Disney, Sony Reach Deal on Video Streaming

Sony will be streaming all Disney channels, including ESPN and ABC, and subscriber households can view more than one stream at a time. Disney already has a deal with Dish Network’s Sling TV to distribute the same channels over the Web, but the Sony deal is the first that offers the Disney channels on a multi-stream basis.

PlayStation Vue is available on PS3 and PS4 consoles and Apple iPads to subscribers whose service originates through one of Sony’s consoles. Gaming consoles were the top devices used to view online video content in the first quarter of 2015, according to new research from Parks Associates. The Xbox from Microsoft is the most commonly used consumer electronics device used for video streaming (14%), followed by the PlayStation consoles (13%).
