Disney Renews Carriage Deal With NCTC, Adding Sports Networks and Digital Rights To Mix

The National Cable Television Cooperative renewed its carriage deal with The Walt Disney Company in an agreement that will add a few of Disney’s sports networks to the distribution mix as well as encompass rights for digital distribution.

The Kansas-based NCTC is a cable co-op that served 1,000 different member companies across the U.S.

Under terms of the deal, NCTC members will carry both the Longhorn Network, an ESPN-distributed regional sports network that focuses on University of Texas games, and the SEC Network, a network focused on coverage of the Southeastern Conference that is set to debut later in August.

NCTC will also add various services that allow subscribers to access programming on demand or through various video-streaming apps that Disney has in place for its entertainment and sports networks.

Among the services that continue to be covered under the relationship are ABC, ESPN, Fusion, ABC Family, Disney Channel and Disney Junior.
