TV channel Russia Today (RT) expelled from 2 networks broadcasting in the United States — Spectrum and Comcast Chicago. As reported by the website of the channel, the coverage area of these networks covering the new York, new Jersey, San Diego and Los Angeles (CA), and Chicago (Il).

So, Spectrum, included in the company Charter Communications, September 1 refused to renew the contract for broadcasting RT. As explained in the company, with the development of Internet has become impractical to provide services for the dissemination of TV signals.

In turn, Comcast in Chicago said that made the decision, guided by the law on the powers of the national security of the United States. The John McCain amendment to the act allows companies without explanation to refuse to broadcast content, which is under the control of the Russian government or funded.

«It is clear that in relation to RT continue to apply discriminatory measures that seriously complicate our work,» — commented the Deputy chief editor of the RT, Anna Belkina.
