Talks between Disney and Fox about Disney buying most Fox properties other than News/Sports

Interesting development:

At any rate, this is far from “Fox is buying back its RSNs” at this point. The reporting here is just that Fox executives are discussing it, and executives discuss a lot of things. And the piece includes that “there’s no guarantee Fox will proceed to make a bid or that it would be successful.” And this would be a rather dramatic course change from Fox’s shift to focusing on a narrower array of properties, which is what prompted the sale of many of their assets to Disney in the first place. But it’s definitely interesting that Fox executives are talking about it, and that one entrant in the race for these RSNs might be their former owner.
