This is kind of annoying

I'm tired of hearing about the feud between the NFL and Comcast about the NFL Network.  The NFL charges a premium price for the NFL Network, and Comcast wants to put it on a premium tier.   Both sides show some obnoxious behavior.  But, the NFL is more annoying in their complaint that you might not be able to see it, and *you* should fight on the NFL's behalf, so you can get the channel.
Why am I annoyed by this?  I do not live in a city that is served by Comcast.  But, I do have a cable company that only offers NFL Network on another tier, which I'm not going to pay for.  And, in my case, the company is so small that the NFL doesn't care.

Just get a satellite dish already. The NFL is charging something like $10 a YEAR for their channel. Seems cheap to me for the NFL. They are smart to try and keep cable companies from charging you an arm and a leg to get it. There are more NFL fans than anything else and the channel should be on basic package like it is on DirecTV and Dish Network.


I would, but there's another wrinkle: the cable company has a contract with the city, and I have to pay for cable, regardless of whethere I get a dish or not.

I'm not paying for cable twice. And I'm not paying more for the premium tier. So, I'll go without.
