The Disney/FOX deal was the hot topic during Fox’s Thursday session at the Television Critics Association tour. The proposed acquisition of certain Fox assets by Disney is good news for independent studios, like Warner Bros. Television and Sony Television, said Fox chairman Gary Newman.

As for how Disney picking up much of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets will affect the remaining television divisions, “It’s business as usual for the next 12-18 months,” said Newman.
