The long-term deal, financial terms of which were not disclosed, calls for NFL Network to be available on Mediacom's Digital Plus level of service (high-definition channel 766 and standard-definition channel 186). NFL Network will be accessible to Mediacom customers who subscribe to the MSO's Digital Plus package, which proffers some 40 channels encompassing the education, entertainment, family/kids, movies and sports genres. Digital Plus retails for $12 monthly.
