RE: Disney could acquire all regional Fox networks
Here's another angle as it pertains to college content...

One of the primary reasons the PAC set their network up the way they did was to be able to provide regional content across the footprint. They kind of screwed it up, but it's not a totally worthless endeavor.

If FOX is in 'sell' mode and ESPN is in 'buy' mode then it could very well work out something like this:

ESPN buys the PAC Networks and trims it down to one national channel that is much more likely to be successful. If ESPN uses this RSN system to showcase all those minor sports from the PAC locally then the PAC gets the best of both worlds. I could very easily see the PAC selling their entire rights package to ESPN and forgetting FOX.

PAC Networks are wholly owned by PAC. Convincing the PAC schools to sell a percentage to ESPN or Fox to help get carriage is possible as a few University Presidents are not happy they are falling behind financially other conference network earnings.

I still think putting the PAC under the ESPN umbrella would be its best shot at optimized revenues.
