American Cable Systems
This article or section lacks a former logo at the moment. You can help Logopedia by uploading it here. Comcast was originally founded as American Cable Systems on June 28, 1963.
In 1969, American Cable Systems was renamed as Comcast, a portmanteau of the words "Communication" and "Broadcast".
A new logo for Comcast was unveiled on December 12, 1999, and was later rolled out in 2000.
A minor change was made to the 2000 logo's typeface in 2007.
Having purchased a 51% stake in NBCUniversal in 2011 and looking to revitalize their crippled brand, Comcast silently adopted the 1986 NBC peacock logo on December 10, 2012. In February 2013, just two months after the rebrand, Comcast announced that they would buy the remaining 49% of NBCUniversal from General Electric, and thus take full ownership of the company.
