For its part, Disney DIS is adding even more prime entertainment assets to an already swollen portfolio as it battles upstart streaming services that have undercut the traditional cable subscription model. In addition to 21st Century Fox's movie studio and regional sports networks, Disney is buying cable channels FX and National Geographic.
Prior to the deal closing, 21st Century Fox FOX will separate the Fox broadcasting network, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, and some national sports networks into a new company that will be spun off to its shareholders.

Disney, which counts ESPN among its crown jewels, has suffered as consumers switch off their TVs and spend more hours watching streaming services such as Netflix NFLX that are distributed directly to consumers.
The deal allows Disney to expand its content, especially for streaming services.
In addition to a majority stake in Hulu that it will have once the deal closes, Disney is preparing to launch two separate streaming services, one for sports and another focusing on entertainment.
And it is pulling its content from Netflix in preparation for the launch. Adding Fox's television and movie studios and the content they own means adding to the stable of must-watch content it can offer directly to consumers -- and that streaming competitors can not.

The deal will needs to undergo regulatory review and will likely take at least a year to close. News of a possible deal first came to light in early November when CNBC reported that Disney had approached 21 Century Fox about a deal to acquire the movie and television assets.
That led to other companies, like Comcast, to explore an acquisition as well.
But on Monday Comcast said in statements to media outlets that it "never got the level of engagement needed to make a definitive offer" and was withdrawing from the discussions. As the two companies work to complete the deal and Disney works to integrate its new assets, Bob Iger, who had been expected to retire, will remain as chairman and CEO of Disney through Speaking on Fox Business Thursday morning, Murdoch said he made it a condition of the deal that Iger would stay on.
But in a conference call with investors on Thursday morning, Iger said there are no immediate plans for James Murdoch.
