The New Year got off to a positive start with Charter Communications announcing on Thursday that it had reached a new carriage agreement with Nexstar Broadcasting Group.
Charter said it had wrapped up the new retransmission agreement with Nexstar prior to the previous one expiring just before midnight on Dec. 31. The new deal—financial terms weren’t released— kept the Nexstar stations on the air across 15 of Charter’s markets.
Charter’s subscribers in those markets were able to view content from NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, MyNetworkTV, The CW, and Telemundo, as well as local news, without any interruptions across the Nexstar stations.
Nexstar noted that no material service interruptions related to distribution agreements have occurred with its station group since 2005. After several extensions, Nexstar kept that streak alive last month after reaching a new retrans agreement with Dish Network that covered 45 markets and 60 stations.
