Despite Disney passing antitrust approval from United States, Europe, and India, still awaiting approval from the rest of the regulators, critics of Disney's purchase expressed concern of a significant amount of antitrust concerns. The deal is a horizontal merger (i.e., in which a company buys up a corporation that produces the same goods and products) as opposed to a vertical merger (i.e., two companies that operate at separate stages of the production process for a specific finished product), much akin to the integrations of AT&T–Time Warner and Comcast–NBC Universal. As such, horizontal mergers are more disapproved than vertical mergers, as they effect a more tangible reduction in competition. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) states in its own website that "The greatest antitrust concern arises with proposed mergers between direct competitors (horizontal mergers)."

On February 13, 2018, television producer Ryan Murphy, a long-time collaborator of 20th Century Fox Television, signed a five-year $300 million agreement with Netflix, a move considered to be a big blow to Fox and Disney. Murphy cited the Disney–Fox deal as the main reason for departure, arguing that his freedom under Disney might be severely limited in creating new, risk-taking content.

Love FOX, but the app is awful. In between each video clip there is a 30 second commercial, The same commercial over and over and over and over again - in between each segment. The app cuts the end of each video segment off, sometimes before they're done talking. As I type this, I'm listening to the same commercial AGAIN. It's enough to drive me batty. Especially because I can't stand the commercial. In addition, the app buffers and locks up a lot. Especially if I try to scroll through and skip segments it locks up. I actually haven't been able to accomplish scrolling through and choosing another segment. Once I restarted the app and was left with no other option but to watch all the video clips from the beginning. I didn't want to do that, so I never got to see the video clips at the end. Oh, I get to listen to the same commercial again.
There are donner/kebab places in centre of town, not halal. There is an Indian restaurant called Indus, not halal. Hardly any black or Asian people and you will get stared at sometimes/places.

AT&T’s decisive court victory — the judge said the merger could move forward without requiring the telecommunications giant or Time Warner to divest any assets — creates a blueprint for Comcast. Both AT&T and Comcast are distributors seeking to buy content companies that they do not directly compete with, in what is known as a vertical acquisition. Comcast, for example, already pays Fox for the right to carry its channels like FX and Fox News.
Viacom CEO Bob Bakish has stated that the Disney-Fox deal provides a "very real opportunity" to hire new executive and creative talent at Paramount and other studios amid the "dislocation associated with change of ownership" at Disney and Fox. Bakish also suggested that Viacom and other companies can provide new content for streaming services such as Netflix once Disney removes their content from the service in 2019.
A&E Networks Europe (50% owned by Disney) – On November 6, 2018, the European Commission ruled that Disney must sell the European factual channels of A&E, including History, H2, Crime & Investigation, Blaze and Lifetime.

What to order: Five dollars can't even buy you a full entree and a side, let alone an entire panda (we tried), so we opted for the super-filling Beijing Beef ($4.45) on its own, along with a regular soda ($1.89). The employee serving tried to give us a side for no cost, but we couldn't accept because there's an off chance that you will end up at a different Panda Express with a different employee who is not cool like that. At least the fortune cookie's free!
