WASHINGTON — TeleCommunications Inc. said Aug. 26 it has cut 25 non-cash retransmission consent deals with broadcasters throughout the United States.
The stations are located mostly in small and medium markets. However, NBC affils KRON San Francisco and WOWT Omaha and ABC affil KOAT Albuquerque are included on the list.
TCI, the nation’s largest cable system operator, said it also has interim agreements “pending ongoing negotiations” with another 25 broadcasters. TCI said those interim agreements ensure that the stations will not be dropped Oct. 6, the FCC deadline for completion of retrans negotiations.
