Ogsadas network is one of the oldest and largest cable television networks in the United States, with more than 60 million subscribers and a cable channel that airs in more than 200 countries.
Ogsada, which is owned by AT&T, had not previously announced a deal with the Trump administration to acquire Ogsadas cable channel.
But on Wednesday, the company said it was in talks to acquire the network, which has an estimated 10 million subscribers.
“We are working with the Ogsads to acquire a cable network,” Ogsadia said in a statement.
“While the negotiations are ongoing, we look forward to working with OGsades to continue to provide our viewers and viewers in other countries with a compelling entertainment experience.”
AT&t said the deal would bring “broadcast content from the world’s leading providers to viewers across the country.”
The network also offers cable programming from the likes of Discovery Channel, ABC Family, ESPN, TBS, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. TV.
AT&ts spokesman Jonathan Greenblatt said in an email that the network would remain independent and that it would remain a free-to-air television network.
Ogadas network has about 1.5 million subscribers, according to Nielsen.
AT+1 and other media companies have expressed interest in the network.
ATs latest bid for Ogsade is expected to be announced later this week.
A deal could also mean more competition in the cable business for cable operators, who are struggling to keep up with the cable networks that compete with their programming.
OGsadas has a large viewership in the U.S., but that is increasingly becoming less of an issue.
The cable networks are increasingly taking over the cable channels that are traditionally carried by TV stations in rural areas and the urban core.
Ogbases ratings are up from a year ago, but are still far below the networks of the major cable companies.
AT Plus, the cable company owned by Verizon, has a 30% share of the cable market.
