Charter Communications phasing out original-content wing

Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR) is scrapping its initiatives for original programming, shutting down Spectrum Originals and refocusing those efforts. That brings an end to a four-year-plus attempt to push into Charter's own scripted shows, to help hold back the tide of cable departures due to cord-cutting. The move isn't too surprising as Spectrum Originals champion Katherine Pope, who launched and led the unit, elected last month to depart for a role as president of Sony Pictures Television Studios. Shutting it down will require a phase-out as there are a number of series in Spectrum's development pipeline that will need to be scheduled and routed somewhere. Some may yet air on Spectrum, Deadline Hollywood reported, while others may revert to producers so they can find new homes. A new approach from Charter was signaled by its team-up with rival Comcast on a platform it hopes will be a leading aggregator of streaming video.

Cableco Charter hit with $7B penalty in Texas murder case

Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR) has been hit with an eye-popping $7B penalty from a Dallas County, Texas, jury in a case involving a robbery/murder committed by a Spectrum field technician. The 2019 case involved the robbery and murder of an 83-year-old customer by an employee, and the jury has found Charter liable in the case. The company had already received a penalty of more than $300M in compensatory damages; the much bigger $7B penalty has come in the punishment phase of the trial. The jury found gross negligence by the company in making the award. The former technician pleaded guilty to the December 2019 murder of 83-year-old Betty Thomas, and Charter was involved via a civil suit. A Dallas jury found Charter 90% responsible for the death. The victim's family claimed "systemic safety failures," saying that Charter got rid of an employee screening program in place at Time Warner Cable when Charter acquired that cableco.
