(Reuters) – Alphabet Inc’s YouTube began restoring access to Walt Disney Co channels on its platform on Sunday, after the companies reached a distribution agreement to end a two-day blackout.
YouTube tweeted that “we’ve reached a deal with Disney and have already started to restore access to channels like ESPN and FX.”
Neither company disclosed the financial terms of deal.
YouTube warned last week that it would only renew its agreement with Disney if the company offered “equitable terms” and announced that it was cutting the monthly price for YouTube TV by $15, from $64.99 to $49.99.
On Sunday, YouTube said a monthly subscription had reverted to $64.99, but affected users would receive a one-time $15 discount.
