Date set for Disney’s Fox acquisition

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

The much-anticipated merger of Fox and Disney – of particular interest to superhero film fans as it will potentially bring the X-Men and Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe – is now set to go ahead on March 20th

Mexican regulators sought pledges to sell off Fox’s regional sports networks, and with that obstacle overcome, other channels including National Geographic and FX will pass to Disney as part of the $71.3billion deal.

What the industry says about US

Tristar Products, UK

As a company, we monitor our sales on daily basis and as such we potentially have to change schedules at a moment’s notice. When working with Global listings this is made easy. Their can-do attitude means we are not hindered by bureaucracy or rigid SLAs – we make the change and they do all the hard work... great service!

Narrative Entertainment, UK

Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the GL help we received during our transition of all our channels from Sony to Narrative. All the work with the Movie & Entertainment channels rebranding to Great! and the numerous EPG Listings we delivered to you around this time were always efficiency produced and distributed and updated across our EPG platforms.
