    If they do not approve or deny, then Disney/Fox merged company won't be able to do business in China until approval is granted

    Doubt it because China owns a majority of SHDL.

    hmm, so Disney is the..Minority, in the case of SDL (Even though they are rights holders)?

    I think what's good to see, is how things are seemingly being wanted to be kept on-course, and to keep people who are along the position of power at 21CF & the minor companies along with it. What I'm curious of, is NatGeo.

    Depends how long they keep them on. Companies are notorious using these Execs. as place makers for transitions, and then they mysteriously disappear within a year or so. Disney has a really bad rep in film & tv industry of being very difficult to work for. I wouldn't put too much stock into them keeping these people on for now. They'll probably use them only as long as they need to, and then, poof, they're gone.

    Intellectual Property doesn’t have much protections in China.

    Zero. My son's company won't do business there. As big as the carrot is.

    I think they were getting the China date confused with the original EU one which was on October 19th

    '“Our plate is full; we know what we are doing; we’re pausing the share buyback and focusing on the balance sheet," CEO Brian Roberts says about continental expansion.'

    I think that means a temporary 3-5 year pause to lower debt load by $20-30 billion. I'd be surprised if it meant any sort of longer pause than that; Sky is strong in the UK but needs further asset purchases (read: cable units) in Germany, Austria, Italy, and Spain to stabilize their continental operations.

    Wise move on Comcast part. Consolidate, learn the market inside & out, & get Sky where they want it to be....and then, if the situation warrants, pursue whatever looks right for the market.
