Members save the time, effort and expense of no longer needing to negotiate their own agreements for the networks available through NCTC. Members also enjoy the convenience of paying for all programming under NCTC agreements through a single NCTC invoice. Members pay a one-time fee to join and currently pay no annual dues.
Programmers gain the efficiency of negotiating one contract with NCTC rather than individual contracts with over 950 member companies. In addition, NCTC pays the programmers each month with one check and provides full billing details for each member company and their cable systems.
Hardware companies can secure uniform terms and conditions with NCTC rather than negotiating terms conditions with over 950 member companies. In addition, NCTC collects and pays the hardware invoices on behalf of member companies, reducing hassle for our hardware partners.
NCTC provides our programming, hardware and resource partners with marketing support and the opportunity to be a part of our membership conferences.
