Move The Simpsons to ABC? So what was the point of buying the Fox Network in the first place if all its aired content will just be moved to Disney's own network anyway?


Disney bought most of 20th Century Fox's assets -- but not the whole thing. Fox corporation still owns their broadcast network, Fox News, Fox Business and regional sports networks. 


Everything else -- film and TV production, back catalogue, facilities like Fox Studios Australia -- are Disney's now.

Does Paramount still have any stake in the Marvel films it distributed?




Paramount distributed Marvel's completed films for a 8-10% fee, which made it easier for Disney to buy them out. They did not co-finance them like they did with Titanic. (Otherwise Par would still be involved.)


Yet Paramount still collects 8% of the profits from The Avengers and 9% on Iron Man 3, so their logo isn't going to be wiped from the early MCU films any time soon.
