Ion cuts carriage deal with Mediacom


Ion Media Networks announced a distribution agreement with Mediacom that includes not only the main Ion Television network (which is entitled to must carry in most markets, anyway), but also the entire suite of Ion programming channels. Those additional digital channels currently include the qubo network for kids and Ion Life, a health and wellness channel.

"Mediacom has made a major commitment to its cable customers, and we are excited to join with them to deliver our high-quality, family-friendly content to the communities they serve," said Brandon Burgess, President and CEO of Ion Media Networks.

Mediacom Communications is the nation’s 8th largest cable television company and one of the leading cable operators focused on serving the smaller cities and towns in the United States.
