The multiyear deal, which also includes Bright House Networks, will put the league's network and its offshoot RedZone Channel on both systems beginning Sept. 23, in time for Sunday's games. A full launch will come Sept. 27; NFL Network airs the Cleveland Browns-Baltimore Ravens game that night.
For both systems, NFL Network will be available on the Digital Basic and Sports Pass tiers, with RedZone available to Sports Pass customers.
"We're delighted to have reached an agreement for NFL Network and NFL RedZone that provides a good value to our customers," said Melinda Witmer, executive VP and chief video and content officer for Time Warner Cable. "The additional games this year and the proven appeal of NFL RedZone will certainly prove to be a draw for our customers. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with the NFL."
"We are excited to work with Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks to bring fans football 24 hours a day, 365 days a year," added NFL Network president and CEO Steve Bornstein.
With the deal, the NFL Network is now available on every major MSO.
