Up until now, the American Health Networks have been known for offering the cheapest rates on the market for specialty channels, but they are also known for their long delays in the approval process and frequent outages.
However, Comcast’s acquisition of Time Warner is expected to help them make the network more responsive to consumers.
American Health is expected make a $100 million cash infusion to help it make up for some of the losses it suffered from the Comcast deal.
The company will also get the $200 million it expects to earn over the next two years from the merger.
Comcast will retain a 10% stake in American Health, which will pay the company a $20 million per year fee to stay on top of the network’s network traffic.
The remaining 60% of American Health will be paid by Time Warner Cable, a $25 million per month fee to be paid in the second half of 2018.
