Send Us 'Blue Book' Data


New York— Once again this year, Multichannel News will distribute Blue Book, the anthology of cable-industry data and analysis, at the National Cable & Telecommunications Association's National Show, taking place June 8 to 11 in Chicago.

Blue Book will offer subscriber counts on the top 100 industry operators, as well as all programming services.

In order to insure as accurate a result as possible, we request that operators and programmers send us their latest subscriber statistics as soon as possible.

From each operator, we're looking for the latest basic subscriber count, and the date the number was compiled.

From programmers, we request the following information: number of cable system affiliates, number of cable subscribers, number of alternative distribution subscribers (largely direct-broadcast satellite) and total subscribers. Also, the satellite transponder position (or positions) through which the service is distributed.

Please send the information via e-mail by May 15 to Please call Simon Applebaum at 646-746-6539 for further information.
