UVerse and Cablevision just re-upped within the past couple of months."mws192" said:ESPN once again confirmed earlier this week that it isn't looking to sell this as an add-on to an existing carriage agreement, instead we have to wait until the current deal is over/renewed.
"Asked if ESPN, which has been including the service as a key facet of comprehensive distribution deals it has consummated over the past two years, was now pitching Watch ESPN separately, Bratches said no."
"In an interview after the presentation, Bratches said ESPN's goal is to "double the distribution of our affiliate base that has Watch ESPN in the next year.""
And Cablevision specifically mentions that WatchESPN will be included, although it is not active yet."mws192" said:UVerse and Cablevision just re-upped within the past couple of months.
