Zucker Says Broadcast ‘Inferior’ to Cable

Jun 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment


NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker tells the Wall Street Journal that the problem with "broadcast television is it’s an inferior model to cable television, [which has] dual revenue streams."

Because of that, Zucker tells the newspaper the company is evaluating broadcast’s "infrastructures, the legacies, the cost structures, all of that."

Meanwhile, Zucker said the company expects online television site Hulu "to be positive for us very soon," and added that subscriptions to the service is something NBCU might consider, the Journal reports.
