Disney plans to buy 21st Century Fox for $52 billion. The deal would give Disney access to a giant pool of content, just in time for the "Magic Kingdom" to take on Netflix and Amazon in the streaming industry.
Rob Marvin, Associate Features Editor at PCMag, explains what the Disney-21st Century Fox deal could mean for the digital media landscape. He says Netflix is too big to fail, but this deal would give Disney a major advantage in the streaming space.
ESPN also stands to benefit from the deal. If the deal goes through, Disney would then own Fox Sports and its various subsidiaries. Disney is planning on launching a new streaming service specifically focused on sports. ESPN Plus is supposed to launch in 2018.
