Including all ESPN networks…18 channels in all…

If you don’t watch these channels and this happens you will save 15 bucks a month as YT will lower their rate while these channels are missing.

Personally considering Hulu Live with Disney bundle since the wife has to have hulu basic anyway.  If this happens that is.

I looked at Hulu Live. It costs as much as cable with less channels. No, thanks.

Yeah this is true, all the streaming services of note are expensive these days.  Pretty comparable to cable minus equipment costs etc.  When you include cable bundles they may even be cheaper.

Standalone internet in my area is 90 bucks which feels outrageous but no alternatives really

Well I canceled YT TV and will try Hulu TV with Disney+ bundle.  Looking good so far and ESPN+ is actually kinda nice.  Disney+ has a ton of content now.  Kids are loving it already 

There's a lot of good stuff on Hulu too. And the ESPN+ specials, like the Peyton stuff, is decent

Disney power play for sure here.  Also, Disney is upping the price for Hulu Live TV by 5 bucks next week.  Merry Xmas suckers

It was announced back in November, and they’re giving subscribers more features with the price hike. So not really a predatory price hike in reaction to YouTube.

I wonder if YouTube is going to pull a true sigma move and hold frame during the entire bowl season and CFP

From https://www.sportingnews.com/us/ncaa-football/news/youtube-tv-espn-disney/7qv3nuhg0yn21f60xnq7cosck , the list of games to be aired on ESPN.

Includes:

  • Orange Bowl and Cotton Bowl on Dec 31, CFP championship on Jan 10 (THESE will be the trigger for fans/contracts, moreso than most of the others on the list)
  • Peach, Fiesta, Rose Bowl, Sugar -- while many games will be interesting to watch, the regional bowl games don't always have as large a national pull as the CFP.
  • Texas, Outback, Citrus.  LSU, Kentucky, Arkansas.... 
  • Oh no, we won't get the Pinstripe Bowl, the Cheez-It Bowl, the Fenway Bowl, Quick Lane Bowl, Guaranteed Rate Bowl....   That Kent State v Wyoming game is going to be riveting!

I jest, slightly -- but some of these bowl games are not going to showcase the players we may be interested in for draft potential as well as watching the same players during the competitive season.  For some of these games, they sometimes come across as glorified pro bowls.

We’re happy to share that we’ve reached a deal with Disney to return their content to YouTube TV while preserving a $64.99/mo. price for our members. We’ve already started to restore access to Disney networks like ESPN and FX, including their live and on-demand content, as well as any recordings that were previously in your Library. We will also be turning on your local ABC stations over the course of the day. Don’t worry, your personal preferences and recommendations will be just as you left them.

As we promised a $15 discount while the Disney content remained off platform, we will still honor a one-time credit for all impacted Base Plan members.
