Charter Reaches Retrans Pacts With Belo

Dec 29, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Charter Communications reached tentative retransmission agreements with Belo Corp.’s CBS affiliate in St. Louis, its ABC affiliate in Norfolk, Va., and its NBC affiliate in Charlotte, N.C., Multichannel News says, citing messages on those stations’ Web sites. Belo had warned that the stations’ signals wouldn’t be available to Charter cable subscribers if deals weren’t reached by the time their old agreements expired at the end of the year. The St. Louis station was asking Charter for 1 cent per Charter subscriber per day, or about $1.6 million a year, Multichannel says, citing the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
