DirecTV/Disney deal adds channels & expands TV Everywhere

directv-logo-300pxA new deal between DirecTV and Disney will renew and expand programming available to subscribers, including the addition of Fusion, Longhorn Network, ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Buzzer Beater, ESPN3, and SEC Network + channels. In their press release, DirecTV didn’t mention whether or not any of the new channels will be launch in HD, but we’ll follow up once we have confirmation.

The new agreement will also expand the amount of Disney content available to watch everywhere, including live channels, through WATCH-authenticated services on TVs, PCs, smartphones, tablets, and gaming consoles. Those services include WatchESPN, WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney XD, WATCH Disney Junior, WATCH ABC Family and WATCH ABC.

In addition, on-demand content was renewed and expanded in the deal, giving customers access to ABC On Demand, ABC Family On Demand, and the Disney lineup of access to Disney Channel On Demand, Disney Junior On Demand, and Disney XD On Demand.

ESPN Deportes and ESPN Films will be new additions to the on-demand library, and ESPN Classic will be brought back to the service.

  1. This would be great news if anything were to happen! We are now into February and are missing ALL of our favorite BB games that are streaming on ESPN3 with no word on when it will be available.
