Google has failed to reach an agreement that would allow it to continue offering YouTube TV subscribers access to Disney channels. The tech giant warned customers a few days ago that Disney channels, including ABC, ESPN and FX, could disappear before midnight on December 17 if it doesn’t come to terms with transportation fees. It was then optimistic that he could achieve the desired result. But now Google has told customers that the companies were unable to reach an agreement before their existing one expired despite negotiations for several months.
The company said the talks had failed despite all its efforts, but would “continue talks with Disney to push for [viewers’] in the name, ”Disney said The Streamable in a statement with which YouTube TV “refused to reach a fair deal [the company] based on market terms and conditions. ”
The company added: “As a result, their subscribers have lost access to our portfolio of unrivaled networks, including live sports and news, plus children’s, family and general entertainment programs from ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, Freeform, FX and National Geographic channels. We are ready to reach a fair agreement with Google as soon as possible to reduce inconvenience to YouTube TV viewers by rebuilding our networks. We hope that Google will join us in this effort. “
Here is a list of Disney-owned channels that are no longer available on YouTube TV:
Google has lowered the price of YouTube TV by $ 15 per month (from $ 65 to $ 50 for the Basic level) while Disney channels are not available on the platform. For now, viewers are advised to sign up for the Disney Bundle for $ 14 a month if they want to continue accessing channels removed from YouTube TV.
