The deal involves the stake in BskyB but not F*x News.

Still, with Disney now holding the largest stake in BskyB, maybe they could rename Sky News to Disney news. It would certainly be more fitting for Kay Burley to front.

I wasn't aware 21CF owned both Amstrad and Endemol Shine...?
I can't exactly remember when, but BskyB bought Amstrad a few years ago mainly to bring the production of Sky receivers in-house. Before that various different electronics companies manufactured receivers for Sky's digital service.

They certainly didn't buy Amstrad to focus on flogging several warehouses full of unsold em@ilers.

That seems to be happening on eBay.

Elsewhere someone said Sky News was also exempt from the Disney deal - is that correct?

Certainly, with Disney's added financial might. And maybe a Mickey Mouse Cup could become a thing of reality, should they wish to foray further into football?!

I doubt Disney wanted Murdoch's newspapers but he may have wished to have kept them not just for sentimental reasons but ego and power to sustain his influence. Now he has a multi-billion Dollar war chest to keep the Sun, Times and whatever other shit he owns afloat until the end of time.
