By 1988, the company had bought an additional 11 television stations for $220 million. In 1992, the company split and began to trade publicly. In 1995, Barry Diller gained control of Silver King, in a deal backed by Liberty Mutual. Diller planned to use the company as a way to create a new broadcasting network. However, the company took a different path and began to acquire many companies- turning it into one of the leading media and entertainment companies.
