Weve had a handful of stories over the past day regarding the potential unavailability of several NFL games in their local television markets.

The games will be broadcast on the various over-the-air stations; based, however, on a dispute between Time Warner Cable (including Bright House Cable) and LIN TV, the broadcasts wont be available via cable.

A memo sent by NFL Network chief Steve Bornstein to all teams identifies a total of seven games that will be affected by the dispute, it its not resolved by Sunday.

The game between the Colts and the Texans wont be seen in Ft. Wayne, Indianapolis, or Buffalo.

The Bills-Cardinals contest wont be seen in Buffalo.

The Steelers-Jaguars game on Sunday night wont be seen in Dayton, Ohio; Austin, Texas; Portsmouth/Norfolk, Virginia; and Springfield. (We assume Illinois and not the non-state-specific home of the Simpsons.)

The game between the Falcons and Packers wont be seen in Green Bay.

The game between the Bears and the Lions wont be seen in Toledo, Ohio.

The Bengals-Cowboys game wont be seen in Ft. Wayne and Indianapolis.

The Redskins-Eagles game will be unavailable in Portsmouth/Norfolk, Virginia.

The memo estimates that 1.4 million homes will be affected by the absence of the games.

The memo also recommends that teams point out that the NFL has no involvement in the dispute, and that, while other major cable operators have reached an agreement with LIN TV, Time Warner has not.

The latter point is surely aimed at Time Warners inability to reach a deal with the NFL for the inclusion of NFL Network on Time Warner Cable. The fact that other cable operators have reached an agreement with LIN TV and Time Warner hasnt suggests to the objective outsider that perhaps Time Warner is to blame for the absence of NFL Network on the Time Warner system.

Though the memo makes no express mention of NFL Network or of the lingering dispute with Time Warner, the fact that the memo comes from Steve Bornstein, who runs NFL Network, creates a pretty clear link between the two issues.

In Green Bay, Time Warner has made free antennas available for its customers. In Indianapolis, an agreement has been reached to pump the audio of the game over the cable system.

Hopefully, LIN TV and Time Warner will work out their differences ASAFP.




Damn... It would be nice to know the TRUTH to who's lying about this.

Time Warner says it gets the FOX signal for free and does not charge customers for it.
FOX says Time Warner gets the signal free and is charging for it and wants in return less than $0.01 per subscriber per day for the signal.

My guess is Time Warner is the entity that's lying... Although when we had them as a cable service provider, we were MORE than happy with our service.

I think that Time Warner is lying because the NFL Network is now on every other major cable service providers line-up. And why not Time Warner? Who knows.. but if they are having 'broadcast' issues with NFL Network and their pricing, chances are they are the ones charging for their 'free' FOX coverage.

Just my humble opinion, though.

EDIT: Oh yeah.. and to everyone in Green Bay that has Time Warner: HAHA!! :physassult:

I don't trust the cable company. They want to charge for everything(hookup, service, boxes, etc.) and don't want to pay for anything.

Just like all the sh1t they put up about the Big Ten channel. They said a lot of people that don't watch it would have to pay. Well woopy ding I pay for 15-20 channels I don't watch and it doesn't seem to bother them.

I wish we got the NFL channel.
Time Warner doesn't care about it's customers......ONLY money.
If they don't wake up, they will lose out, as customers will go elsewhere.
They are used to being pretty much the only way to get TV.....but thats changing.

uffda udfa (21h) : Now, a guy they really liked and have groomed for 3 years is the guy. Tons of toys on O. Let's see how it runs with a great coach, now.
uffda udfa (21h) : The Flynn Patriots game has been used to say that he is. Seneca and Scott showed otherwise.
uffda udfa (21h) : Hundley is going to settle the debate once and for all in whether Mike McCarthy is a great coach, or not.
uffda udfa (21h) : Doesn't speak well to the talent acquired by the org, does it? Easy to say talent is great until Rodgers is gone and you have to see it wit
Porforis (22h) : Could Sam Bradford come into the Packers and post a winning record from here on out? Are there any non-starters in the NFL that could?

Zero2Cool (22h) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
uffda udfa (23h) : Here's one for you, Z. Vikes lose Teddy B. and go out and aggressively get Bradford. Packers lose 12 and go out and get a UDFA.
