YouTube TV and NBCUniversal are still at odds in negotiations over a new contract that would allow NBC channels to remain on the Google-owned streaming service. The existing contract was set to expire at 12 am ET today, but the companies agreed to a short extension that prevents a blackout for now.

“NBCUniversal and YouTube TV have agreed to a short extension while parties continue talks. NBCUniversal will not go dark on YouTube TV at midnight eastern tonight,” NBC said in a statement provided to Ars last night.

NBC declined to say how long the extension is, and YouTube TV owner Google did not comment. About 15 NBC-owned channels and eight regional NBC Sports networks could still go dark on YouTube TV if the companies don’t agree on terms before the extension expires.
