Good news for New York-area pay TV customers, The Walt Disney Company and Altice USA have reached a last minute deal. This new agreement will allow Disney owned channels like ESPN and ABC to continue to be viewed across millions of homes.
We previously reported how Altice (the fourth-largest U.S. cable operator) and Disney were in a heated dispute over how much Altice would pay to continue carrying Disney-owned channels like ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, Freeform, Disney Channel and Disney XD.
“We have reached an agreement in principle and have extended the deadline accordingly to try and finalize the terms,” a joint statement from the companies said.
An anonymous source familiar with the talks stated that Disney secured fee increases for ESPN, local affiliate WABC and other major networks. These negotiations were private and the amount of the increases have not been disclosed.
