The deal follows a tense standoff concerning the retrans fees for Disney-owned ABC. Cablevision and Disney came to a tentative agreement that put ABC back on its cable systems, but it is still undetermined whether a long-term deal has been finalized, according to Multichannel News.

In addition, Cablevision has agreed to carry the HD feeds of the Disney Channel, ABC Family, Disney XD and ESPNews.
