Quotable

“I won’t answer specifically to the question about the NFL [Sunday Ticket] package. But we know the NFL is really valuable. But the answer is yes, we will be looking to buy more rights for ESPN Plus as they become available. And I imagine down the road, ESPN – the linear channel is still very valuable to us and distributers, but down the road, you could see a shift to some extent of some product from those services to ESPN Plus.
