Now it looks like a new deal may have been reached. This means subscribers to AT&T’s services won’t lose Disney owned channels and Disney owned ABC affiliates including WABC Channel 7, KABC Channel 7, WTVD ABC 11, KGO ABC 7, KTRK ABC 13, KFSN ABC 30, WLS ABC 7, and WPVI ABC 6.

Update: Reports are this may not be a permanent deal but a long-term extension to give both sides time to finalize a deal. No official announcement has been made about Disney and AT&T’s talks at this time.

Last night Disney stopped airing ads warning that ESPN and other Disney-owned channels could go dark on AT&T’s  TV services. The website for the possible blackout also removed any mention of the blackout. AT&T and Disney have yet to make any official announcement but it is starting to look like a deal has been reached to keep Disney-owned networks on AT&T’s AT&T TV, AT&T TV NOW, U-verse TV, and DIRECTV.
