(PHOENIX, AZ) – Cable ONE is losing all of its Viacom-affiliated channels. The company failed to reach an agreement with Viacom after seeking a price reduction over concerns about lower ratings. Channels like BET, Centric, and VH-1 have long struggled to stay afloat amid years of declining viewership. As a result, Viacom has charged cable providers extra for popular channels like MTV, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central. Cable ONE will replace the lost coverage with The Blaze, The Hallmark Channel, and National Geographic among several others.
