The company said the deal is expected to reduce Outdoor’s sub fee revenue initially but lead to higher fees over the 5-year term. — Without citing a reason, Comcast withdrew its offer to acquire certain MD assets of Broadstripe, formerly Millennium Digital Media. The deal was to affect 40K cable subs in the state’s Anne Arundel County, just south of Baltimore. Broadstripe pres/CEO Bill Shreffler said the MSO plans to retain and upgrade the system. — Comcast added TBS and CNN in HD in MA and most of NH. — Cox dialed up Pivot in northern VA, the MSO’s 6th market to receive the mobile service.
