In a suit filed with the New York Supreme Court, Disney is suing Verizon for a plan that allows Verizon FiOS customers to choose a smaller bundle of TV channels each month. The ESPN channels are part of the sports bundle under their new “custom tv” plan which effectively makes ESPN optional. ESPN believes they are contractually obligated to be included in the base package. Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior are part of the “Kids Channel Pack”.

In a statement, ESPN said, “ESPN is at the forefront of embracing innovative ways to deliver high-quality content and value to consumers on multiple platforms, but that must be done in compliance with our agreements. We simply ask that Verizon abide by the terms of our contracts.”

Verizon has not commented on the suit.

An all-new era begins this May as Marvel’s Mightiest Mavens assemble for an explosive new series launching during Secret Wars! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look inside the blockbuster A-FORCE #1 – from the creative team of G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel), Marguerite Bennett (Angela: Asgard’s Assassin, James Patterson’s Max Ride: First Flight) and Jorge Molina (X-Men)!

As the Secret Wars begin, the Avengers as you know them are no more – and a new team will lead the way! In a secluded corner of Battleworld lies Arcadia, an island nation fiercely protected by a team of Avengers the likes of which has never been seen before!

So who are the Marvel powerhouses taking center stage? “She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru and other fan favorites, will take charge,” says series co-writer G. Willow Wilson. “We’ve purposefully assembled a team composed of different characters from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies.”

And there came a day unlike any other, when Earth’s Mightiest Heroines found themselves united against a common threat. Fighting to protect the small sliver of their world that’s left, they stand tall, shoulder-to-shoulder, ready to take on the horde. Ushering in a new day with a rallying cry heard across Battleworld – A-FORCE ASSEMBLE!

Heed the call, and don’t miss the start of a comic series that will have the world talking when A-FORCE #1 hits comic shops and digital devices this May!

What really goes on at the Happiest Place on Earth? Trevor Allen once played Pluto and the Mad Hatter at Disneyland. He returns with tales of quirky co-workers, militant managers, and backstage debauchery in this unique coming-of-age tale. Working for the Mouse blows pixie dust in your eyes while offering a hilarious glimpse behind the ears of the Magic Kingdom. Voted Best of the SF Fringe Festival, it’s garnered sold-out houses and critical acclaim in San Francisco and Berkeley and around the Bay Area without once getting a cease-and-desist order from Disney. Be careful what you wish upon a star for… it just might come true.

The play is currently being performed in Los Angeles. It will also be coming to San Jose in May
and San Francisco in June.
