Disney and Charter Communications recently agreed to a deal that will improve content delivery over the course of multiple years. The new Disney and Charter Communications deal will result in increased Disney sports coverage to customers of Charter's Spectrum service. Charter will also be able to distribute sections of Disney's streaming service, including Hulu, ESPN+, and Disney+. Additionally, Spectrum customers will receive access to the ESPN ACC network, which will be available on August 22.
Charters Vice president of programing expressed his opinion on the new deal, "This agreement will allow Spectrum to continue delivering to its customers popular Disney content, makes possible future distribution by Spectrum of Disney streaming services, and will begin an important collaborative effort to address the significant issue of piracy mitigation."
The new deal will help both organizations insulate against reduced cable subscriptions.
