And don't miss Chris Hughes on what Fox/Disney means for Sky: "The situation is highly unusual. On Thursday, Rupert Murdoch's Fox agreed to sell most of its business to Disney. So having made a takeover bid for Sky, Murdoch is now breaking up his film and television empire before the first acquisition is completed. The Disney-Fox deal won't void Fox's obligation to press on with its Sky offer, should U.K. regulators approve the takeover. They are due to rule in March, long before the Disney-Fox deal would complete. But Disney's intervention does create alternative scenarios that Sky's deputy chairman, Martin Gilbert, must weigh carefully."
