NFL Network To Debut No Later Than Thursday

September 21st, 2012

The war is over.

Joe’s four-year long crusade to right an outrageous wrong has come to an end now that Bright House Networks, along with Time Warner Cable, have finally seen good reason and decided to treat the area’s football fans with respect and capitulated, giving football fans the greatest channel known to man, the NFL Network.

Per Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times, the NFL Network will debut on Bright House Networks cable outfit no later than Thursday, and could be available as early as Sunday.

The NFL and Time Warner, which handles negotiations for Bright House, reached a deal Friday after what was, essentially, a nine-year standoff since the network first launched in 2003.

The network will appear on digital channel 183 and in HD on 1145 and there will be no extra charge to Bright House subscribers, according to Bright House spokesman Joe Durkin.

Finally, after nine tedious, torturous years, the battle has been won. Joe applauds the good people of Bright House — Joe never, ever had an issue with those who worked there, only the suits who made the decisions — for finally righting this terrible wrong.

Again, the war is over. Joe has ceased hostilities with Bright House Networks. Joe — and all TV viewers — have won.

    Glad to hear it. Have actually lost $100 for an application fee when I found out the only TV access in the complex i was moving into was through Bright House (with no NFL Network) and I cancelled my move-in.

    The NFL is as guilty as Bright House, comparing this to WWII is asinine.
    I love you, Joe; but, come on!

    That’s great news for fans but its pretty messed up that they are essentially pinned into getting the NFL network but aren’t allowed the rights to offer the ticket hahaha. Stupid really.
