21st Century Foxi

21st Century Fox was an American mass media corporation with assets including 20th Century Fox, FX Networks, and National Geographic Partners. It was hived off from Rupert Murdoch's News Corp in 2013, allowing investors to value the cable, movie and pay TV investments more highly than the traditional news media assets. In 2017, most of its assets - including the rights to TV series such as The Simpsons and film franchises including the X-Men and Fantastic Four superhero IPs - were acquired by Disney, with the remainder, consisting of the Fox and MyNetworkTV networks, and Fox's national broadcasting, TV stations, news and sports operations, being separated into Fox Corporation.
