Barnesville Cable TV, like 835 smaller Cable TV companies across the United States, is a member of the National Cable TV Cooperative (NCTC). On our behalf, NCTC works to negotiate better prices for programming contracts. We were recently informed that Discovery Networks is asking for a contract increase that is 20 times the rate of inflation beginning on January 1, 2015. Discovery Networks owns American Heroes Channel, The Hub, Animal Planet, Investigation Discovery, Destination America, TLC, Discovery Channel, Oprah Winfrey Network, Discovery Fit & Health, Science Channel and Velocity. Please be advised that we will do everything we can to fight these increases. For more information on contract negotiations go to www.tvonmyside.com.
