This agreement with the Comcast-owned entertainment company comes just a month after Cablevision struck a comprehensive deal with Disney — and pretty much locks up all of the major networks for now for the Long Island-based cable company. They say the NBCUniversal agreement lasts for several years (no details, though) and gives Cablevision “expansive rights to on-demand content from NBCUniversal’s cable and broadcast network portfolio, and access to live channels across multiple platforms, both in and out of the home.” Cablevision plans to introduce its out-of-home TV Everywhere service early next year. The deal covers NBCU-owned stations that broadcast NBC and Telemundo; basic cable networks including USA, CNBC, MSNBC, and Syfy; and Comcast Sports Network Philadelphia. Cablevision says the deal was done before late October when Mac Budill, who had been its EVP Programming, moved to NBCU to become president of TV Networks Distribution.
