Not quite that simple. NFL is asking for a lot of money for the right to carry the NFL Network, plus they're also want it on basic cable instead of premium. The NFL is also getting some flak over DirectTV's exclusive Sunday Ticket deal (where NFL Network games can also be watched, I think) and the government is looking into whether that is a monopoly. NFL is getting a bit too greedy right now.
The NFL Network wants us to call into their cable companies and complain. They think that will force the cable companies to accept the NFL's demands, but I doubt that will work. If it does work, we still get screwed because cable companies will likely jack up the price for it. Or we have to get DirectTV, and like that Comcast commercial says, why get a dish in the city of wind?
