If you are thinking about going to a friend’s house to watch some NFL football on Sunday night you may want to ask whether they have Charter TV. Once again NBCUniversal is looking at blacking out cable TV subscribers and this time it is fighting with Charter.
Starting January 1 almost 17 million Americans will have their NCBSl go dark if a new deal is not reached with NBC and Charter. This means NBCUniversal owned stations such as Bravo, Syfy, and USA will no longer by on Charter TV. Sadly for Charter TVs subscribers it is not looking good right now.
“NBCUniversal values its partnership with Charter Spectrum, our third largest distributor,” the company said in a statement. “Charter Spectrum has been unyielding in its demand for terms superior to those agreed to by the rest of the industry, including larger distributors. Given this position, we feel the responsibility to inform viewers that Charter Spectrum may drop NBCUniversal’s networks at the end of the year, including NBC, Telemundo, USA, Bravo and hit shows including the #1 show on TV — Sunday Night Football, WWE, the Golden Globes, “This Is Us” and more.”
However, once again this is something cord cutters won’t have to worry about because cord cutters can just turn on their antennas to access NBC NFL football.
So if you have a friend who has Charter TV and wants to watch the NFL game on Sunday night make sure to tell them to get an antenna before the game starts. If they need help finding the right antenna have them visit AntennaRecommendations.com to see what kind of antenna they need.
