Disney acquiring Fox draws attention to sports media economic landscape

Disney has always been a renowned media entertainment conglomerate, and they are only aiming to build bridges to other parts of the industry. Disney is trying to gain governmental approval to acquire FOX in a $52.4 billion deal, bolstering the amount of sports content they produce, Kim Chipman reported on Bloomberg Law.

Along with the additional sports content, Disney will also have blockbuster content to boot in this acquisition.

“Adding Fox films like Logan and Boss Baby to Disney blockbusters Beauty and the Beast and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would give the combined company over $3 billion in gross box office revenue this year. Alone, Disney’s Buena Vista raked in $1.8 billion, while Fox totaled $1.3 billion so far this year.”

Ultimately, challenging the likes of Netflix and Amazon’s streaming services will need more than bold purchases in existing markets. The only way to remain relevant in such a fast paced media entertainment industry is to be on the onset of innovation. Disney has the capital, resources, and infrastructure to do it, but all they need is the innovators with good ideas.

I wonder what the cartoonists at Disney would think about DOodle the NEWS? 🤔🤔

Stephen Curry offers a new MasterClass training course

Two-time NBA Champion Stephen Curry has always loved basketball, even as a kid watching his father Dell Curry play professionally. No one of the best players in the current NBA, Curry feels it is his time to give back to the culture of basketball, providing fans with the ultimate experience to get into the mind of the back-to-back NBA regular season MVP.

“If I think about where I was when I was 13, if I had access to this type of curriculum, I would have been a much better player faster,” Curry told ESPN. “It took me a while to learn how to practice and do the drills the right way. I want people to see how I invest in my game, how I train, what I do in my workouts and what’s my mental approach.”

“For me, it’s a cool learning process because I actually get to articulate a lot of the things that are pretty natural to me, but it might not be natural to others,” Curry continued. “It came together really nicely. The visuals and the production are unbelievable. It allows me to explain all the things that I do to get better.
