That component of the deal would seem to contradict Disney's push to lessen its reliance on traditional television, a business built on third-party cable subscriptions that is now in decline as people turn to streaming services for home entertainment. That is closing the gap on Disney, which spent $13.5 billion on content, half of that on sports, in the latest fiscal year, according to analysts.

"In the relentless drive to eliminate competition, big business has an insatiable appetite for consolidation".

Trump has been less enthusiastic about mergers of companies that own news outlets of which he has been critical. Fox has been cornering the market on most of these-buying out network minority shareholders, which in many cases included professional sports teams themselves-and slapping "Fox" onto the names of networks previously known as SportsTime Ohio or Sun Sports. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post, which Trump has criticized. With its potential acquisition of 21st Century Fox, Disney would effectively be destroying one of the six major Hollywood film studios, something that's sure to draw the attention of antitrust regulators.

Now almost two decades later, Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox has agreed to sell its entertainment businesses to Walt Disney in a groundbreaking $68.3 billion deal. The younger Murdoch is likely to step away from the remains of Fox when the transaction closes.

What will be the box-office threshold for Disney to consider that movie a hit, thus warranting a sequel?
