Lughead Posted December 26, 2009 Share Posted December 26, 2009 Money is the root of all evil Fox V.S. Time Warner Background From NFL V.S. Time Warner The NFL Network is embroiled in a dispute with several cablecompanies. Perhaps the most public controversy is over its removal onsome systems owned by Time Warner Cable, the second-largest system in the United States, which occurred in September 2006. NFL Network has insisted that it be placed on basic service and wishto charge the cable companies a monthly rate of $0.61 per subscriber,while Time Warner and other major cable companies wishes to place it ona sports tier. Cable companies feel that a channel with such marginalinterest and few live games with filler programming would be tough tosell during non-football season months.NFL Network's position is that demands are unreasonable and many otherproviders place NFL Network on a basic tier without subscriberbacklashes. So if Time Warner and Fox can not Come to terms on a bigger deal that NFL network wants with Time Warner we probably wont see Giant football on TV any more after the Carolina Game. However ,if they do strike a deal does this open the door for NFLNetwork on Time Warner? basically Fox wants $1 a month per Time Warner subscriber and NFL network want's about $0.61 I don't see the deal going through ....... hmmmm maybe the NFL is using Fox as a Pawn?
