The commission found that combining Disney and Fox’s film studios would not present a problem, as they will still face competition from other major studios, including Sony, Universal, and Warner Bros.
In terms of TV, however, the commission believed that combining the two companies would eliminate competition between their respective “factual channels,” a regional term for documentaries and similar programs. For this reason, the conditions require Disney to divest its interest in the History, H2, Crime & Investigation, Blaze, and Lifetime channels in the European Economic Area (EEA) to avoid harming competition. A+E Television, a joint venture between Disney and Hearst, currently runs those channels.
