G.E. Makes It Official: NBC Will Go to Comcast

After nearly nine months of negotiations, Comcast. the nation’s largest cable operator, announced an agreement on Thursday to acquire NBC Universal from the General Electric Company .

The deal valued NBC Universal at about $30 billion.

The agreement will create a joint venture, with Comcast owning 51 percent and G.E. owning 49 percent. Comcast will contribute to the joint venture its stable of cable channels, which includes Versus, the Golf Channel and E Entertainment, worth about $7.25 billion, and will pay G.E. about $6.5 billion in cash, for a total of $13.75 billion. For now, the network will remain NBC Universal, but ultimately Comcast could decide to change the name.

Almost immediately, the transaction reshapes the nation’s entertainment industry, giving a cable provider a huge portfolio of new content, even as it raises the sector’s anxieties about the future.

In a joint statement announcing the agreement. Brian L. Roberts, the chief executive of Comcast, said the deal was “a perfect fit for Comcast and will allow us to become a leader in the development and distribution of multiplatform ‘anytime, anywhere’ media that American consumers are demanding.” The deal’s genesis lies in frequent flirtations over the last several years between Comcast and General Electric, although serious talks began in March. For Comcast, the purchase is the realization of its long-held ambition to be a major producer of television shows and movies.

News of the negotiations broke in late September, and in the ensuing weeks G.E. worked to resolve details with Comcast, while simultaneously negotiating to buy out a 20 percent stake in NBC Universal held by Vivendi, the French telecommunications conglomerate. It was this last part that proved difficult. G.E. and Comcast’s part of the transaction has essentially been complete for weeks, but the final step was held up by the negotiations between G.E. and Vivendi. Vivendi will receive about $5.8 billion for its stake.

Jeff Zucker, the current head of NBC Universal, will stay on as chief executive and report to the chief operating officer of Comcast, Steve Burke. In a statement released by the companies Thursday morning, Mr. Zucker called the deal the “start of a new era” for NBC .

The deal could take up to 18 months to pass regulatory muster. Although Comcast is based in Philadelphia, NBC’s headquarters will remain in New York, the joint release said.

Most of NBC’s value is in its lucrative cable channels — USA, Bravo, SyFy, CNBC and MSNBC. These networks, along with the channels that Comcast will contribute to the joint venture, will compose 82 percent of the company’s cash flow. The NBC network and Universal Studios will account for only a small portion of the joint venture’s cash flow.

In some respects, G.E.’s decision to sell reflects a desire to exit a business that never quite meshed with its industrial side. “It’s something I always thought about,” said Jeffrey R. Immelt, G.E.’s chief executive, in an interview. “In some ways my thinking gets shaped by the totality of G.E.”

He said that the economic recession also affected his thinking, adding, “you never have an epiphany.”

NBC has been mired in fourth place among the major broadcast networks, and the economics of the broadcast television business has deteriorated in recent years amid declining overall ratings and a decline in advertising. By contrast, cable channels have continued to thrive because they rely on a steady stream of subscriber fees from cable companies like Comcast.

Mr. Roberts, the Comcast chief executive, failed in 2004 with a hostile takeover bid for the Walt Disney Company. Since then, the company has taken a less ambitious approach to content, buying a stake in MGM and building up smaller cable channels and regional sports networks. On Thursday, Mr. Roberts said, “I believe our company is strategically complete.”

Shortly after news of the deal leaked in September, G.E. and Comcast signed a standstill agreement, which effectively blocked other bidders from entering the fray. Previously, G.E. had sought to entice Time Warner. More recently Rupert Murdoch, who controls the News Corporation, considered making an offer for NBC Universal.

On Capitol Hill, a number of lawmakers said they would hold hearings to examine the deal in detail. Herb Kohl, Democrat of Wisconsin and the chairman of the Senate Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights Subcommittee, said he would convene a hearing about the deal “so that consumers can get a better sense of how this deal could affect their access to diverse programming and information, especially as they more often look to the Internet for such services.”

Michael J. Copps, a commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission who regularly opposes media consolidation, said in a statement that “every citizen has a stake here,” given the size of the combined entity. “The lodestar for this review must be the public interest,” he said.

Foreseeing a long regulatory fight, Comcast published a letter on Thursday that outlined commitments to enrich and extend programming for children and minority groups. It also said policies would remain in place to ensure independence for NBC’s news division.

Asked about the NBC broadcast network and its affiliate structure, Mr. Roberts said in an interview, “We’re committed to free, over-the-air broadcast television continuing.” But he and other Comcast executives acknowledged that broadcasters faced continuing threats to their business model.

Mr. Zucker reassured employees of NBC Universal that given the regulatory hurdles ahead, “for now, it remains business as usual.”

Mr. Immelt said G.E. may consult its future partners on occasion over certain deals. G.E. will still be managing the company when certain significant television rights deals come open for bid within the next year. Under G.E. NBC has become the exclusive rights holder to every summer Olympics since 1988 and every winter Olympics since 2002.

Referring to the coming games in Vancouver and London, which NBC already owns the rights to, Mr. Zucker said, “We’re excited for next year and 2012,” and stressed the company would remain in the bidding for the games in 2014 and 2016.

Mindful of past deals that failed on their promise of synergies, Comcast made sure to point out that the financial projections underlying the deal took no account of any potential cost savings from combining the various assets.

For the thousands of employees of both companies, that is good news. Comcast has about 100,000 employees, while NBC Universal employs about 30,000. Mr. Burke, the Comcast executive who will oversee the joint venture, said, “99.9 percent of those employees are in businesses that don’t overlap.”

Bill Carter and Brian Stelter contributed reporting.

Compare Cable Satellite TV Providers

Cable and satellite TV services can have different offers when it comes to channels, price, and service quality. And as a customer you may be very happy with one and very unhappy with the other. You should research both types of TV companies thoroughly before choosing cable over satellite (or vice versa).

With our comparison chart below, you can start to see the difference between cable and satellite TV providers, and how those differences will determine the price you pay.

Learn

Bundles

Bundles that include television service are offered by cable and phone companies. Since fiber-optic is only available in limited areas, the phone companies usually also offer a bundle where the TV component is delivered by a partner satellite TV company. In any case, bundling TV with some combination of home phone and Internet can yield monthly savings. Click below to see and compare bundle offers.

*Terms and conditions apply. See site for full details.

Cable TV vs Satellite TV

Because of the differences in technology, cable and satellite TV have some different capabilities and features. However, you will probably find that a number of the basic features are similar between the services.

What are the differences between cable TV and satellite TV? The main differences to compare between cable and satellite providers are:

Cable Television Companies

How Does Cable TV Work?

Cable TV depends on a network of fiber optic and trunk cables. These cables transmit TV shows to your TV as encrypted signals. So, cable TV transmits TV shows to your home through a physical connection made up of cables, while satellite TV uses a satellite and satellite dish to transmit shows as frequencies to your home.

Price Difference

Because of the differences in technology, cable can in some instances be more expensive than satellite service. For example, standard service starts at $29.99/month* with Time Warner Cable. By comparison, a digital package with the DISH with more channels costs $19.99/month* for the first 12 months.

Plan Variety

Cable companies are also less likely to offer you a lot of customization when you are choosing a TV service. For example, with Time Warner Cable, you have the choice between the standard TV or the expanded Preferred TV plans. Satellite TV companies usually give you a selection of 4 or more plans with a variety of channels and prices.

This means that you have access to a great level of variety and customization with satellite TV. However, both cable and satellite TV services only offer you a limited amount of control when it comes to choosing individual channels that you want to add to your plan.

Prices for premium channels are also similar: if you wanted to add HBO to your TV plan, it would cost $15.95/month extra with Time Warner Cable, and $19/month extra with DISH.

Cable Equipment and Technology

To use cable TV in your house, you will need to get a receiver which you connect to an outlet in your home through a series of cables and wires. Cable companies may offer promotional discounts on equipment, so look out for sales and special deals.

However, even with discounts, you will probably still need to pay some monthly fees for your equipment. For example, a cable box with Time Warner Cable costs $10.25/month with each additional receiver costing $11.75/month. Time Warner includes installation to two TVs with additional outlets costing $29.99 each.

Because cable TV relies on a physical connection of cables and wires, cable TV is much more durable than satellite TV in bad weather. It is fairly easy for a satellite to get knocked over or moved around in heavy wind and bad weather. Durable cables, on the other hand, are pretty resistant to bad weather.

Cable TV is fairly easy to install, but it can also be time-consuming. Cable companies will send someone to install the system of cables and cable boxes for you. However, these appointments can eat up a lot of time and cost extra. Cable companies generally don’t give a specific price quote for their installation services, but installation service can often run as high as $200 depending on the provider.

And you may end up spending all day on your installation appointment. When you make an installation appointment with a company, you pick a day and a range of times. The technician will arrive sometime in that range of hours. This means that you will need to be home during any given 4 or 5 hour period.

Some companies like XFINITY from Comcast give you the option to choose a self installation kit. Depending on your technical skills, this may save you time and money. So, if you think you can handle setting up the system on your own, you can avoid paying as much for an installation service from the company, and you can install the system on your own time whenever it is convenient for you.

It can also be difficult to get cable service in certain locations, especially in remote or mountainous locations. If your house isn’t very close to the nearest cable broadcast station, you could be out luck.

Satellite TV Providers

How Does Satellite TV Work?

When a satellite TV company wants to broadcast a TV show, the satellite company sends the show as encrypted data from their broadcast center to their satellite. The satellite then transmits the encrypted data to your satellite dish, and the dish in turn transmits the data to the receiver on your TV set.

Price of Satellite TV

As we said before, technological differences between cable and satellite TV service providers result in different prices. Satellite TV companies usually offer lower prices on comparable plans.

However, you should note that plans can get pretty expensive with satellite TV. Because satellite companies offer plans with more channels and features, prices can get very high. For example, the Premier Plan with DIRECTV costs $92.99/month for 285+ channels.

Plan Variety

Lots of people choose satellite TV because you can choose from a wider variety of shows and options than you can with cable TV. Again, plans with a lot of channels, features, and variety are more likely to be expensive. However, there are some cases in which you might really want a specific channel that a cable provider won’t have. For example, if you are from New York but you live in California, it might be easier to get Giants games with a satellite TV service than with a cable service.

Satellite TV Equipment and Technology

This technology eliminates some of the problems associated with cable TV. For example, because satellite TV doesn’t depend on physical cable connections, satellite service is available to a much wider range of customers. This means that satellite TV is available in most parts of the US, basically to anyone with a satellite dish, so some of the people in remote areas who can’t get cable TV can get satellite TV without issue.

Initial installation may be more expensive with satellite service than initial installation with cable TV. Satellite dishes can be costly, so if your plan doesn’t include a satellite dish and installation, you can end up paying a good deal extra for these services. However, a lot of companies will include a satellite dish and installation for no extra cost, so just be sure to read the fine print.

However, satellite TV doesn’t always work well; your dish has to sit outside which means that satellite TV service isn’t as weatherproof as cable TV service. Heavy wind may knock over or damage your satellite dish which will ruin your TV service.

Lots of satellite TV plans include a DVR or HD DVR which allows you to easily record shows, set parental controls, watch shows from any room, and access On Demand programs and movies. Cable companies may also offer your a free DVR when you buy a TV service plan. With both satellite and cable TV service providers, you will usually have to pay a monthly fee for the DVR even though the DVR itself is included at no extra cost. Service for a DVR costs around $10+/month with either cable or satellite service.
