Company Profile

Thank you for your interest in the National Content and Technology Cooperative, Inc. (NCTC). NCTC is a Kansas-based, not-for-profit corporation that operates as a programming, broadband solutions and hardware purchasing organization for its member companies serving 40 million broadband and video customers throughout the U.S. and its territories. NCTC seeks to maximize current and future opportunities to ensure the profitability, competitive stature and long-term sustainability of its member companies. NCTC represents more than 700 independent cable and broadband operators across the U.S., in programming and technology acquisition. NCTC is actively engaged in helping network providers and suppliers evolve their business models to deploy new video/data solutions to match the changes in the media landscape.

The information requested is designed to address NCTC's basic requirements for partnerships. NCTC's review team evaluates the information provided based on the company's ability to, in part, add value to members, member demand, scalability, and capabilities to execute (financial, expertise, capacity, track record, etc.).

See below for a sampling of NCTC's review criteria:

  • The supplier has a proven track record and has proven ability in the marketplace.
  • Members supported/endorsed the offering. (NCTC does not typically prove out new technology or suppliers in the marketplace but can assist in growing scale on proven solutions).
  • Members demonstrate a need for the offering (i.e. offering is in a high frequency, strategic, and/or highly valued space).
  • Offering creates competition/choice in an area already addressed or fills a need not currently being met (i.e. better price model, better quality in service or product, more efficient or effective solution, better or more features).
  • NCTC members can realize value by leveraging the scale of the organization.
  • Offering scales down to meet the needs of operators under 1k subs.
