Do we have any idea when DTV may reach some agreement with ABC so that we can finally authenticate Watch ABC on mobile devices?  It's really annoying to have just about every other provider available but no DTV.  These agreements all seem so random ..

I know the contract is up for renegotiation this year. I would be very surprised if streaming wasn't nailed down by then. Actually a bit surprised they didn't get it done before the World Cup so DIRECTV could stream it on WatchESPN.

Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

Boy I hope it gets done this year.   I feel like we're left out of some great mobile experiences without these agreements...

You can blame Disney for this, as much as they say on their website to contact your provider to get access, they won't add their "watch" product mid-contract.  plus you know what this means when we do get access, a higher bill..ugh!
