Comcast exploring global Sky-NBC News channel

Recommended Posts

Sky-News-2016.jpeg?resize=1200%2C800&sslThe possibility of a global news channel drawing on the resources of NBC News and Sky News has been raised by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts.

Little detail was available during an investor call held following the announcements of Comcasts results.

However, Roberts’ comments that Comcast was “exploring a global Sky-NBC news channel later this year” came during prepared remarks.

The role of Sky News was a key factor during Comcast’s £22 billion takeover of the broadcaster. Comcast committed to maintaining inflation-adjusted funding in Sky News, to maintain Sky’s HQ in Osterley and to establish a separate Sky News Board.

Sky News is already available on Comcast’s X1 service.

Sky added 112,000 new customers across the group during the first quarter of 2019 – a marked improvement on the 74,000 recorded in the first quarter of 2018.

In all customer relationships increased 3.5% year in year to 23.7 million. Revenues decreased 5.0% to $4.8 billion in the first quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased 17% to $663 million on the back of new contracts for Serie A and UEFA Champions League soccer rights in Italy and Germany.
