(Photo credit: Pexels) If Disney offers us fair terms, we will renew our agreement with them. However, if we don`t reach an agreement by Friday, Disney`s own channels will no longer be available on YouTube TV and we`ll reduce our $15 monthly price from $64.99 to $49.99 (while keeping that content off our platform). We are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with Disney to return their content to YouTube TV while receiving a prize of $64.99/month for our members. We`ve already started restoring access to Disney networks like ESPN and FX, including their live and on-demand content, as well as all previous footage in your library. We will also turn on local ABC channels during the day. At YouTube, we regularly update our Terms of Service to ensure that they are clear and easy to understand and that they meet the needs of our partners, advertisers and viewers. This isn`t the first time this year that Google has found itself in a deadlock with a media company over distribution. In the fall, Google`s agreement with NBCUniversal`s cable networks and local NBC stations expired.
The companies were able to quickly reach a new agreement. A similar disagreement with Roku over the terms of distribution of the YouTube and YouTube TV apps was settled this month. Since we promised a $15 discount while Disney content remained outside the platform, we will continue to credit a one-time credit for all affected members. For active members who have not yet received this $15 discount on their monthly bill, you will automatically receive a one-time credit on your next bill with no action required. For members who have been affected and have begun the termination process, we would be happy to welcome you back. Visit tv.youtube.com/membership and click “Add” to re-enroll the basic plan in your membership. If you continue your membership before losing access, we will still consider the one-time balance of $15 on your bill. We will update this website with more details shortly. We`re now in negotiations with Disney to continue distributing their content on YouTube TV so you can continue watching everything from your favorite teams on ESPN to The Bachelor to Good Morning America. Our agreement expires on Friday, December 17 and we have not yet been able to reach a fair agreement, so we wanted to give you a quick overview so that you can understand your decisions. We know this is frustrating news for our customers and not what we wanted. We will continue discussions with Disney to defend you in the hope of restoring your content to YouTube TV.
