NBCUniversal Says Channels May Go Dark in Charter Cable Dispute

  • NBC: Charter has been ‘unyielding’ in demanding better terms
  • Cable provider has customers in Los Angeles and New York City

NBCUniversal says its broadcast and cable networks, including USA and Bravo, may be unavailable to Charter Communications Inc. subscribers on Jan. 1 as the companies fight over contract terms.

Charter “has been unyielding in its demand for terms superior to those agreed to by the rest of the industry, including larger distributors,” NBCUniversal said in a statement Thursday. Charter is NBCUniversal’s third-largest distributor, with 17.3 million subscribers across the country, including major markets like New York City and Los Angeles.
