Oct 11 (Reuters) - Viacom Inc, the owner of MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon, said on Wednesday it was unable to come to a distribution deal with Charter Communications as part of its ongoing negotiations with the cable television distributor.
Charter’s Spectrum subscribers may see a disruption in service, Viacom said in a statement.
Earlier this year, Charter moved Viacom’s flagship networks to its most expensive programming tier, a move that threatened the media company’s affiliate and advertising revenue.
A spokesman for Charter did not immediately return calls outside of business hours. (Reporting by Tamara Mathias in Bengaluru; Editing by Jonathan Oatis)
