Revenue. For the second quarter of 2012, Cable revenue increased 6.0% to $9.9 billion compared to $9.3 billion in the second quarter of 2011.

Operating Cash Flow. For the second quarter of 2012, Cable operating cash flow increased 5.5% to $4.1 billion compared to $3.9 billion in the second quarter of 2011, reflecting higher revenue offset primarily by increases in video programming as well as sales and marketing to support growth and enhance our competitive position in both residential and business services.

Pro forma NBCUniversal results are presented as if the NBCUniversal transaction, which closed on January 28, 2011, and the Universal Orlando transaction, which closed on July 1, 2011, were effective on January 1, 2010.

Revenue for NBCUniversal decreased 0.8% to $5.5 billion in the second quarter of 2012 compared to last year's second quarter reflecting the impact on our Cable Networks and Broadcast Television segments from a content licensing agreement signed in the second quarter of 2011 and underperformance in our Filmed Entertainment segment. Operating Cash Flow decreased 15.4% to $982 million compared to $1.2 billion in the second quarter of 2011 reflecting the decrease in revenue as well as higher programming investments.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, NBCUniversal revenue increased 7.8% to $11.0 billion. Excluding $259 million of revenue related to the Super Bowl in the first quarter of 2012, revenue increased 5.2%.

Cable Networks

For the second quarter of 2012, revenue from the Cable Networks segment increased 3.6% to $2.3 billion compared to $2.2 billion in the second quarter of 2011, driven by a 6.8% increase in distribution revenue and a 4.1% increase in advertising revenue, partially offset by lower revenue from a content licensing agreement signed in the second quarter of 2011. Operating cash flow decreased 6.8% to $788 million compared to $846 million in the second quarter of 2011, reflecting higher programming and production costs, primarily due to increased investment in original programming and higher NHL and NBA programming costs.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, revenue from the Cable Networks segment increased 4.7% to $4.4 billion compared to $4.2 billion in 2011. Operating cash flow decreased 4.2% to $1.6 billion compared to $1.7 billion in the first six months of 2011.

For the second quarter of 2012, revenue from the Broadcast Television segment decreased 9.1% to $1.5 billion compared to $1.7 billion in the second quarter of 2011, reflecting lower revenue from a content licensing agreement signed in the second quarter of 2011. Operating cash flow increased 2.7% to $196 million compared to $190 million in the second quarter of 2011, reflecting improved performance at the owned local stations, partially offset by increased investment in programming.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, revenue from the Broadcast Television segment increased 11.3% to $3.4 billion compared to $3.0 billion in 2011. Excluding the impact of the Super Bowl in the first quarter of 2012, revenue increased 2.8%.

Filmed Entertainment

For the second quarter of 2012, revenue from the Filmed Entertainment segment decreased 1.8% to $1.2 billion compared to $1.3 billion in the second quarter of 2011, primarily reflecting lower theatrical and stage plays revenue, partially offset by higher content licensing revenue. In the second quarter of 2012, the Filmed Entertainment segment generated an operating cash flow loss of $83 million compared to operating cash flow of $27 million in the second quarter of 2011, primarily driven by the underperformance of Battleship.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, revenue from the Filmed Entertainment segment increased 8.7% to $2.4 billion compared to $2.2 billion in 2011. Operating cash flow was a loss of $77 million compared to a loss of $119 million in the first six months of 2011.

3 We define Free Cash Flow as Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities (as stated in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows) reduced by capital expenditures, cash paid for intangible assets and cash distributions to noncontrolling interests; and adjusted for any payments and receipts related to certain nonoperating items, net of estimated tax benefits. We do not present Free Cash Flow on a pro forma basis.
