Delaware corporation ("Fox"), THE NEWS CORPORATION LIMITED ("News Corp" and
collectively with Fox, the "Fox Parties" and together with their respective
subsidiaries and controlled and non-controlled affiliates, the "Fox Group") and
HEALTHEON/WEBMD CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation (the "Company").


                              W I T N E S S E T H:

     WHEREAS, the members of the Fox Group own and operate networks, television
broadcast stations, Non-Standard Television Services and other content creation
and distribution businesses worldwide (the "Fox Distribution Channels"); and

     WHEREAS, the members of the Fox Group own or license the Fox Content which
they use in connection with the development and 'operation of the Fox
Distribution Channels; and

     WHEREAS, pursuant to a Master Strategic Alliance Agreement dated December
6, 1999, by and between The News Corporation Limited, a South Australia,
Australia corporation ("News Corp"), Fox and the Company (the "Strategic
Alliance Agreement"), the Fox Parties desire to license, and cause other members
of the Fox Group to license, to the Company the right to use the Fox Content for
the purpose of adapting the Fox Content for use on the WebMD Sites.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the
agreements and covenants herein set forth and for other good and valuable
consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the
parties do hereby agree as follows:

                                    ARTICLE I

                                   DEFINITIONS

                                    ARTICLE 2

                        CREATION OF LICENSE RELATIONSHIP

         2.1      GRANT OF LICENSE. Except as may be prohibited or otherwise
limited by the terms of any other obligations binding upon the Fox Parties, any
member of the Fox Group or any of the Fox Distribution Channels, other than
obligations that were incurred with the prior primary intent to frustrate the
purpose of this Agreement, and subject to the terms and conditions of this
Agreement, the Fox Parties agree to provide, to cause Controlled Affiliates to
provide, and to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause Non-Controlled
Affiliates to provide, to the Company a non-exclusive license (the "License")
during the term hereof throughout the Territory to:

                  (a) use, copy, translate, display, publish and transmit the
         Fox Content solely for the purpose of developing and operating the
         WebMD Sites; and

                  (b) subject at all times to the obligations and duties of the
         Company contained herein, sublicense only to Operating Companies the
         rights granted hereunder; provided, however, that the Company shall (i)
         obtain Fox's prior written consent to each such sublicense (other than
         with respect to Operating Companies which are directly or indirectly
         majority owned and Controlled by the Company); (ii) obtain from such
         Operating Companies a written instrument approved as to form and
         substance by Fox, pursuant to which each such Operating Company shall
         agree to be bound and comply with the terms of this Agreement and (iii)
         at all times remain fully liable for the actions of its Operating
         Companies. Operating Companies with respect to which the foregoing
         conditions have been satisfied shall hereinafter be referred to as
         "Sublicensees." The Sublicensees shall be prohibited from granting any
         further sublicenses of the rights granted hereunder to any other Person
         without the express prior written approval of Fox. Fox agrees that any
         consent or approval required by it under this Section 2.1(b) will not
         be unreasonably denied or delayed and that Fox will cooperate with the
         Company in completing any approval process required hereunder in a
         reasonably expeditious manner given the facts and circumstances
         pertaining to such approval.

                  As used herein, "Controlled Affiliates" means any corporation
         or other entity more than 50% of whose outstanding voting securities or
         other equity interests are directly or indirectly owned by News Corp;
         "Non-Controlled Affiliates" means any corporation or other entity in
         which News Corp directly or indirectly has a greater than 20% but no
         more than 50% equity interest.

         2.2      SCOPE OF LICENSE; RESTRICTIONS ON USE OF FOX CONTENT.

                  (a) The License granted hereunder is non-exclusive and the
         Company agrees to use the Fox Content in accordance with the terms
         hereof and solely for the purpose of engaging in the Licensed
         Activities. The Company acknowledges that the grant of rights hereunder
         excludes the right to use the Fox Content other than in connection with
         the development or operation of the WebMD Sites. The parties hereto
         agree that the covenants and agreements set forth in this Section
         2.2(a) are in addition to the restrictive covenants set forth in
         Section 10.5 of the Strategic Alliance Agreement. The Company


<PAGE>   6


         acknowledges that any sublicense of the rights granted hereunder shall
         be strictly limited in accordance with the terms hereof.

                  (b) The Company acknowledges and agrees that the scope of the
         License granted hereunder is limited by and is subject to any and all
         other obligations of Fox, any member of the Fox Group or any of the Fox
         Distribution Channels. Accordingly, the Company agrees to conduct the
         activities hereunder in accordance with all such limitations or
         restrictions which may exist of which the Company has received notice.

                  (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this
         Agreement, Fox shall have no obligation whatsoever to license to the
         Company, or to authorize the Company to sublicense any of the rights
         granted hereunder with respect to any particular country unless and
         until Fox shall determine, in the exercise of its reasonable
         discretion, that (i) such country's laws afford adequate protection of
         the Fox's interests in or ownership of Fox Content, the Fox Property
         and the Fox Logos (collectively the "Fox Intellectual Property"), and
         (ii) the use of the Fox Intellectual Property (or any part thereof) in
         such country will not violate any Requirement of Law or expose Fox or
         any of its Affiliates to any unreasonable risk or liability which might
         anise as a result of the use or display of any of the Fox Intellectual
         Property in such country. In its exercise of its reasonable discretion
         under this Section 2.2(c), Fox shall have the night to request from the
         Company or a Sublicensee an opinion of counsel or such other
         information to Fox's reasonable satisfaction opining about or providing
         such other information on a Requirement of Law or such other matters
         relating to the protection of Fox's interests as Fox may request, such
         opinion or information to be obtained at the Company's or such
         Sublicensee's expense. Fox agrees to exercise its rights in the
         preceding sentence in a reasonable manner so as to avoid unnecessary
         delays or interruptions in the business of the Company and the
         Sublicensees.

         2.3      GRANT OF RIGHT IN FOX LOGO

                  (a) Fox Logo. Fox hereby grants the Company a limited,
non-exclusive, royalty-free license to such trademarks, tradenames, service
marks logotypes, or brand identifiers of members of the Fox Group as Fox may
provide to the Company from time to time (collectively, the "Fox Logos") during
the Term of this Agreement. Such license is granted solely in connection with
the Company's rights and obligations under this Agreement. All such uses will be
in compliance with Fox's written trademark guidelines as provided by Fox to the
Company from time to time. The Company will also be allowed to use and reproduce
the Fox Logos for the promotion of the Fox Content, although to the extent such
promotions involve media placements outside of the WebMD Sites, then the Company
will only be allowed to make such uses and reproductions as Fox may approve in
writing in advance of such promotion or promotions.

                  (b) Limitations. The Company agrees that it will not in any
way suggest or imply by the use of the Fox Logos that the WebMD Sites or any of
the products or services affiliated with it, are endorsed or sponsored by or
created in association with Fox except as agreed by Fox. The Company
acknowledges that Fox owns all right, title and interest and to the Fox Logos
and retains all rights with respect thereto. The Company


<PAGE>   7


agrees not to do anything inconsistent with such ownership and all uses of the
Fox Logos will inure to the benefit of and on behalf of Fox. The Company further
agrees that it will not attack or assist others in attacking the title of the
Fox Logos.

                  (c)  No Violation. The Company acknowledges and agrees that:

                       (i)  it will not register any Fox Logo;

                       (ii) it will not knowingly permit any third party to use
                  any Fox Logo unless authorized to do so in writing by Fox in
                  this Agreement or otherwise;

                       (iii) it will not knowingly use or permit the use of any
                  mark, name, or image likely to cause confusion with any Fox
                  Logo other than the Fox Logos themselves unless authorized to
                  do so in writing by Fox; and

                       (iv) all goodwill associated with the Company's use of
                  the Fox Logos will inure to Fox.

                  (d)  Prior Approval. The manner and form of use of the Fox
         Logos will be subject to Fox's prior written approval, which approval
         will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed following its receipt of a
         sample, mock-up or other suitable example which provides a fair
         representation of the proposed use of the Fox Logos concerned and
         indicates the context in which the Fox Logos are to be used. Once a use
         of a Fox Logo is approved for use under certain circumstances, then it
         is agreed that the Company may subsequently make substantially similar
         uses of such Fox Logo under similar circumstances, but only until Fox
         revokes or limits its approval which it may do at its sole discretion.
         The Company will conform to any alteration or revocation of the
         approval as soon as is commercially reasonable.

                      The license granted pursuant to this Section 2.3 may
be terminated by Fox upon a material breach by WebMD, or any Affiliate of WebMD
or any Sublicensee, of any material agreement, covenant or obligation under this
Section 2.3, which breach, if curable, remains uncured for a period of sixty
(60) days following WebMD's receipt of written notice from Fox of the existence
of such breach.

         2.4 NO OTHER RIGHTS GRANTED. Apart from the rights licensed under
Sections 2.1 and 2.3 above, this Agreement does not grant to the Company any
right to engage in any activity other than the Licensed Activities, nor any
ownership right, title, or interest, nor any security interest or other
interest, in any of the Fox Intellectual Property or any proprietary rights
relating to or created from such Fox Intellectual Property or any developments
or enhancements with respect thereto.

                                    ARTICLE 3

                                 THE FOX CONTENT

         3.1      SELECTION, FORMAT, DESIGN AND UPDATING.

                  (a) Fox may from time to time, modify and update the Fox
         Content as such modifications and/or updates are deemed necessary or
         desirable by Fox and the Company shall (to the extent that particular
         Fox Content is used by the Company) use such Fox Content as modified or
         updated.

                  (b) With respect to any content Fox obtains for use on the Fox
         Distribution Channels, Fox shall, at the Company's request, use
         reasonable commercial efforts to secure the approval of third parties
         for the use by the Company of such content in accordance herewith. Fox
         shall not be required to incur any additional cost in securing such
         approval; provided, however, that in the event approval to use such
         content may only be obtained by payment of any fee by Fox, Fox shall
         incur such cost only at the Company's request and the Company shall
         have the obligation to reimburse Fox for such cost.

                  (c) With respect to the Fox Content licensed hereunder, the
         Company shall have the right to determine, in its reasonable
         discretion, the Fox Content it selects to adapt for use on the WebMD
         Sites at any time, and from time to time subject to the other
         provisions hereof; provided, however, that the Company shall clearly
         attribute all Fox Content used on the WebMD Sites to Fox, or a member
         of the Fox Group, as applicable. Except as may be authorized in advance
         in writing by Fox, or for the purpose of adapting the Fox Content for
         use on the WebMD Sites and/or localizing the Fox Content, the Company
         shall have no right to substantively modify in any manner whatsoever,
         any of the Fox Content licensed hereunder. The Fox Content which is
         owned or controlled by a third party shall incorporate such credit
         designated by such third party or Fox and the Company and Sublicensees
         shall preserve all such attributional rights.

         3.2      REMOVAL OF FOX CONTENT. Fox may, for good reason, from time to
time require removal of any Fox Content from the WebMD Sites. If Fox requests
removal of certain Fox content from the WebMD Sites, the Company shall complete
such removal on the earlier of (i) the first commercially practicable date on
which the Company could remove such content or (ii) five business days following
receipt of Fox's request for such removal.

         3.3      OWNERSHIP OF FOX CONTENT; FOX PROPERTY. The members of the Fox
Group shall at all times remain the owner of all right, title and interest in
and to the Fox Content or any parts or derivatives thereof or any variations
thereon. The members of the Fox Group shall own all right, title and interest in
all aspects of the look and feel, images and all other content, regardless of
whether it is capable of trademark, patent, copyright or other intellectual
property law protection, furnished by or on behalf of Fox to the Company or the
Sublicensees and displayed on the WebMD Sites or any parts or derivatives
thereof or any variations thereon collectively, the "Fox Property").


<PAGE>   9
         3.4      OTHER AGREEMENTS.  The Company:


                  (a) agrees to comply with all Requirements of Law in
         connection with the use of the Fox Content;

                  (b) agrees that all rights in and to any of the Fox Content
         not expressly licensed hereunder are reserved to the appropriate member
         of the Fox Group;

                  (c) agrees not to sublicense, assign, transfer, pledge, offer
         as security, or otherwise encumber the Fox Content or any of the rights
         granted hereunder in any way other than as expressly provided in the
         Agreement;

                  (d) agrees not to use any of the Fox Content in any manner or
         for any purpose whatsoever in violation of the terms of this Agreement;

                  (e) acknowledges and agrees that it shall not at any time
         during the Term or thereafter (i) challenge the title or any other
         rights of members of the Fox Group or their respective licensors in or
         to the Fox Content or any of the other Fox Intellectual Property or any
         parts or derivatives thereof or any variations thereon, (ii) contest
         the validity of the copyrights or other proprietary interests in and to
         the Fox Content or any other Fox Intellectual Property held by Fox or
         any third party or (iii) claim any right, title or interest in or to
         the Fox Content or any other Fox Intellectual Property or any parts or
         derivatives thereof or any variation thereon; and

                  (f) agrees to use its best efforts to cause the Sublicensees
         to comply with the terms of this Section 3.4 to the extent this Section
         creates obligations for the Company.

                                    ARTICLE 4

                         REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

         4.1      REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS OF THE COMPANY AND
FOX.

                  (a) Authority of the Company. The Company agrees and
         represents that the Company has the authority to execute, deliver and
         perform its obligations under this Agreement, having obtained all

         in good standing under the laws of the state of its incorporation or

         Group have licensed, and may license, the Fox Content to other parties
         to promote and enhance the goodwill of the Fox Content. The Company
         agrees that in the event Fox determines that the Company's activities
         taken pursuant to this Agreement come into conflict with the interests
         or rights of other licensees, the Company shall in good faith cooperate
         with Fox in order to resolve the conflict and, in the event the
         conflict cannot be resolved, shall take the action requested by Fox as
         long as it is commercially practical to do so.

         7.13 SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement or the
application thereof to any Person or circumstance is held by a court of
competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remaining
provisions hereof, or the application of such provision to Persons or
circumstances other than those as to which it has been held invalid or
unenforceable, shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be
affected, impaired or invalidated thereby; provided that, if any provision
hereof or the application thereof shall be so held to be invalid, void or
unenforceable by a final Judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, then
such court may substitute therefor a suitable and equitable provision in order
to carry out, so far as may be valid and enforceable, the intent and purpose of
the invalid, void or unenforceable provision and if such court shall fail or
decline to do so, the parties shall negotiate in good faith a suitable and
equitable substitute provision. To the extent that any provision shall be
judicially unenforceable in any one or more states of the United States or in
any foreign jurisdiction, such provision shall not be affected with respect to
any other state within the United States or any other foreign jurisdiction, each
provision with respect to each state of the United States or foreign
jurisdiction being construed as several and independent.

threatened breach by it or any Sublicensee or Affiliate of this Agreement will
result in immediate and irremediable damage to the other party and that money
damages alone would be inadequate to compensate such other party. Therefore, in
the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by either of the
parties (or any Sublicensee or Affiliate), the other party may, in addition to
other remedies, immediately obtain and enforce injunctive relief prohibiting the
breach or threatened breach or compelling specific performance.

         7.15 NO PARTNERSHIP, ETC. Nothing contained herein shall be construed
as creating a joint venture, Company, agency, employment relationship or other
enterprise between the parties.

         7.16 CONSTRUCTION. The Company and Fox have participated jointly in the
negotiation and drafting of this Agreement. In the event an ambiguity or
question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed
as if drafted jointly by the Company and Fox and no presumption or burden of
proof shall anise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship
of any of the provisions of this Agreement.

         7.17 DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. The Company hereby acknowledges and
agrees that Fox has made no promises, representations, guarantees or warranties,
of any nature, other than those which may be made expressly in this Agreement.

         7.18 PLURAL. When necessary for appropriate meaning, a plural shall be
deemed to be the singular and singular shall be deemed to be the plural.
