    While its possible the channels could still be pulled I highly doubt that both sides would agree to an extension that close if they didn't have some belief that a deal could be reached. So I am still hopeful they can come to terms on a deal. #fingerscrossed

    The scroll doesn’t show anything about losing ESPN now. It did last night. Could be a good sign.

    Why not extend the contract every 4 hours for the next 4 years?

    After the "every few hours" extensions pass MNF they can extend until next Friday 6pm and take the week off.

    You can still watch ESPN on the ESPN app, right?

    I dont think so cause this is a dispute with the parent (abc/disney/espn)


    With the Nexstar dispute u could watch online because D* still had agreement with parent nbc/fox etc

    You need your provider credentials to login. It will depend on how ESPN will handle it.

    It will most likely be a few hours for it to be pulled. If it gets pulled.

    What is the ultimate goal here? Higher prices for espn that has lost viewers throughout the week, for the few games fans want to watch.

    People to cord cut so they too can then pay higher prices in the future ala $20 netflix(wallstreets expected price for profitably). $50 youtubetv and so on. I'm not a luddite yet what is so great about all these services that I've tried on all sorts of various devices?

    Price, gonna increase.

    Customer Service through google, lol.

    Sick of the scare tactics already, Disney is greedy Star Wars at the parks and box office failed MCU is dead because all the character arcs are over.

    Tell customers you're going take the easy way to watch these games away, guess I'll just have to watch for free.
