Across the nation, channel blackouts are becoming more and more frequent as broadcasters and local cable operators, like Norvado, and national broadcast networks are unable to reach an agreement when negotiating the cost of retransmission consent fees. National broadcast networks are increasingly taking control over retransmission consent decisions and demanding a cut of local stations’ retransmission consent fees. If their demands are not met, they pull their signals from consumers, leaving you without your favorite programming indefinitely. And when those demands are met, it just results in higher prices for you.

Norvado continues to negotiate on the behalf of our customers to ensure our communities have access to the TV programming they want, at reasonable prices.
