The National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC), a group of small cable companies and cable providers, had been suing Comcast for violating their longterm agreement as Comcast had demanded that cable providers distribute their OLN channel to at least 40% of their subscribers or they would block out NHL hockey games.
