The Skinny

The retransmission whirlwind is heating up as 2022 comes to an end. Comcast struck a deal with Nexstar to keep its 90 stations in the operator’s lineup, but issues still loom between the two. Comcast has two pending FCC complaints that allege Nexstar failed to negotiate retrans consent in good faith and that it’s violating the 39% national broadcast ownership cap with NYC’s WPIX.
