Comcast Won’t Run ‘Sling TV’ Ads On Their Cable Networks

CES 2015 brought forth many innovative new products and services, but none had the most potential to change an industry like DISH's Sling TV platform. With the ability to stream live television from a number of popular channels on a multitude of devices for a small monthly fee, the service is an excellent alternative for cable cutters who don't want a traditional cable subscription.

Unfortunately, it seems the service is running into some issues with their marketing plans as NBC and other Comcast-owned TV networks are refusing to run ads promoting Sling TV in high market areas like San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. It seems Comcast has identified the potential threat an unconventional streaming service such as this could have on their customer base and is doing what they can to curb their growth.
