Multiple outlets are reporting on Disney's showdown with Verizon's Fios system, as the two sides can't agree on a new price for the Disney family of networks. The main point of contention is ESPN's new ACC Network. If the sides cannot agree, all Disney networks might be taken off the Verizon system. Most of you are probably saying "who cares?" but Fios' four million subscribers are mostly in the northeast corridor and include plenty of BC alumni.
These games of chicken happen nearly every time a college network rolls out. The Big Ten dealt with it (and eventually won). The Pac 12 dealt with it and is sort of losing, as they still are not on Directv and several west coast outlets. I think ESPN will probably win this battle as unlike the Big Ten and Pac 12, they have very powerful leverage with the ESPN Networks as well as the Disney channels. Plus Verizon has multiple rivals who will gladly use this to get people to switch providers.
The ACC Network doesn't officially launch until next football season, so there will plenty of work arounds established if the two sides never reach agreement.
