I think he meant NBS sports got the incentive from CT - I think I remember reading an article about that now that I think about it

Also didn't Cigna get some CT offering as well recently

While it is no doubt true that you have decades of tradition, things change a lot. Last year Youtube had $5.7 billion in revenue, while ABC had $5.9 billion in revenue.

The CEO of CBS is talking seriously again about pulling CBS off the air and distributing solely over the internet "over the top" as a pay station if Aereo wins the supreme court decision.

Look at NBCUniversal income statement. Cable networks have ten times the operational income as broadcast division. An analyst in 2010 valued NBC network at negative $600 million dollars.

Money talks. If all the profit comes from cable, you will inevitably get accountants looking at high cost operations in Manhattan that are full of history, but add little to the bottom line.

While a considerable number of NBC, and MSNBC shows are produced in NYC, could you imagine one day, Comcast moving all productions to Philadelphia?

While I don't see that being very likely, I do think that it would be cool if that happened. Like, you would turn on the Today show during the summer to view performances and Philly was on the TV screen. But since this city is less iconic than NYC is I could imagine these shows actually losing viewers because people are like: "oh, isn't this the most muderous city in America?" or "isn't this the city where that woman had her boyfriend shoot in the bus?" instead of the thoughts they have for New York like: "Isn't this where the statue of liberty is located?" and "isn't this like the biggest city in America?".

According to Comcast's annual report (2012) operational costs for filmed entertainment and broadcast television are extremely high, while they are considerably lower for cable and theme parks.

98.47% Filmed Entertainment
95.47% Broadcast Television (NBC and minor Telemundo)
62.48% Cable Networks belonging to Universal (15 networks)
54.29% Theme Parks ( primarily of our Universal theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood )

NBCUniversal's 15 cable networks
  1. USA Network
  2. Syfy
  3. E!
  4. CNBC
  5. MSNBC
  6. Bravo
  7. Golf Channel
  8. Oxygen
  9. NBC Sports Network
  10. Style
  11. G4
  12. Chiller
  13. CNBC World
  14. Cloo
  15. Universal HD

As in Sony Corporation, sooner or later a billionaire looks at that huge disparity and questions it loudly and publicly.

The News/Entertainment networks will stay in Manhattan where they belong.

I was optimistic that the National NBC Sports Network would find its way to the Philadelphia region. Thats the one segment of NBC programming that should have been brought here.This is a die hard sports region and a much better home for sports programming than Connecticut. And it would have helped even out the heavy NYC-Bos influence that ESPN spouts.


Nothing else really makes sense for Philadelphia . Golf Channel belongs in a warm climate(Fla), the movie/tv Channel offices belong in LA.

Could you elaborate? I think you're excellent at making up scenarios and then guessing how imaginary people with learning disabilities would react to them. How would someone react to the Today show being filmed in Topeka for example?

although I think his examples are far too extreme, he still does have a point that NY generally has greater mass appeal for a national broadcast.

You are so cynical it's ridiculous. You call anyone that doesn't agree with you "stupid" or you tell them how "you seem to...". You do NOT know me on a personal level, therefore you have no right to tell me what my habits are and what I seem to do. Okay, my example was a bit extreme, maybe I could have thought it out more...still does not give you right to call out any of my character and tell me how I have a tendency to do anything when you don't know me.

I seriously hate when people on the internet think they can judge others and tell them about their character traits. I am a completely different person in formal writing and my day to day interactions with other people and I would appreciate it if you kept your "conclusions" to yourself.

You can go find some examples of me "making up scenarios and then guessing how imaginary people with disabilities would react to them" and bring them here, since I make soo many of them you had to tell me.
