What Was the Regulatory Condition for Disney to Buy Fox Assets?

Walt Disney (DIS) received US regulatory approval in June 2018 to acquire most of 21st Century Fox’s (FOXA) media and entertainment assets, including Fox’s regional sports networks (or RSN), for $71.3 billion. After the sale of 22 RSNs, the deal would give Disney ownership of Fox’s film and TV studios, cable networks such as FX Networks, Fox Networks Group, stakes in National Geographic Partners, Indian satellite TV group Star India, Hulu, and other key assets.
