NBCUniversal reaches new deal with Suddenlink

Cabler pact covers retransmission for NBC, Telemundo stations

NBCUniversal has a new affiliation deal with Suddenlink, the nation’s seventh largest cabler, covering in and out-of-home viewing of NBCU’s cable networks and retransmission for NBC and Telemundo stations.

The agreement includes expansive rights to carry the 2014 Winter Olympics, on-demand content from NBCUniversal’s cable and broadcast portfolio and access to live channels across multiple platforms, called TV Everywhere. Suddenlink’s service is called Suddenlink2GO.

It’s NBCU’s second deal in a month following a pact with Cablevision that was the Peacock’s first to incorporate TV Everywhere and repped something of a retrans revival for the broadcaster.

NBCUniversal’s cable networks include USA, Bravo Media, Cloo, Chiller, CNBC, G4, MSNBC, mun2, NBC Sports Network, Oxygen Media, Syfy, Telemundo Media and Universal HD as well as Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, Comcast SportsNet California and Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic.

“We are thrilled to continue our successful and long-standing partnership with Suddenlink,” said Matt Bond, NBCU’s exec VP for content distribution. “This agreement underscores our commitment to TV Everywhere.”

Suddenlink has 1.4 million subscribers clustered in Texas, West Virginia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.
