I went to turn on NFL Network a few minutes ago and nothing happened.Checked the digital cable line-up and it was gone.So I called Charter and they basically told me that NFL Network wanted to charge more, Charter said no, so they won't be carrying it anymore as they didn't want to pass on the cost to the customer.I am so bummed :(

 
Go door to door. Collect petitions. Start a picket line in front of their offices.Fight for what's right. Solidarity brother!

Tell Charter to cover the costs by not skimming so much off the top for themselves.

NO NO NO NO .. TELL ME IT IS NOT TRUE.NO NO NO NO.. :cry: :cry: :wall: :wall: :rant: :rant: :hot: :hot:

 
I was excited(have the dish) when NFL Network first came on and they hired Rich Eisen.I NEVER watch it anymore, it is a PUFF PIECE of crap that offers no inof of any value.

These boards have alot more to give than a network that "covers" it's own league.

No loss for you IMHO.
 
For those of us who don't have the PC right next to the TV and don't feel bouncing back and forth between 2 diff. rooms just to check our scores every 2 minutes, NFL Network is nice to check stats etc during commercial breaks of games.Up until 4 PM that is. After that they show those unbelievably boring, worthless, lonnnnnng post-game interviews that replace the stats window, rendering the POS station worthless. Whose brilliant idea was it to air those?

 
IMO NFL Network is only worth anything in the preseason and you're wanting to take a look at some players and can watch the games.NFL Network is pretty worthless during the season unless you watch the stat track on Sundays.

 
No loss... I have NFL Network and I barely watch it...
you're an outlier
[/QUOTE]I don't watch it, by the time it makes the airwaves as "news", it is already old from the internet...Now if I could get a baseball network channel, that would ROCK!

[/QUOTE]Baseball does not have the fan base for it's own network.
 
I liked it out of season & preseason more - draft/combines, etc.
:thumbup: Yeah, the Predraft and combine footage is nice as well as the interviews and such....I also find myself watching it a ton more preseason leading up to the FF draft to help get a better feel for the league as a whole....

Actually according this article (http://stlouis.bizjournals.com/stlouis/stories/2005/12/19/daily25.html) NFL Network pulled it's signal from Charter b/c Charter wouldn't move their NFL Network channel to a non-digital tier.

You sure? I could have sworn I had read somewhere that the NFL draft had more viewers than the World series.

:goodposting: Yeah, I have no idea why they show those. Especially in place of game stats which is the only reason most of us are watching. You would think that they could fit the stats on the screen with the interview. But, yeah, once those start the channel is useless.

What you need to do is call Charter back up and ask if your bill will now be like $.50 cheaper because they took away one of the channels you paid for. If they dont reduce your bill then fire them and frequent the bars for the games. Do not budge. I hate Charter but have to use them because they are the only Internet high speed provider in town here.

So your saying you don't have the option of Satellite Internet? or is it that Charters price for this service is alot cheaper? :ph34r:

I have wireless ability, if that is what you mean, but the only network I can hack into gives me a slow connection. I am actually thinking about getting rid of Charter because it is to expensive. I would save $50 a month. I live in a good sized city and their Internet capabilities suck.

I dropped the tier that had NFL Network, should save $3/month. :rolleyes:

Charter loses NFL Network

Dallas Business Journal - 5:47 PM CST Tuesday

The NFL Network on has pulled its signal from Charter Communications, the cable company confirmed Tuesday.

The NFL Network is a cable channel dedicated to the National Football League and professional football. According to a report Tuesday by trade newsletter CableFAX Daily, the league believes that Charter should move the network "off the digital sports tier because the tier doesn't enjoy deep penetration."

Charter spokeswoman Anita Lamont confirmed that the signal went down Monday morning.

"We have a great many sports programming offerings that are live," instead of taped sporting events, she told the Business Journal.

Charter was the first multiple cable-system operator to carry the network, signing a deal in January 2004. Charter said it lacks a digital basic tier where it could move the NFL Network, according to CableFAX Daily. Charter's executive vice president of programming, Sue Hamilton, told the trade newsletter that Charter takes "the enforcement of favorable positions in its carriage agreements" very seriously, and the company couldn't agree to the terms demanded by the network.

St. Louis-based Charter Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: CHTR) is the nation's third-largest cable television provider, and also provides digital video programming and high-speed Internet access. Charter serves customers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

I didn't know it was on the same tier as that kind of programming... :pickle:

[/QUOTE]It's about the only channel I do watch, all year long.
 
Anyone hear any updates on if NFL Network is coming back to Charter Cable?
No, but since 8 games will be on the NFL Network next year I'll bet that there will be a bigger push to get it back on.

Exactly, the news that NFL will be airing live games on it's Network will only drive the demand for this channel. When I heard that news, my comment was "wow, it'll be on every provider before summer"this Charter news is surprising.

Really surprising. I paid extra to get the NFL channel. It included channels I didn't want , it was a package,so I'm paying for channels I don't want if they lose the NFL channel. I'd cancel that package if they took away the NFL channel.With 8 live games coming this year I'd find another way to get it. What a bummer.

Wednesday is NFL Refs day to explain calls in the games. I can't wait to see that show. He's got alot of 'splaining to do.

 
It had better be on Time Warner by next season or I'm gonna kill a fool.
It probably won't make the cable companies that don't currently carry - carry it.All local teams involved will be broadcast locally(like espn games are) and those that really want to see every out-of-market game already - probably already have directv.

 
Playbook is far and away the best show on the NFL Network, at least until they start airing the games.

I usually don't watch anything other than Playbook during the season, but they do offer better information than other broadcast sources during the off-season and pre-season.

But addressing the topic, what are you guys doing not switching to DirecTV. They beat cable for quality and price (and selection of channels too.....porn, sports, etc.).

Thats fine but, I live in a small market. Local team the Eagles.I want all 8.

What if you don't get the Dallas/Washington game because you are "not in the market."

That is just wrong. I see paying big bucks for the NFL channel coming.

You have time to find a different outlet as stated before in this thread.
