CNN, TNT & other channel deals expiring on Comcast in Dec.

comcast-xfinity-logoComcast has a couple dozen programming contracts expiring in the month of December, including popular national networks such as CNN, CNN en Español, RTN, TNT and TruTV. On the local broadcast side, there are deals that need to be renewed with FOX (KAYU) Spokane, NBC (KVOA) Tucson, and NBC (KSBY) San Luis Obispo, among others.
