More on the pay TV landscape (previous): Any change away from the model of forcing consumers to buy TV packages with hundreds of channels in favor of picking their options a la carte could help Dish Network (DISH +0.7%) and DirecTV (DTV -0.2%) - while pinching carriage fees for providers such as Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI -0.7%), AMC Networks (AMCX -4.3%) and even Disney (DIS +0.6%) with ESPN a major profit driver for the media giant.
