Comcast Corporation

We are a global media and technology company with two primary businesses, Comcast Cable and NBCUniversal. Comcast was incorporated under the laws of Pennsylvania in 2001, and through its predecessors, has developed, managed and operated cable systems since 1963. In 2011, we closed the NBCUniversal transaction in which we acquired control of the businesses of NBCUniversal, and in 2013, we acquired GE’s remaining 49% common equity interest in NBCUniversal. We present our operations for Comcast Cable in one reportable business segment, referred to as Cable Communications, and our operations for NBCUniversal in four reportable business segments.

Cable Communications: Consists of the operations of Comcast Cable, which is the nation’s largest provider of video, high-speed Internet and voice services (“cable services”) to residential customers under the XFINITY brand, and we also provide similar services to businesses and sell advertising.

Cable Networks: Consists primarily of our national cable networks, our regional sports and news networks, our international cable networks, and our cable television production operations.

Broadcast Television: Consists primarily of the NBC and Telemundo broadcast networks, our 10 NBC and 17 Telemundo owned local broadcast television stations, and our broadcast television production operations.

Filmed Entertainment: Consists primarily of the studio operations of Universal Pictures, which produces, acquires, markets and distributes filmed entertainment worldwide.

Theme Parks: Consists primarily of our Universal theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood.

The Cable Networks, Broadcast Television, Filmed Entertainment and Theme Parks segments comprise the NBCUniversal

Customer and Technical Service

We service our customers through local, regional and national call and technical centers. Generally, our call centers provide 24-hour per day, 7-day per week call answering capability, telemarketing and other services. Our technical services function performs various tasks, including cable installations, transmission and distribution plant maintenance, plant upgrades and other customer service related activities. In 2003, we opened new call centers and expanded certain of our existing call centers to provide customer service and support to the cable systems acquired in the Broadband acquisition.

Sales and Marketing

Our sales efforts are primarily directed toward generating incremental revenues in our franchise areas and increasing the number of subscribers we serve. We sell our products and services through:


direct mail advertising,

door-to-door selling,

cable television advertising,

local media advertising, and

retail outlets.


Video Services

Our cable systems compete with a number of different sources that provide news, information and entertainment programming to consumers, including:

program distributors that use direct broadcast satellite, or DBS, systems that transmit satellite signals containing video programming, data and other information to receiving dishes of varying sizes located on the subscribers premises,

local television broadcast stations that provide off-air programming which can be received using an antenna and a television set, as well as broadcast digital subscription services that can be received by a special set-top box,

satellite master antenna television systems, commonly known as SMATVs, that generally serve condominiums, apartment and office complexes, and residential developments,

other operators who build and operate wireline communications systems in the same communities that we serve, including those operating as franchised cable operations or under

an alternative regulatory scheme known as Open Video Systems, or OVS,

interactive online computer services, including Internet distribution of movies,

newspapers, magazines and book stores,

movie theaters,

live concerts and sporting events, and

video stores and home video products.

In recent years, Congress has enacted legislation and the FCC has adopted regulatory policies intended to provide a favorable operating environment for existing competitors and for potential new competitors to our cable systems. The FCC has recently created a new wireless service, known as Multichannel Video Distribution and Data Service, or MVDDS, that we also expect to compete with our cable systems. In order to compete effectively, we strive to provide, at a reasonable price to subscribers, new products and services, superior technical performance and customer service, and a greater variety of video programming.

DBS Systems. According to recent government and industry reports, conventional, medium and high-power satellites currently provide video programming to over 20 million customers in the United States. DBS providers with high-power satellites typically offer to their subscribers more than 300 channels of programming, including programming services substantially similar to those our cable systems provide. Two companies, DIRECTV and EchoStar, provide service to substantially all of these DBS subscribers.

DBS service can be received throughout the continental United States through a small roof top or side-mounted outside antenna. DBS systems use video compression technology to increase channel capacity and digital technology to improve the quality and quantity of the signals transmitted to their subscribers. Our digital cable service is competitive with the programming, channel capacity and the digital quality of signals delivered to subscribers by DBS systems.

Federal legislation establishes, among other things, a permanent compulsory copyright license that permits DBS systems to retransmit local broadcast television signals to subscribers who reside in the local television station's market. These companies are currently transmitting local broadcast signals in most markets that we currently serve. Additionally, federal law generally provides DBS systems with access to all cable-affiliated video programming services delivered by satellite. As a result, satellite carriers are competitive to cable system operators like us because they offer programming that closely resembles what we offer. These satellite carriers are attempting to expand their service offerings to include, among other things, high-speed Internet service, and are entering marketing arrangements in which their service is promoted and sold by local exchange carriers.

SMATV. Our cable systems also compete for subscribers with SMATV systems. SMATV system operators typically are not subject to regulation like local franchised cable system operators. SMATV systems offer subscribers both improved reception of local television stations and many of the same satellite-delivered programming services offered by franchised cable systems. In addition, some SMATV operators are offering packages of telephony, data and video services to private residential and commercial developments. SMATV system operators often enter into exclusive service agreements with building owners or homeowners' associations, although some states have enacted laws to provide cable systems access to these complexes.

Overbuilds. We operate our cable systems pursuant to a non-exclusive franchise that is issued by the community's governing body such as a city council, a county board of supervisors or, in some cases, by a state regulatory agency. Federal law prohibits franchising authorities from unreasonably denying requests for additional franchises, and it permits franchising authorities to operate cable systems. Companies that traditionally have not provided cable services and that have substantial financial resources (such as public utilities that own certain of the poles to which our cables are attached) may also obtain cable franchises and may provide competing communications services. These and other wireline communications systems offer cable and other communications services in various areas where we hold franchises. We anticipate that facilities-based competitors will develop in other franchise areas that we serve.

High-Speed Internet Services

Most of our cable systems offer high-speed Internet services within their service areas. These systems compete with a number of other companies, many of whom have substantial resources, including:

local telephone companies, such as Verizon Communications, Inc., SBC Communications, Inc., BellSouth Corporation and Qwest Communications International, Inc.,

existing ISPs, such as America Online, Earthlink, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation, and

long distance telephone companies, such as AT&T Corp. and Sprint Corporation.

Phone Services

Our traditional circuit-switched local service competes against incumbent local exchange carriers, cellular telephone service providers, competitive local exchange carriers (including established long distance companies) and VoIP service providers. Many telecommunications carriers are expanding their offerings to include high-speed Internet service, such as DSL. The incumbent local exchange carriers have substantial capital and other resources, longstanding customer relationships, extensive existing facilities and network rights-of-way. A few competitive local exchange carriers also have existing local networks and significant financial resources.


We have made investments in national cable television networks and other regional programming-related enterprises as a means of generating additional revenues and subscriber interest.

Consolidated Programming Investments

Our programming investments are comprised of the following:

E! Entertainment Television, Style Network, The Golf Channel, Outdoor Life Network and G4 are our 24-hour national cable television networks. These networks provide programming dedicated to a variety of special interests.

Comcast Spectacor is our group of businesses that perform live sporting events and that own or manage facilities and venues for sports activities, sports events, concerts and other special events. It consists principally of the Philadelphia Flyers NHL hockey team, the Philadelphia 76ers NBA basketball team and two large multi-purpose arenas in Philadelphia.

Comcast SportsNet, Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, Cable Sports Southeast and CN8-The Comcast Network are our 24-hour, regional programming-related enterprises that provide programming principally to support our cable networks.

Jacksam Corporation

Jacksam Corporation Plunges into Financial Turmoil with -72.561% Revenue Decrease in Q2 2023

Financial News Report: Broadcasting Media and Cable TV Company Faces Disastrous Q2 2023
In the recent financial report, Broadcasting Media and Cable TV company, Jacksam Corporation (JKSM), disclosed a disastrous performance for the period of April to June 30, 2023. The company experienced a significant decrease in revenue of -72.561% to $0.40 million compared to the same quarter a year earlier. Additionally, the net deficit per share has swelled to $-0.02, highlighting the challenges the company currently faces.
This drop in revenue stands in stark contrast to the rest of the Broadcasting Media and Cable TV industry, which recorded a 0.49% growth in revenue during the second quarter of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. This suggests that the challenges faced by Jacksam Corporation may be specific to the company rather than industry-wide.

Goliath Film And Media Holdings

Goliath Film And Media Holdings Outshines Competitors, Reports Promising Growth Despite Operating Deficit

In the fast-paced and ever-evolving world of the Broadcasting Media and Cable TV sector, it is always intriguing to closely analyze the financial results of key players in the industry. Today, Goliath Film And Media Holdings (GFMH) has disclosed its operating deficit for the first quarter of 2024, and it is evident that the present performance has outshined the corresponding period from the previous year.
For the fiscal period between May and July 2023, numerous corporations have announced their earnings, but it is the numbers from GFMH that have caught the attention of industry observers. With an operating deficit of $-0.010817 million, it is clear that GFMH has encountered some challenges during the quarter. However, it is worth noting that this performance improvement may be a result of the company's continued focus on development and growth.

The Marquie Group Inc

The Marquie Group Inc. Accelerates Revenue Growth, Surpasses $0 Million Mark in Q2 2023!

The financial results of The Marquie Group Inc (TMGI) for the period March to May 31, 2023, have presented an interesting scenario. While the company reported a zero gain per share, unchanged revenue, and a net deficit, there are several factors that warrant further examination. This article will delve into the implications of these financial results and speculate on how they may impact the company going forward.
1. Stagnant Gain per Share and Revenue:
Within the March to May 31, 2023 interval, TMGI's gain per share remained at $0.00, which was the same as a year ago and previous reporting season. Similarly, the company's revenue showed no change, remaining at $0.00 million compared to a year ago and sequentially. This suggests a lack of growth potential in terms of profitability and top-line revenue.

Liberty Global Plc

Liberty Global Plc turns the tide in Q2 2023 with reduced losses, despite revenue decline

Liberty Global Plc, a leading international telecommunications and television company, has reported its most recent fiscal period results, showing a decrease in losses compared to the previous year. However, the company also experienced a decrease in revenue and a significant net deficit.
During the most recent fiscal period, Liberty Global Plc reported losses of $1.13 per share, a decrease from $5.47 per share in the previous year. On the other hand, the company's earnings per share (EPS) improved from $1.59 per share in the prior reporting period. This indicates that while the losses have increased, there has been some improvement in the company's financial performance.

Aura Fat Projects Acquisition Corp

Aura Fat Projects Acquisition Corp Defies Industry Norms with Revenue Surge, Despite Q2 Performance Dip

Aura Fat Projects Acquisition Corp (AFARU) is a lesser-known entity in the Broadcasting Media and Cable TV industry. While large companies in this industry dominate the market and receive significant attention, AFARU is making its mark with its recent financial results. In the second quarter of 2023, AFARU announced an operating deficit of $-0.604307 million. While this may seem concerning at first glance, investors are optimistic about the company's future potential for additional revenue streams.
The shareholders of AFARU are less interested in the current productivity improvement of the Broadcasting Media and Cable TV industry. Instead, they are focused on the company's ability to generate new sources of income as soon as possible. Despite the operating deficit, AFARU managed to improve its bottom-line performance significantly. In the second quarter of 2022, the company reported a loss of $-0.101 million. However, in the same quarter of 2023, AFARU achieved a bottom-line profit of $0.822 million. This significant progress demonstrates the company's potential for growth and profitability.
