As 21st Century Fox (FOX) nears the closing of its deal to sell most of its entertainment operations to Walt Disney (DIS), the shape of the remaining Fox is starting to emerge. During its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings call on August 9, Fox’s leadership hinted that live sports and news programming are expected to be the cornerstones of the slimmed-down Fox.

Twitter (TWTR) is looking at ways to add more sports content to its video offerings, the company’s head of US content partnerships, Laura Froelich, said at a recent technology summit hosted by Bloomberg. Twitter is betting on an expanded sports offering to help it grow its video viewership by attracting more cord cutters. While the cord-cutting trend is robbing traditional media companies such as the Walt Disney Company (DIS) of pay-TV customers, the trend is expanding the market for Internet video providers such as Twitter and Amazon (AMZN).

Comcast needed top Disney’s sweetened bid to keep Fox interested in a deal with it.
Disney today announced that ‘Mickey: The True Original Exhibition,’ an interactive art exhibit, will open in New York in honor of the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse. “As Walt said, ‘I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing—that it was all started by a mouse’,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products.
