Maybe.  They will often agree to stick to the old contract until the deal is finalized.  We will never really know, unless the channel "goes dark."

Re: June Carriage Agreements

There wasn't a failure to reach a deal with Soapnet. The channel is being replaced by Disney Junior. Eventually, it will be gone for good.
