    Enjoy your last month of NFL Network. I had heard they were gonna yank it, but didn't think they'd follow through with it.

    Anyone a satellite salesman???

    Sigh. Inertia is my friend, so I have stayed with Comcast. What are the odds they will adjust my bill downwards to reflect the fact that I am no longer getting NFL network??

    Uverse? Direct TV? Which is best?

    This officially seals the deal to switch to AT&T.

    I must chime in as usual on this subject.
    I have had Direct TV for over 15 years and would never change back to cable, NEVER !

    I agree with BigWig...costly for me to have the NFL package, but there is nothing out there that can rival the coverage I get of the NFL and the Texans during football season.

    We need another company in Houston...DirecTV randomly spiked bills and Dish has lost a lot of channels. AT&T is really the only option.

    I agree. I rarely watch ESPN during football season. The difference is incredible.

    the last I heard, you can still get the NFL network on Comcast, but you have to buy their sports package to get it.

    That is what will be ending. I read that the NFL Network will not be on Comcast anymore - either pay or free.

    Uverse is great but they do not have the NFL Ticket, and not as good a sports pack either.

    If you haven't yet, send a note to comcast thru their site. I did yesterday and today a lady left me a voice mail from there. I will call her tomorrow and see what she has to say.

    Comcast wants NFLN to be an extra $$ channel. NFL wants it as basic as ESPN or CNN. I pay more to have sports channels and it's BS.

    Okay...I talked to the lady at Comcast. She was very nice and just wanted to say that NFLN leaving is not a done deal. She thinks something will get worked out.

    I also asked if they had gotten many other complaints. Her answer.."Oh yeah!!"

    I also told them that it is ridiculous that one has to pay for basic sports channels. We pay 7.99 a month. Its krap.

    Let them know that!

    My daughter and her roomie have ATT U-Verse in their apt. They have three HD boxes, one is a DVR, all the movie channels, and internet for $140-something per month. The cool thing about the DVR is that they can watch what is recorded on any of the non-DVR boxes.

    You have to go to an ATT store and have them check your address.
    If they had it in my area I'd switch in a heartbeat.

    DishNetwork had NFL Network for free for a period of 2-3 years I believe. And then they made it a seperate channel that you had to pay for (which sux!) so many bogus channel that are completly pointless, I swear these goddamn fuking %$#$%#^#% ^&&^#^#& *&@$^& corporations!!!!!!

    Can't the NFL or Jerry Jones do anything about this?????
