YouTube TV may lose Disney channels by December 17




If a deal is not reached soon between Google and Disney, subscribers of YouTube TV may be losing some pretty important channels on their line-up.

More than a dozen Disney-owned channels may go dark by Friday, December 17, 2021, as their distribution contract ends by then. The two companies are still in “active conversation” but in case they are not able to reach a new agreement, YouTube TV will be reducing its monthly price by $15 to cover the loss of channels like Disney Channel, ESPN, and National Geographic.

YouTube TV announced that they are still negotiating with Disney to be able to continue distributing their channels on their platform. But since the deal expires this week already, they’re giving advance notice to their subscribers that more than a dozen channels may not be available by then if they fail to reach a new agreement. They did not specifically state what’s bogging down these negotiations but as with a lot of things, it probably boils down to costs.

Google says they want Disney to treat YouTube TV “like any other TV provider” by giving them the same rates as other services with a similar size pay. For its part, Disney says that they are “committed to working with Google to reach a fair, market-based agreement.” Both companies are saying that they are optimistic that they’ll be able to find an agreement but those are standard statements for those that are undergoing negotiations. Neither will probably do a Roku and accuse the other of trying to gain leverage over them.

If they fail to reach an agreement by Friday, YouTube TV will decrease their monthly fee by $15. So instead of $64.99, subscribers will only pay $49.99 per month. This will only last until Disney content is unavailable on the platform. In case you were only subscribing because of the Disney-owned channels, you have the option to pause or cancel your subscription at any time.

If you still want to get some form of Disney content, you can get the Disney Bundle $13.99 per month.

The channels that will disappear from your YouTube TV by December 17, 2021 are the following:

– Your local ABC channel
– ABC News Live
– Disney Channel
– Disney Junior
– Disney XD
– Freeform
– FX
– National Geographic
– National Geographic Wild
– ESPN3 (by authentication to the ESPN app)
– SEC Network
– ACC Network


3 Ways to Use YouTube to Hack Google’s SEO Algorithm




There’s nothing worse than starting an SEO plan for a client that does understand that SEO can be a LONG game. Even after you’ve beat them over the head with that fact, the client can still get upset for paying month after month with only little to show.

That’s where Google’s little brother YouTube comes to the rescue! By adding a video marketing plan to your clients SEO strategy. You can help them get quick wins. 

You see, when your little brother makes you billions of dollars, little brother doesn’t have to wait in line like the other websites for that page 1 ranking, little brother cuts the line with the 3 video carousel that will be right on page 1 of Google

Getting your clients videos to rank in that video carousel will help your client feel good about working with you +PLUS help your SEO plan stand out from your competition.

Here are 3 Video SEO tips to help your client snag that top spot! 

  • Determine what long tail or short tail keywords you want to go after and craft your content verbiage around that. Have your client say those words in the video. 
  • Once you upload that video, correct the close caption transcript google creates, when you do that, Google will mark that video optimized.
  • Create an eye-catching thumbnail. You don’t want to claim that spot and have a boring, unclickable thumb nail. Make sure you design an image that’s quick to read, understand and answers the question they just searched for.
