    This doesn't really affect me because I have U-Verse, but I'm sure this will make all you Comcast users happy!

    yes, it does make me happy. But I'm probably still going to switch to AT&T when it's offered in my area. At the very least, when it is offered, I have to check out their packages and prices. AT&T already hand my land line phone and internet DSL, if they offer to put cable TV on the same invoice it's one less invoice to have to think about each month.

    Doesn't matter to me, I'm still switching to AT&T. Good to see for the rest of you that have comcast that the channel is not eliminated.

    Just read this and was stoked over the announcement. It's nice how the article mentioned the price break that the NFL gave Comcast to add the channel to a "lower" tier.

    Everybody had been hammering Comcast, not realizing just what kind of $$ the NFL was them to shell out for the privilege of carrying it.

    It's nice that the NFL caved a little, but I think that ultimately comcast was going to have to end up carrying it or lose out on a bunch of customers...
