The companies say that they have a “multi-year affiliation agreement” that includes all of NBCUniversal‘s broadcast and cable properties as well as “expansive rights to carry the Olympic Games.” In addition, Mediacom‘s 1M video subscribers can access content on-demand, as well as some unspecified live channels “across multiple platforms, both in and out of the home across the U.S.” NBCU “wants to ensure Mediacom’s customers can experience its award-winning programming whenever and wherever they want,” EVP Content Distribution Matt Bond says. The Comcast-controlled entertainment company recently made similar deals with Cablevision, Suddenlink and Verizon.
