Disney-owned channels on YouTube TV go offline

Avatar for David Becker

We reported earlier this week that there was a chance that if Google-owned YouTube TV and Disney did not reach an agreement by December 17, the Disney-owned channels would no longer be available on YouTube TV.

That day has become the reality and those channels are no longer on the live TV streaming service.

Here are the following channels that are no longer available on YouTube TV: Local ABC stations, ABC News Live, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, FX, FXX, FXM, National Geographic, National Geographic Wild, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 (by authentication with the ESPN app), ESPN U, ESPNEWS, ACC Network and SEC Network.

As a result of those channels no longer being on YouTube TV, the service’s monthly price will drop to $49.99 a month until a new agreement with it and Disney is renewed.

The loss of the ESPN networks is crucial, as ESPN and its family of networks have started college football bowl season, as well as other sports content such as college basketball and NBA games, with several games set to air on Christmas Day.

YouTube TV has announced on Twitter that it will continue negotiations between it and Disney for a new agreement.
