By John Heerdink LinkedIn

Dow 30 Component, The Walt Disney Company (DIS),  and its subsidiaries is a diversified worldwide entertainment company that operates in four business segments: Studio Entertainment, Media Networks, Parks and Resorts, and Consumer Products & Interactive Media

Reportedly,  Disney and Charter Communications Inc have signed a charter agreement authorizing Charter with distribution rights for Disney’s sports, news and entertainment content to Spectrum customers, including Hulu, ESPN+ and the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. The deal seems to benefit Spectrum customers by offering access to ACC Network, an upcoming ESPN network expected to launch on Aug. 22. The partnership is also working to prevent piracy, rules, and techniques to address unauthorized access and password.

“This agreement will allow Spectrum to continue delivering to its customers popular Disney content, makes a possible future distribution by Spectrum of Disney streaming services, and will begin an important collaborative effort to address the significant issue of piracy mitigation,”  stated Tom Montemagno, Charter’s executive vice president for programming acquisition.

“Our new agreement with Charter allows us to continue serving Spectrum TV customers with the full value of the Walt Disney Television and ESPN networks, including the newly acquired FX and Nat Geo networks,” stated Sean Breen, senior vice president for Disney Media Distribution.
