NBC pulls out of Costa Rica starting Oct. 1

September 30, 2013

Major U.S. television network NBC has sent the order to all cable television companies in Costa Rica to terminate its programming signal.

Starting on Tuesday, Oct. 1, Cabletica, Tigo, Cable Vision, Claro TV and Telecable must stop broadcasting NBC, the local companies reported in a statement posted on their information channels on Monday.

The move was a unilateral decision by NBC, and efforts by local companies to negotiate a deal were unsuccessful.

NBC will be eliminated from both analog and digital systems in the country.
