In a statement released by NBC Universal to the press, it seems that the company is warning its YouTube subscribers that they may no longer be able to access their channels on YouTube TV in the future. This is apparently due to a contract dispute between the company and Google in which if the contract between both companies is terminated, it could mean the loss of NBC’s various channels on YouTube TV.
This would affect as many as 14 different channels which include NBC, SyFy, USA, Bravo, and Telemundo, just to name a few. According to the statement, “Unfortunately, Google is refusing to make a deal at these fair rates and is willing to withhold entertainment, news and sports programming from their paying customers. NBCUniversal feels a responsibility to inform our fans that they are at risk of losing their favorite shows if Google continues with their demands.”
NBC Universal has also since directed users to a website where they can learn more about the dispute (from their perspective) and also let them know the various actions and steps they can take to hopefully prevent this from happening.
