Sprint has struck a deal to make full-length Disney and ABC TV shows available to Power Vision TV Pack subscribers. ABC will offer three channels that stream a constant rotation of popular clips and full-length shows - ABC, ABC News Now and Disney. The carrier will also make the last four episodes of the full-length shows available on-demand. The most recent episode will be available the day after it airs on TV. Those who already pay $15 per month for the Power Vision Access pack will get free access to the Disney selections, but not ABC. Sprint Power Vision TV Pack costs an additional $5 at $20 per month. Though the shows will launch ad-free, Sprint will begin to include advertising in the streams later this year.

When is Verizon going to add more channels???
When will all these questions be answered? Right now, the programming stinks on Verizon. They definately marketed to the "soap" watchers. That's on like half the day.
Now if only they would add NBC..
These carriers need to stop trying to monopolize content in my opinion. Although I understand the revenue grab.
