NFL And Comcast Reach Deal

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Ask and you shall receive. Just as I was posting the Comcast/ESPNU news, I learned that the NFL and Comcast have also reached an agreement. And get was announced via Twitter....

The details have yet to be released, but as I mentioned in previous posts, the deal is expected to include both on demand content as well as the "Red Zone Channel". This is obviously a great day for all the parties involved, and certainly for NFL fans.

From what I'm reading, by August 1st the NFL Network will be removed from the digital sports tier package and head back to its original place as a digital basic channel. (Per ESPN)

Not that this sways me or anything, Comcast still sucks.

I'm hoping for the NFL to make nice with Cablevision but Cabelvision never makes nice with anyone so I've stopped holding my breath.
