Interesting story........

and you can sum up the current negotiations and the pressure to get them done with this I believe, half of something is better than all of nothing. It is clear DISH has a philosophy and I am sure the other cable carriers do as well so the challenge in completing the negotiations falls to clearly defining what the something is. In the case of carriers not yet subject to the renewal of their omnibus agreement the old Fram oil filter commercial applies. Disney will say you can pay me now or pay me later but, those later negotiations will probably be a lot more contentious if the carrier chooses to go to the wall now. With the announcement of the Charter Spectrum agreement the ACC has already blown through the metrics of the original Big Ten launch, surpassed the PAC 12 as it exists today and is tracking favorably with the SEC rollout. This last week should be interesting and even after launch the wrapping up of loose ends will provide some entertainment. Thanks for all the industry perspective you provide to this board!
