Goodbye NFL Network, Hello Congress!

by Stephanie Stradley

If you have been watching the NFL Network lately, you may notice a scroll that indicates that Comcast customers will be without the station as of May 1. This is a bummer to a huge number of NFL fans, including me. Comcast is the only viable option where I live, and many apartment dwellers and others are in the same situation.

Apparently, Comcast's contract is up with NFL Network, and the NFL doesn't want Comcast to continue to provide NFLN on a special tier. The NFL claims that Comcast is yanking the network, but Comcast maintains that it won't pull the plug on NFLN unless the league insists on it.
