    I don't think either the NFLN or the cable companies are victims here.
    They are both to blame.

    I agree with the NFLN in that the content (especially regular season games) offered affects a large enough audience to command inclusion in the basic package.
    I disagree with the outlandish price that they are asking per subscriber.
    If the NFLN would bring it down to a more reasonable level, I bet the cable companies would be willing to pick them up at the basic level, and that would in turn generate the advertising revenue.

    But now, they are in a pissing contest, so neither side wants to compromise.
    I saw in an article that ESPN gets $3 per subscriber.
    I watch ESPN less because of NFLN.
    Maybe they need to renegotiate with ESPN and get some of that money back. LOL
    ESPN has the NFL, MLB, NASCAR, the NBA and a host of other sports.

    NFLN has the NFL.
    A better comparison would be to compare it to the NBA Network or whatever it's called.
    I don't get that either (not that I miss it).

    My point!

    Re: NFL Network Gets Blocked

    OK, let's list our top 5 channels that we watch when we are lounging around. Not in any order..

    Mine:

    NFLN
    ESPNews*
    Discovery
    NBC
    Animal Planet or National Geographic - Toss up!


    *I wonder if that is part of the $3 that ESPN gets or if this is a .30 channel or so.
    With DTV, we get 4 of the ESPN channels.

    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Cripes -- Comcast is owned by the Seattle Seahawks. Good enough reason alone not to have that cable company. I wonder if there is some conflict of interests here somehow?????

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.
