PHILADELPHIA — Comcast Corp., the nation’s largest cable television operator, said Thursday its first-quarter profits surged 80 percent, helped by a one-time gain from the dissolution of a joint venture with Time Warner Cable.
Comcast posted net income of $837 million, or 26 cents per share, in the quarter compared with $466 million, or 15 cents per share, in the same period a year ago.
