendi sold 80% stock in the studios, theme parks, cable networks (USA, [[Creator/{{Syfy}} Sci Fi Channel]] and the now-defunct Trio) and Universal TV to General Electric in 2004, where they were combined with the Creator/{{NBC}} properties to form NBC Universal, which GE sold more than half of their stock (51%) in 2011 to cable giant [=Comcast=], after purchasing Vivendi's remaining stock (20%). Comcast acquired GE's shares in [=NBCUniversal=] (note the removal of the space) in 2013, thus allowing GE to focus more on its industrial and financial businesses and officially making Comcast a media company. Universal Music Group is still owned by Vivendi; Universal Interactive has since been absorbed into Vivendi-owned Creator/{{Activision}}.

Most movies produced during this era didn't perform well or turned a small profit. Eventually, in an effort to stem financial debt, Vivendi sold 80% stock in the studios, theme parks, cable networks (USA, [[Creator/{{Syfy}} Sci Fi Channel]] and the now-defunct Trio) and Universal TV to General Electric in 2004, where they were combined with the Creator/{{NBC}} properties to form NBC Universal, which GE sold more than half of their stock (51%) in 2011 to cable giant [=Comcast=], after purchasing Vivendi's remaining stock (20%).
