Local Broadcast Channel Status

Keeping channels on and costs in check.

Atlantic Broadband works in good faith to negotiate fair contracts with national broadcast groups (e.g. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CW) in order to continue to bring our customers local broadcast channels.

Atlantic Broadband is fully prepared to pay a fair market price for these local stations. However, recent proposals from these broadcast groups have included unprecedented price increases over prior years—over 600% in some cases—which ultimately increases the amount customers pay to watch TV.

We will continue to work diligently to renew our agreements with these broadcast groups without disruption to our customers. In the meantime, we invite you to visit TV On My Side and the American Cable Association to find out more about these issues.
