Comcast saves space on its digital lineup for Asian-American network

Comcast has agreed to place English language Asian-American network Mnet on its D1 digital tier in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Sacramento by Sept. 1, 2011.

The station placement is "part of our corporate commitment, made in connection with our NBCUniversal acquisition and reflected in our agreements with leading diversity organizations and the FCC to continue expanding distribution of content by and for diverse populations," said David Jensen, vice president of content acquisition for Comcast in a news release.

Mnet said it airs "a variety of programming that plays to the influence of K-pop music as well as anime, horror, drama and all facets of a style of popular culture that has steadily been growing in popularity not only through Asia but into America and around the world."
