Comcast says it will close one of three national sports networks operated under its NBC Universal subsidiary brand.
“Sweeping” and “significant” layoffs are expected across NBC’s networks, sources told the New York Post.
Rick Cotton, a former executive with Comcast’s NBCUniversal, is in quarantine this week after being diagnosed with the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
On Monday, a CNBC reporter said NBCUniversal dropped a small hint about how it views the future profitability of its forthcoming streaming service Peacock.
NBC’s new streaming service may be free for most TV viewers who agree to sit through a few ads every hour, according to a reliable report.
