NBCUniversal First-Quarter Profit Rises Helped by Super Bowl, 'Fifty Shades'

Cable giant Comcast on Monday reported first-quarter results, including improved profitability figures for its entertainment arm NBCUniversal.
The entertainment company, led by CEO Steve Burke, recorded higher first-quarter operating cash flow, the profitability metric it uses, than in the year-ago period, which had benefited from the profitable Sochi Olympics. Amid the lack of Olympics revenue, NBCUniversal's quarterly revenue dropped in the latest quarter.
"We are off to a great start in 2015," said Roberts. First-quarter revenue at NBCUniversal dropped 4.0 percent to $6.6 billion.
