Disney Media Distribution has upped its portfolio of TV channels offered on Sony’s online TV platform, PlayStation Vue.
The standalone TV service with more than 800,000 subscribers now has access to Disney’s recently acquired FX and National Geographic networks, in addition to ESPN’s ACC Network.
Sean Breen, SVP of Disney Media Distribution, said Vue offers subscribers personalization, which he said is “attractive” as consumers navigate video options.
“We look forward to continue serving subscribers the full value of our content from Walt Disney Television and ESPN,” Breen said in a statement.
Existing Disney channels on Vue include ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, ESPN Deportes, ESPN College Extra, ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Bases Loaded, SEC Network, ACC Network, Longhorn Network, FX, FXX, FXM, Fox Life, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, Nat Geo Mundo, BabyTV, and ABC News Live.
The expanded carriage agreement comes after Sony raised the monthly Vue subscription fee $5, bringing the platform’s bundle options priced $50 to $85.
