Default 'Inside the NFL' ending 31-year run on HBO

Quote:
NEW YORK (AP) "Inside the NFL" is ending its 31-year run on HBO.
Wednesday's season finale will be the studio show's last on the network, HBO announced earlier in the day.

"It has been a terrific franchise," HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg said in a release. "But the television landscape has changed quite a bit over the last 30 years and we have to recognize the realities of the business. I'm not sure we had more than one competitor when the show launched in 1977."

The decision does not mean the end for the program itself. It's owned by NFL Films, which is looking to continue the show in conjunction with another network in the fall.

The HBO finale will be re-aired through the rest of the week.

I wonder if the NFL Network picks it up?

Hope NFLN picks it up. It would obviously fit into their programming.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was the plan all along. With the NFL suing cable companies to get them to carry NFLN as a non-premium channel and their stake in ownership of NFL Films.

I think we will see the show get reborn some time soon.
