The European Commission approved the agreement between Walt Disney's theme park operator and the 21st Century Fox TV company, led by Rupert Murdoch.
In the meantime, the approval of a number of commitments undertaken by the companies was approved. In particular, Disney has pledged to sell a documentary and popular package of science channels in Europe, including the Historic Channel, the Life and Crime and Investigation Crimes and the Investigation Channel.

As a result of this agreement, Disney will get franchise rights, including a film and television studio Fox, FX and cable channels including National Georgaphic, as well as X-Men, Avatar and The Simpsons.
