NFL and Comcast Start Fighting Again
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 4/21/2008 2:00:00 AM
NFL Network plans to file a program-access complaint with the FCC over the nation's largest cable operator's decision to place the network on a sports tier.
"After months of unproductive efforts by network executives to make NFL Network and its popular football programming available on a fair basis to the 24.2 million subscriber homes served by Comcast systems, NFL Network has concluded that it has no choice but to bring a complaint under the Cable Act of 1992," the network said in a statement announcing the complaint.
Sena Fitzmaurice, Comcast's director of corporate communications and government affairs, said the cable operator makes "the NFL Network available to all of our customers on a tier of service that the NFL agreed to by contract."
