How to keep up with shows or channels NBCU has suspended

Learn ways to watch your favorite shows and channels.

Our goal is to provide you with the best in entertainment at a good value. Unfortunately, NBCUniversal chose to suspend its content while we’re still working to finalize a renewal. We understand your frustration, appreciate your patience, and hope to restore your missing channels as soon as possible.

Here are some answers to questions you may have.

Why did this happen?

When our contracts for local stations and national channels are about to expire, we work with the owners (NBCUniversal in this case) to negotiate renewal agreements. Our goal is to make sure you can watch what you want, when you want, and choose from a wide variety of high-quality content. You deserve the convenience of receiving any NBCUniversal program you care about through your TV service without your future rates going up unnecessarily.

Why shouldn't I just disconnect my account and go somewhere else?
