The networks have argued that they are the ones these new entrants should be dealing with. For example, NBC is negotiating with Sony on behalf of at least some of its affiliates, according to people familiar with the matter.

But affiliates have long negotiated their own carriage deals directly with cable and satellite-TV providers, and they aren’t all willing to cede this power in the digital realm. – Keach Hagey, The Wall Street Journal
