NFL Network To Time Warner Could Be Coming Soon

We've had our fair share of criticism of Time Warner Cable around here (except when they're putting me on TV) regarding the cable network's inability to get a deal done with the league to place NFL Network on its channels but that criticism may soon be ending.

The NY Post reports that Time Warner and the league are making progress on a deal that would place NFL Network on its basic tier of channels.

Time Warner Cable and the NFL Network have made substantial progress in their month-old negotiations and could be heading toward an agreement that will bring the football channel's full slate of eight games to the TV sets of their 12.1 million subscribers, The Post has learned.

In an important move, the cable company has dropped its stance that the NFL Network be placed on a separate, extra fee, sports tier, one source familiar with the talks said.

As the report states, talks have started and stopped before so, like the lockout, the deal isn't done until it's signed, sealed and delivered.

This would be huge news for those with Time Warner in the KC area.
