NFL Network Added to Cablevision Lineup

Cable provider to offer channel for the first time starting Friday.

Cablevision and the National Football League on Thursday announced a multi-year deal that puts the NFL Network and the NFL RedZone channel on the Long Island-based cable operator's television lineup for the first time.

Competitors DirecTV and Verizon FiOS already carry the stations, which broadcast all sorts of football-related programming, including regular season Thursday night games.

NFL Network will be available in both standard-definition and HD for customers who subscribe to iO Preferred, iO Silver, iO Gold or the iO Sports & Entertainment Pak. NFL RedZone, which airs on Sundays throughout the regular season, will be offered in both standard-definition and HD as part of the iO Sports & Entertainment Pak, which is now included in the new iO Gold package.

"We know there is significant interest in the NFL Network and NFL RedZone among our Optimum TV customers, and are pleased to have worked productively with the NFL to offer both channels in time for the upcoming season, and for years to come," Mac Budill, Cablevision's executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.

Both Verizon and DirecTV have used the NFL Network as a way to woo sports fans to their services. DirecTV still has one advantage over both Verizon and Cablevision—the satellite provider is the only one of the three offering NFL Sunday Ticket, which allows fans to watch every regular season game.

Well its about time!!! It makes me feel a little better, I said a little better, about paying that Cablevision bill every month. I'm a fan of the NFL and its good to be able to see these Thursday night matchups. Thank you Cablevision and NFL Network for making it happen.

And how much extra are they going to charge everyone, even those who don't watch football. Good reporting as usual only one side of the story

Wally, it listed the packages that it will be included with, implying it will be included in the price.
