In its first major distribution agreement since debuting last August, Current announced an agreement with Comcast that boosts the network’s carriage from 20 million to 28 million households. The deal represents nearly all Comcast systems and will take effect by June 1.

“Current has a dedicated and growing audience, and we are pleased to make it available to more of our digital cable customers,” said Matt Bond, executive VP of content acquisition for Comcast. “The network’s unique, innovative focus is particularly relevant to younger viewers and is another example of how we are bringing our customers the programming they want to watch.”
