DEAL ME IN: In N.Y., Claire Atkinson writes the future of TV viewing "is coming into view -- and it’s all about streaming." The Disney-Dish deal "had the media world buzzing" yesterday, as it "promises to take a Netflix-like service to current sports, entertainment and movies" (N.Y. POST, 3/5). CBS President & CEO Les Moonves said that the Disney-Dish agreement to "address concerns over Dish's ad-skipping technology was 'a great start' but not enough to satisfy CBS." He said that CBS' carriage deal with Dish "expires this year, and he expects to take a different approach than Disney in the negotiations" (WSJ.com, 3/4).
