It’s 1984. Detroit Tigers win the World Series. Oakland Raiders win Super Bowl XVIII. Incumbent President Ronald Reagan carries 49 of the 50 states to win a second term as President. The average cable customer had no more than 53 channels. NCTC was founded by 12 members of the Mid-America Cable Association on the premise that rate savings could be achieved by aggregating their cable subscribers.
Fast forward to today, NCTC has managed to help over 750 different independent cable companies connect with great programming networks and leading technology companies to offer their subscribers exceptional cable and broadband services.
With 55 employees and two offices, NCTC continues to provide our members and partners the connections to succeed in this rapidly changing environment. We have explored new partnerships and developed platforms that allow our members to bring the best of service to their subscribers. Guided by a diverse board of directors, NCTC brings our members and partners the best in customer service while fostering connections that create value for all.
What We Do:
30 Years of Trusted Partnerships:
Working on behalf of more than 750 independent operators, we negotiate master licensing agreements with content providers for over 200 networks. These pre-negotiated agreements give our members access to content efficiently, and with better terms. We secure the best possible pricing and terms from trusted technology providers and hardware vendors, providing access to the equipment and services our members need to thrive in the video and broadband markets. Content providers and technology vendors enjoy streamlined negotiations for master agreements, covering hundreds of cable companies.
Our secure web portal includes a suite of custom applications to support network launches, subscriber reporting, equipment purchasing, online invoices, and remittances. Operators value the convenience of paying one monthly invoice that covers most, if not all, of their programming license fees, as well as streamlined invoicing for hardware and technology purchases. Content providers appreciate the efficiency of aggregated subscriber reporting and payments. Vendors value our prompt, streamlined payment and collections processes covering hundreds of operators.
