The acquisition of MCA Inc. by Capital Cities/ABC took place on February 10, 1995. Aside from the main Universal film and television studios, the acquisition included all MCA companies, including its record division (MCA Records), and Sega, which MCA had acquired in 1992. While MCA owned a number of television stations, but didn't have any networks, and Capital Cities owned the American Broadcasting Company (ABC), both ABC and Universal formed a joint venture known as ABC/Universal. This acquisition also returned the ABC Records catalogue to ABC/Universal, as ABC sold its original record division to MCA, in 1979.
