Programming

NCTC negotiates master licensing agreements with content providers for more than 200 networks on behalf of our 750+ independent pay-TV and broadband provider members. We utilize our cumulative member buying power for the purposes of negotiating better terms with content providers than members may be able to achieve on their own. Through the aggregation of subscribers, NCTC creates efficiencies that benefit both our members and the content providers, leading to more competitive and cost-effective agreements.
