The Black News Channel is Now Available to Spectrum TV Viewers Across the Country

Tallahassee, Florida – September 14, 2020 – The Black News Channel (BNC), the nation’s only culturally specific 24/7 news network that reflects the Black community’s diverse viewpoints, can now be seen in even more Spectrum TV markets across the country. When BNC launched on February 20, 2020, Spectrum TV was an early partner in sharing BNC’s innovative, inspirational, educational, and empowering programming with viewers in larger markets, including New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas. With this exciting announcement of even wider distribution, the Black News Channel is now available to customers throughout Spectrum’s 41-state footprint who have Spectrum TV Silver, Digi Tier 1 or Spectrum Lifestyle.

“Spectrum TV has been a fantastic partner to BNC from the beginning. Their dedication to our success has been clear from our launch to expanded distribution, and co-sponsoring launch events across the nation,” shared BNC President/CEO, Princell Hair. “And their commitment to support the news and stories about the Black community not always covered by other networks is real.”

“Expanding distribution of Black News Channel across all our markets will further advance our efforts to provide authentic and diverse programming options and offer a channel lineup reflective of our customers’ diverse interests and communities where we live and work,” said Tom Montemagno, Executive Vice President of Programming Acquisition for Charter Communications, Inc., which operates the Spectrum brand of TV, Internet and Voice services.

BNC has provided extended Prime News reporting on the devastating health and economic impact of COVID-19 on America, in-depth coverage of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, and the 2020 presidential race;(click here for promo) all with a particular focus of the impact on the Black community. By providing context and focusing on many of the stories not always featured on other news channels, BNC continues to progress as a credible source of news and information.
