Streaming only live programming may be coming soon

Sources are claiming that Dish Network is in talks with several networks on providing live programming over the Internet. If successful this would be the first streaming media offering to provide users with live programming online without a cable subscription. According to the sources Dish Network is in talks with Viacom, which owns MTV, Univision Communications, and Scripps Networks Interactive.

Univision provides Spanish-language programming and Scripps is the owner of the Food Network and HGTV. The move is apparently an attempt by Dish Network to get around paying massive fees to Walt Disney for ESPN. ESPN reportedly gets as much is $5.13 per subscriber even if the subscribers don't watch the sports programming. The streaming options would allow for smaller bundles of channels without sports content.
