Is Disney pulling the plug on local TV networks? After already offering live streams for ESPN and the Disney Channel to mobile users, the company will now move into live streaming of ABC in a development that could eventually lead to lower ratings for the local stations of the major networks. Broadcast blues: Media General (MG -0.3%), Gray Television (GTN -3.1%), Belo Corp. (BLC +0.5%), Lin TV (TVL -0.4%), Nextstar Broadcasting (NXST +0.6%), Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI +0.7%).
