Some Charter Cable Subscribers May Lose MTV, Comedy Central, and Nickelodeon
Viacom, the owner of MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon, said on Wednesday it was unable to come to a distribution deal with Charter Communications as part of its ongoing negotiations with the cable television distributor.
Charter’s Spectrum subscribers may see a disruption in service, Viacom said in a statement.
Earlier this year, Charter moved Viacom’s (VIAB) flagship networks to its most expensive programming tier, a move that threatened the media company’s affiliate and advertising revenue.
A spokesman for Charter (CHTR) did not immediately return calls outside of business hours.
