We don't know exactly which, but one of them is Fox networks in the US, which Disney will not be allowed to buy as they own ABC. The general thrust of the deal, however, is that Murdoch wants to sell off entertainment assets to double down on news and sports.

I heard that Sky is part of the deal. That includes a lot of sport broadcast in Europe, they've had a chokehold on Premier League rights since it was created.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

It is official. Sky is part of the deal, and so is the part of Hulu that Fox owns. Disney buys all of 21st Century except Fox News, Fox networks, and some national sports channels.

I'm unclear on that too. I keep hearing they are getting the rights to TV shows but not the broadcast network. Are they getting everything but the broadcast network license or something? Because they already have one?
I'm also wondering if they are prohibited fro taking the sports due to the structure of some of the rights deals not being allowed to go to the same broadcaster maybe? They used to do that sometimes.

Yes, Disney buys Simpsons and they buy the cable channels. They can't buy the television station network, because then the FTC will stop the whole thing. Not sure if Fox plans to sell it to someone else. Fox could continue to run the stations using content that they have licensed from Disney or from other studios, or they might decide to sell them to someone else.

And I think those licenses are “free”. The parent company gets its money from selling national ads. They then leave blank spots during the commercial breaks which local stations fill up with their own ads.

That’s the radio model at least.

If Fox will no longer produce something like Simpsons, they will have to pay for it to the content producer - Disney in this case, if the deal closes. The split between Fox and its franchise owners I think works something like you said.

I’m assuming Disney won’t change the model.
