Disney closing in on Fox takeover deal

Yesterday, we reported that Fox is back in talks with Disney to sell most of their company.

The Twenty-First Century Fox Studios flag flies over the company building in Los Angeles, California U.S. November 6, 2017.

Earlier this month it was revealed that The Walt Disney Company had held talks with 21st Century Fox about acquiring a number of its assets, including its movie studio division 20th Century Fox, TV channels FX and National Geographic, Fox's TV production assets, and its stake in global broadcasters such as Sky and Star.

However, no deal between Disney and Fox is imminent and several issues have yet to be fully negotiated, the sources said.

Disney joins companies including Comcast looking to buy a piece of the Murdoch family's empire. Comcast shares were down 0.9 percent. The talks don't include Fox News, the Fox broadcast network or the Fox Sports 1 channel.

Disney could also take hold of Fox's 30% stake in Hulu, giving Disney a controlling interest in the streaming platform-Comcast/NBCUniversal owns 30% and Time Warner owns 10% of Hulu. The Burbank entertainment conglomerate is interested in acquiring Fox's film and television studio, a number of cable television networks, its 39% stake in United Kingdom satellite television provider Sky and India's Star TV, as well as its 30% share of the Hulu streaming service.

Those assets would offer the opportunity for both Comcast and Disney to broaden their global distribution footprint.
