Disney reportedly in talks to buy 21st Century Fox

21st Century Fox Disney

CNBC reports 21st Century Fox has been holding talks to sell most of the company to Walt Disney Co., but that Disney would not purchase all of Fox.

A deal would exclude Fox Broadcast Network because Disney could not own two broadcast networks, the report said.

If Disney and Fox come to a deal, though, it would gather most of Marvel's Hollywood heroes under one roof. The company is said to believe that a more tightly focused group of properties around news and sports could compete more effectively in the current marketplace.

"At the end of the match I went to shake the hand [of] the referee and the linesman and then my players", he added. Victory means the Blues maintain the nine-point gap to Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Disney was interested in buying 21st Century Fox's movie studio, TV production assets, entertainment channels such as FX and National Geographic, and some worldwide assets such as BSkyB. If a deal were to be worked out, Disney would also take control of Fox's TV production wing as well as worldwide assets.

SuperHeroHype will keep you up to date on any new movement on this potentially momentous deal! Both companies aren't in talks but could resume them, according to the report.

For Disney, buying up Fox's film and TV production assets along with its cable networks would give the company added scale and content as it prepares to launch its own branded streaming service in 2019. It also wouldn't buy Fox's sports programming properties because combining them with ESPN could present antitrust issues. The Murdochs would retain its sports and news properties, as well as its more than 100 local broadcasting affiliates.

It is not known if Murdoch, who is now the Executive Co-Chairman at 21st Century Fox, wpould maintain a role inside the company or if he would take some time off to celebrate being newly Wednesday for the third time to supermodel wife Jerry Hall.

Fox's shares rose 5.8 per cent to $26.40 USA in afternoon trading, after being halted in the morning when the report came out.
