For Disney, the clock is ticking on finding a buyer for the RSNs, which the company has to sell as part of conditions placed on its Fox acquisition by the Justice Department. The streamlined Fox, which includes FOX Business, Fox News and Fox Sports, could also emerge as a bidder when second-round bids are submitted later this year.
CNBC said it was unable to learn the amount of the bids. The Yankees themselves "are moving forward with plans to buy back the YES Network", Bloomberg reported last week.
Buying the RSNs could also put Amazon into some contentious negotiations with Comcast and other cable TV companies. Earlier this year, Amazon and the NFL signed a new two-year streaming rights deal for Thursday Night Football. The Yankees network was blacked out on Comcast during the 2016 season due to a money dispute, for example.
Disney hasn't quite completed its purchase of Fox properties, as it still needs approval from regulators in a few countries. "Today's settlement will ensure that sports programming competition is preserved in the local markets where Disney and FOX compete for cable and satellite distribution".
In June, Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar said Disney's agreement to sell off the RSNs could generate around $19 billion to $20 billion in value (assuming a 10x EBITDA multiple off approximately $2 billion EBITDA).
