Dish Network/Sling dispute with Disney

<< < (3/7) > >>

bing101:
Expect Disney to come out and hype up their TV apps bundles with DIsney+, ESPN+ and Hulu while they are in dispute with Dish and Sling. Yes this will affect people without TV's that get a wifi signal. But for the rest of us we see this at play here.

ZLoth:
ESPN, Disney, and other networks have returned to Dish and Sling TV

Rate increase coming in 3... 2... 1...

- Those who wish of ďa la carteĒ TV channels should be very careful what they wish for, as they just might get it.  A la carte is totally anti-consumer.  The bundle protects the consumer and makes the 1000s of off-beat niche channels available.  Without it, most would not ever have existed. 

- ESPN a la carte, according to most reports would need about $50/month to break even.  Most people donít watch sports, at least not enough to pay for them.  Add in all the other sports channels and you are looking at $100/month, just for sports.

- I really donít know who Dish is really for today.  It is grossly inferior to DirecTV and even to some cable companies.  All these disputes, missing channels.  If you just want TV as background noise, just watch Pluto, which is free.

Streaming one's local station for CBS is possible with Paramount+.  I don't recall if the same is true with NBC and Peacock or not.  Disney has chosen not to do the same with ABC and FOX.  PBS actually allows such streaming for free online.  The CW is co-owned by two companies, which complicates things.

The cable business model of yesteryear is now the streaming model of now.  Thinking the middle man will be eliminated is quixotic.

But streaming allows companies to market their channels directly. We already have Disney+ and ESPN+. Disney could easily package their channels with one or both. Comcast could market their channels with Peacock. Paramount could market their channels with Paramount+. The only major TV company that doesn't have its own streaming platform right now is FOX.

While FOX doesn't have the overarching streaming app like Peacock and Paramount+ as of yet, it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to put FOX's current entertainment programming onto Tubi. Unfortunately, FOX Nation is the best one's going to get for the next few years as far as a FOX News live streaming app, (we can thank CNN+ for doing this damage) and FOX Sports has somewhat the same issue with putting its premium sports product on live streaming that ESPN does.

The FOX entertainment division is owned by Disney, so wouldn't that make Hulu/Disney+ the streaming apps for FOX just like they are for ABC?

At least NBC and Telemundo affiliates owned by Comcast inc would stream on Peacock app like KNBC, KVEA Los Angeles, KNTV /KSTS San Jose.
CBS and CW affiliates owned by Paramount inc would stream on Paramount+ and the CBS News app.

Does that mean that 4 out of 5 cable subscribers don't watch ESPN?
