Just two days ago, pundits began congratulating Dish on achieving what other companies couldnt: convincing Disney ABC to offer broadcast and cable channels over the internet as part of an IPTV service. The magic bullet appeared to be Dishs ad-skipping AutoHop technology, which Dish agreed to disable for the first three days after new Disney shows air. But it appears that Dishs satellite rival, DirecTV, may also win the right to stream Disney and ABC broadcast and cable television channels. Reuters is reporting that DirecTV and Disney are currently in negotiations for a similar arrangement to Dish, despite the fact that DirecTV doesnt have a similar commercial-skipping technology to disable. While its not a done deal by any means, a DirecTV spokesman seemed confident in the arrangement, and suggested that negotiations for the rights were expected as the satellite providers contract with Disney expires.
