    ^Yeah, I’ dunno much about Android, but talking about this with a guy I work with last night who has a Fire Stick.
    There’s so many options out there, if these companies wanna keep driving up fees they’re gonna end up on the losing end if their content is available for free. I’ll just leave it at that.

    What is he trying to imply the shorter extension times “mean”?

    Was wondering that too. It might mean they're ironing out the final details, which could be numerous.

    Looking at his Twitter bio...

    Seems to have credible insider info?

    It means he's so excited, he can't hold out much longer.

    In the back of my mind I keep thinking that both sides are monitoring consumer feedback about this carriage renewal, trying to determine just how badly each gets hurt if it doesn’t happen.
    And make no mistake, if they can’t come to an agreement, it hurts both of them a lot.

    Extension times shortening could be bad too. Their not making much headway.

    Perhaps both parties are coming to whatever's left of their senses.

    Ray Cole was on the board of ESPN/Disney. I think he is very credible.

    For what it's worth at the bottom of replies to that tweet there was a replay stating that the extension goes to the end of the month. I think that would be more credible than extending a few hrs at a time by this time. You would think Disney would just say screw it and pull the channel instead of giving Directv chance after chance. Thus I believe the end of the month deadline over the small ones but that's just me.

    All of Ray Cole's tweets regarding ESPN/DirecTV have been deleted.

    Must’ve gotten in trouble. That’s a shame. Solidifies his credibility though. Now nobody will know anything until either or both of the companies want us to...

    Yeah that is what I’m thinking. The guy is def legit. Look at his account with all the execs/ ESPN celebs, but was probably told about tweeting about it.

    That or he was tired of all the questions.
