Disney Disney's name is Disney-ABC. Not Disney/EPSN.
And everyone knew that they wouldn't have any better TV deals. The same as Apple with AppleTV. Nothing new. Time to move on.

said by 25139889:Disney and ESPN are the primary channels people are after. I would be extremely surprised if anyone subscribes or doesn't subscribe due to the presence of ABC Family or SoapNet, the only two other assets that would be under the control of Disney-ABC besides the missing Disney and ESPN channels. The local ABC affiliate is already signed, so that would include any regular OTA ABC broadcasts including ABC News and ABC Daytime.

if they add ESPN that is at least another $5 a month/sub. If what I have read is correct, ESPN is one of the most costly channels for the MSO business to deliver.

I don't watch any sports so would rather it be an option. And if someone is only into football, they can subscribe just during NFL season.

Re: Disney ABC Family is in that deal that Disney-ABC has to sign off on. There are more channels than just Disney and ESPN that are part of them.
And my point is the "article" is wrong. the company is Disney-ABC.

Re: Disney and without ESPN they will lose the other Disney-ABC channels that are national.

Not really since you have to sign a 2 year contract. Doubt they will let you switch during it.
