While Dish Network is baffled by some problems with other networks they are dealing with, it’s the exact opposite of what is going on with its main rival DIRECTV. The American direct broadcast satellite service provider and broadcaster DIRECTV is having a smooth sailing as it just announced that it just pulled out a huge, multiple-year deal with powerhouse Disney to offer subscribers with not just an access to Disney Channel and ABC but also with ESPN contents on any mobile devices that support the web.
Dan York, the Chief Content Officer for DIRECTV has said that the new deal will showcase DIRECTV’s unrivaled content offering as it raise user experience to a new level. The agreement will certainly allow the two companies to grow together in the near feature and provide DIRECTV customers an assortment of in-home and out-of-home viewing choices to get the most of their ESPN, Disney, and ABC contents.
York has stated that his company is excited about his company’s new partnership with Disney in shaping up content consumption in the future and the same with the limitless possibilities ahead.
Disney is equally happy with the agreement and has talked about their past portfolio in collaborating with their high-profile distribution partners.
The DIRECTV customers are winners on this new deal as they will continue to enjoy the great contents they are presently getting but they will not be able to access it on digital formats via authenticated WATCH products and get new services such as Fusion, Longhorn Network, ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Buzzer Beater, and ESPN3 on television as part of their subscription.
