YouTube TV Restores Disney Channels with a Small Discount Update, December 19: The women have pulverized the meat. YouTube TV said on Sunday through Twitter that they had achieved an agreement with Disney and will begin airing Disney Channel programming “previously accessible channels such as ESPN and FX, as well as Disney records, have begun to be restored.
Additionally, your local ABC station will air throughout the day.” Also, the price of YouTube TV will return to $64.99. However, “all affected subscribers will get a one-time $15 discount.” Therefore, you will be paid for the day YouTube TV’s schedule was $15 worse. However, all affected members will still receive a one-time $15 discount.
As always, we appreciate your subscription and will send you an email with further information shortly. — YouTube TV (@YouTubeTV) on Twitter. Following is the beginning of the original narrative. Oh no, the females are arguing once more. After months of fruitless discussions, Disney-owned channels, including ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, Freeform, and National Geographic, have been removed off Google’s YouTube TV.
- Despite our best efforts, we were unable to negotiate an equitable deal before to the expiration of our previous contract, and their channels are no longer available on YouTube TV,” YouTube TV acknowledged in a statement.
- We will reduce our monthly fee by $15, from $64.99 to $49.99, as long as this material is unavailable on our platform.
The streaming service stated that it will continue to campaign on behalf of its clients in an effort to recover the lost content. In the interim, it was mentioned that subscribers should consider purchasing the Disney bundle for restricted access to Disney content (the $13.99/month bundle includes Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu with advertisements).
- Disney made its own statement, alleging that YouTube TV “refused to make a fair contract with us based on market terms and conditions” and that Disney is prepared to “reach an equitable agreement” as soon as possible in order to minimize the disruption to YouTube TV customers.
- What is this all about? Google asserted earlier this week that Disney was asking more costs than “similarly sized services” Disney’s material would only remain if an agreement was struck prior to Friday, December 17 at 11:59 p.m., which is when the previous contract between the two sides was set to expire.
On September 30, a similar time-sensitive deadline was established. The predicted blackout was ultimately postponed and a settlement was made within days. This time, we’ll have to wait and see if a resolution occurs as swiftly — or at all.

Will Disney soon return to YouTube TV?
After a one-day outage, ESPN and the other Disney networks are back on YouTube TV. Sunday, Google and Disney announced an agreement to return Disney’s suite of channels, including ESPN, to YouTube TV. The main price of YouTube TV will revert to $65 per month, but Google will honor the $15 discount it granted users in the form of a one-month credit for the loss of ESPN networks.
- It would be reasonable to question the purpose of Saturday’s interruption if Google and Disney were so close to an agreement, especially given that Google and NBC negotiated a short-term extension when their contract expired a few days early earlier this year.
- A lot of Twitter users threatened to quit their Google membership and switch to (Disney-owned) Hulu in response to Google’s temporary loss of the Disney channels.
In its Sunday statement, Google extended an olive branch to anyone who had initiated the canceling procedure, stating “we’d love to have you back.” Friday night, YouTube TV removed the Disney-owned channels, causing fans of the Lakers-Timberwolves game on ESPN and an FCS college football playoff game on ESPN2 to be interrupted in the middle of play.
We expect Google to join us in this endeavor.” Money has been at the center of the argument: Google claimed that Disney demanded more costs for its television networks than “services of comparable scale pay,” the internet giant stated on Monday, when the dispute became public.
YouTube also mentioned in a blog post that viewers may pay up for the Disney Bundle for $13.99 per month to have access to Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu on-demand with advertisements. According to expert estimates, YouTube TV has over 4 million customers, making it one of the largest internet pay-TV providers in the United States.
As of the third quarter of 2020, Alphabet (Google’s parent company) claimed that YouTube TV has more over 3 million subscribers. Note that one of YouTube TV’s immediate rivals is Hulu + Live TV, which is controlled and owned by Disney in the majority.
Hulu has 4.0 million live TV clients as of the September quarter, up 300,000 sequentially but down from 4.1 million in the year-ago period. The price of Hulu + Live TV bundles will increase by $5 per month on December 21 due to the mandatory inclusion of Disney Plus and ESPN Plus. Local ABC channels, ABC News Live, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, FX, FXX, FXM, National Geographic, National Geographic Wild, ESPN, ESPN2; ESPN3 (via the ESPN app); ESPNU; ESPNews; SEC Network; and ACC Network are among the Disney-owned channels that have been removed from YouTube TV.
In addition, YouTube TV members no longer have access to any past Disney channel DVR recordings. Google and NBCUniversal had a similar stalemate earlier this autumn over a contract for NBCU cable networks and local NBC stations; before the firms reached an agreement, Google was prepared to reduce the monthly price of YouTube TV by $10 if the NBCU channels went dark.
