Disney is the latest media company to take on TV provider Dish this week, with the satellite TV company pulling pretty much all of Disney’s channels.ESPN, FX, Disney Channel, Freeform, and National Geographic, as well as eight ABC affiliates in certain markets – from his service amidst a very expensive spit between the two gredUPS. The stumbling block, of course, is the carriage agreement between the two companies (ie “You give us money, we let you spread our shit and blame people for it‘) which ended at midnight last night with no negotiations for an extension.

As diversity RemarksDish is known to be extremely ready in moments like this just take his network of satellites and go home; the company had a long and messy battle with AMC about a decade ago where all of this company’s channels went dark for an extended period of time while a deal was negotiated. This time, Dish claims Disney is increasing its fee demands by $1 billion to continue promotion; Disney claims it is making a “fair, market-oriented” offer for its various channels.

This isn’t the first time Disney and Dish have made a public appearance fought it out. (pserious, Serve the beef with it Everyone; Disney sued her and been counterclaim from them, a bundle over the years including via Dish’s Hopper DVR device from a few years backwho has applied the possibility of removing that of a transmitter advertising from their Programs where it turns out that advertisers, for some reason do not want it!)

But this is The first time the two companies have taken such a tough line during the streaming era, which we can assume will change the landscape here a little bit. Dish’s ability to run these kinds of low-key games — rest assured, they’ve already issued a press release blaming Disney for treating their customers so shabbily — was always based on having a huge subscriber base, too that Disney would like access to. But as a cord Cutting and streaming are becoming increasingly important, the question is how much Disney actually needs this carriage. Surely that reported billion-dollar premium suggests that the media giant no longer considers Dish to be one of the only games in town; We’ll have to wait and see how negotiations between the two companies play out (and whether Dish customers can cope with the blackout by simply switching to Disney and ESPN+ to meet their content needs.)
