Disney And Fox Deal Reportedly Close, Could Be Announced Next Week

It would be wrong to comment on market speculation. The extent [to which] we change the business as we have over the last number of years- changing the shape of the business is always going to look at what is going to create the most value to all of our shareholders.

But, in addition to the 20th Century Fox and Fox Searchlight film studios (both owned by 21st Century Fox), Disney could potentially add the following to its assets: FX and National Geographic-branded networks; feature animation producer Blue Sky Studios; reality show production company Endemol Shine Group; and worldwide broadcasters like Asia's Star TV (which has 58 channels in India alone) and pan-European broadcaster Sky (in which Fox owns a 39% share).

Such an agreement, which would acquire the approval of federal regulators, would include 20th Century Fox film studio, 20th Century Fox Television, FX Networks, and a majority stake in the streaming service Hulu.

Fox would keep its news and business news operations as well as broadcast network and Fox Sports, CNBC added.
