ViacomCBS and Charter Communications have signed a new
multi-year distribution agreement for Charter to continue carrying ViacomCBS’
networks. The new deal will also include ViacomCBS’ streaming services
including Paramount+, Pluto TV, BET+ and Noggin for future distribution to
Spectrum customers.

“We are pleased to have reached a new deal to deliver ViacomCBS’ expansive portfolio of popular brands and premium programming for Spectrum audiences to enjoy, plus greater choice in how they consume our content,” said Ray Hopkins, President, U.S. Networks Distribution, ViacomCBS. “Charter is a valued partner, and we look forward to deepening our long-standing relationship.”

“These comprehensive agreements with ViacomCBS recognize the
fast-changing pace of the subscription video business and provide us the
flexibilities to adapt for the benefit of our customers while also furthering
our strategic interests in the advanced advertising realm and aggregated video
store concept with the addition of the streaming apps,” added Tom Montemagno,
Executive Vice President of Programming Acquisition for Charter.

Other terms of the agreement were not disclosed, so it isn’t
yet clear whether ViacomCBS’ services will be free or discounted for Spectrum
customers.
