Charter had accused Disney of demanding "an excessive increase" in carrier fees. Neither company on Monday disclosed financial terms of the deal, which was finalized hours before the Monday Night Football game between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills set to air on ABC and ESPN on September 11.

Deal is done. No idea on who gave what but rates will ultimately go up. It's the way of the world of bloodsuckers.

More details.....

Other Disney-owned channels on Spectrum include the Disney Channel, National Geographic, FX, local ABC stations and the SEC Network. Spectrum customers will no longer get access to Baby TV, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, FXM, FXX, Nat Geo Wild and Nat Geo Mundo under the deal announced Monday.

As part of the new deal, customers will be able to purchase Disney+, Hulu or The Disney Bundle directly through Charter. Anyone who purchases Spectrum TV Select Plus will get the basic version of Disney+ included in their package. Spectrum TV Select Plus customers will also get ESPN+ and ESPN's standalone streaming service, which hasn't launched yet.
