Disney and Verizon Come to Programming Agreement

Disney and Verizon Come to Programming Agreement

Disney and Verizon Come to Programming Agreement. The Walt Disney Company and Verizon have been debating over the fate of Disney owned channels being viewed by Verizon Fios customers.

After years of back and forth battling over media content, both companies have agreed to continue allowing Verizon Fios customers to view Disney owned channels. Some well know channels are ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, and other Disney owned channels. It has not been clear what the outcome would be, though both companies seemed optimistic during negotiations. The agreement comes just before the predetermined December 31, 2018 deadline.

Verizon and Disney released a joint statement regarding the agreement on Sunday, December 30, 2018. “Verizon and The Walt Disney Company have reached a broad-based distribution agreement.”

In the statement it was also made clear that more details about the agreement would be released within the following days. If the two could not have reached an agreement before the December 31, 2018 deadline Verizon’s Fios network would have stopped supporting Disney owned channels.

Fios customers can breathe easy knowing they will still be able to view their favorite Disney shows and movies while using their network. Be sure to check back here for any updates.
