The internet giant is considering a sale of the DirecTV and Spectrum brands, sources familiar with the matter said.
DirectTV and the Spectrum brands are owned by Charter Communications.
Comcast said on Friday that it was not ready to comment on a sale.
Charter Communications declined to comment.
Tesla has been trying to buy DirecTv and Spectrum, both of which are owned and operated by Charter, for about a year.
The two companies have been at loggerheads with each other, and the companies have recently announced they would be working together on a possible merger.
Shares in DirecTSv and DirecFttv were down slightly on Friday after the news broke.
The Direcnet and Spectrum companies are owned or operated by the same parent company, Charter Communications, and are both listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
