TheBlaze Signs NCTC Distribution Pact

Glenn Beck's TheBlaze and The National Cable Television Cooperative said they have signed a multi-year distribution agreement that will make it easier for the NCTC's 850-plus cable company members to carry the news, entertainment and information channel. TheBlaze president of business development Lynne Costantini, a longtime distribution executive in the cable industry, said in a release: “We are pleased to begin a new agreement with NCTC. We look forward to a longstanding partnership and the opportunity to provide NCTC members access to TheBlaze’s original programming and independent voice for news and information.” 

TheBlaze launched initially on Dish Network in September 2012 (it recently renewed a carriage deal on that satellite-TV platform) and is also carried on Verizon FiOS TV (since this past December), Cablevision's Optimum TV, Suddenlink, RCN and Cable One.
