The deal is an important further step toward TV Everywhere, in that Comcast negotiated the right to stream ESPN's channels to its authenticated subscribers via broadband, mobile and wireless. For the first time, Comcast subscribers will have access to the WatchESPN app that streams ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 to mobile and wireless subscribers. The deal also allows Comcast to put content from ESPN3, FullCourt and GamePlan on its sports and entertainment tier. The deal does not, however, include Longhorn Network.
The Comcast deal includes retrans agreements for seven local broadcast stations. Comcast will launch a new channel called Disney Junior.
