Dish’s AirTV launches an $80 streaming stick for accessing Sling TV, Netflix & broadcast channels

Despite the new AirTV Mini’s streaming stick form factor, it’s not meant to compete with rival streaming sticks like the low-cost Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku streaming stick or Chromecast in terms of price. Instead, it’s a $79.99 alternative to the $119.99 AirTV Player bundle — perhaps for someone who doesn’t care for the sort of Playskool-inspired design of the original streaming box, but still wants over-the-air channels, 4K support, and easy access to Sling TV and Netflix. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch » https://tcrn.ch/2jJ4TS6

Disney and Charter are talking about carriage fees, and the outcome could affect how much you pay for cable in the streaming era

Content providers who have long pushed for higher carriage fees could face severe pushback from pay-TV providers who say that linear networks aren’t as valuable because so much content is available online — not only at Netflix and Amazon, but now within the content companies’ own streaming products. Moreover, if customers do flee the pay-TV bundle for streaming services, pay-TV providers may want to cut content spending even more to keep costs down. – Alex Sherman, CNBC » https://cnb.cx/32pUcVV

Charter gets to stay in New York, reaches new deal with state to roll out internet service

Per the agreement, “Charter will expand its network to provide high-speed broadband service to 145,000 residences and businesses entirely in Upstate New York” by September 30th, 2021, with Charter to foot the estimated $600 million bill for that expansion. By the Public Service Commission’s estimate, Charter has reached approximately 65,000 of the required 145,000 addresses it’s obligated to, meaning that it’ll have plenty of work over the next two years in order to hit that deadline. – Chaim Gartenberg, The Verge » https://ift.tt/2GcuquT
