WXEL Wants to Renegotiate WTVJ Signal Conflict Settlement

3

The new owners of PBS affiliate WXEL want to renegotiate their signal inteference settlement with WTVJ according to the Palm Beach Post.

In 2002 NBC agreed to pay WXEL $6.4 million dollars spread out over 15 years because of WTVJ’s signal conflict. But in July 2012 WXEL got sold and the new owners had to borrow $1.5 million to complete the deal. They would now rather NBC/WTVJ pay out the remaining $1.4 million from the signal conflict settlement in one lump sum so they can cover the loan and save on interest.

  1. Comcast’s response should be: Hell No! This isn’t Comcast’s/NBCUniversal’s problem, so therefore they have no obligation to do anything.
