New York rap star 50 Cent doesn’t want people to lose their “Power” obsession. The hip-hop veteran and show executive producer has announced the series is possibly going to get dropped by TV provider Comcast Xfinity.
On Friday, the “Power” pages shared an urgent message from 50 for subscribers to tell the company to keep STARZ.
According to reports, failed negotiations between STARZ and Comcast Xfinity might ultimately keep “Power” from airing to millions of people.
Lionsgate-owned Starz has delivered another shot across the bow in its ongoing talks with Comcast, warning millions of Xfinity customers that they could lose access to the premium network on December 10. Comcast is the No. 1 U.S. cable operator, with most of its 21 million-plus subscribers coming via the Xfinity service. In a statement, Starz said it “has been working diligently to reach a fair market distribution agreement with Comcast.” The statement added, “months before our contract deadline and in spite of our best efforts to engage in meaningful discussions, Comcast has publicly stated their intention to drop our networks from all packages and bundles.” (Deadline)
A few days ago, 50 called “Power” the best show on TV right now.
