Which sports have the best deals for NBC Sports subscribers?
By Andrew SeidelCNN|August 10, 2018 06:28:33″We are looking at ways to expand our content offerings,” the company said in a statement.
“We are currently working on a new content strategy, which we expect to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.
The launch of our new NBC Sports channel will allow us to further expand our reach, including reaching more customers on a national basis.”
The deal, first reported by CNBC and The Wall Street Journal, comes after NBC was forced to shut down its own channel, NBCSN, in 2016 after nearly a decade of dominance.
In an interview with CNBC’s “Power Lunch,” NBC Sports CEO Steve Bornstein said the company had “many conversations” about how to expand its offerings.
“I think the most important thing we’ve learned is that there is no one way to go,” he said.
“You can’t just go in and have a network that is going to be dominant for the next 20 years, that’s going to continue to dominate for the same amount of time that you’re going to dominate.”
