Adelphia Communications Corporation is a cable television company headquartered in Coudersport, Pennsylvania. Taking it's name from the defunct cable company of the same same, Adelphia is named after the Greek word αδελφοί adelphoi, meaning "Brothers." Adelphia is formed after the partnership between Island Television, Oakhurst Broadcasting, and Higgins Broadcasting. Adelphia was separate from the three companies, having it's own Board of Directors as well as having it's own set of stations. However,  Jan. 30, 2016, it was announced that Oakhurst, Higgins, and Island would merge into Adelphia, but before the merge happens (to coincide with FCC rules), the three companies would be selling off the stations, and Adelphia agreed that whichever stations are left of the three, the company will take over as owner. The transaction was successfully done on Sept. 10, 2016.
