I just saw this article; pretty sure my post below was first, but it is not as if everyone and their brother is complaining about not getting to see these ‘extra’ NFL games.
The NFL Network has sued Comcast over the cable company’s plans to put the network on a premium-priced sports tier in systems acquired from Time Warner and Adelphia. The network also is embroiled in litigation with Charter Communications. The third-largest cable operator (5.9 million subscribers) signed on as the NFL Network’s first big cable provider in January 2004, but the network hasn’t been on Charter since December 2005 because of a basic-versus-premium dispute.
According to the article, non NFL Network subscribers do get to see ‘in market’ games, so hopefully that means that I will not miss the ATL/Dallas game.
