The two companies announced on Tuesday that they have agreed to a multi-year deal covering popular Disney channels, including ESPN, ABC, The Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Disney’s soon-to-launch Spanish-language channel. The deal includes distribution of content beyond traditional televisions, to gaming consoles, smartphones, tablets and computers, The Hollywood Reporter noted.
