or do you have to call to get it
Depends on your cable company. My understanding was that NFL Network isn't in the basic cable lineup and that you'd have to spring for the premium package, if your cable company even carries it in the first place.

Now that's weird - I had to go to my 3 year old's concert - when I came home I find that the KC game is not on NFL Network, they have some show about the NY Fire Dept post 9/11 and their football team - the game however is on our sports channel, TSN

A lot of times if it is on a local channel, they will show something different on the national channel it was supposed to be on.

Yeah, NFL Network is totally at fault here. They are requiring that everyone pay an extra 80 cents for the network, even if they don't care to watch it. I would love to watch football and all, but even I can admit that is a little unfair. As a fan, I'd be glad to pay a little extra to get the game, and would jump at the chance to get the NFL package.

I have NFL network and the game isnt on...it keeps running across the screen that your local cable company has elected not to show the game (or the rest of the upcoming primetime games) and that you should call them to complain.

What a bunch of BS, all this hype since the season started and I cant watch the games even though I have the NFL network.

Don't worry the game sucked. Not much action and only 1 decent fantasy start in the whole game.

I actually left the game to play destruction derby after I got bored.

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?


nope, the only games the SUNDAY ticket carries is on sunday. And not even the night game, just the afternoon games. DirecTv has nothing to do with the NFL network (besides carrying it)

As far as your cable company goes...you want to talk about greedy? Cable companies raise prices at a rate of 2-4 times the rate of satillites. The NFL knows if a cable company takes on the NFL Network, it'll be just another excuse to hike the rates. Who can blame the NFL for insisting the Network be on standard packages over premi?

This was my situation as well.

Very classy to screw over NFL fans on Thanksgiving of all days.

A big FU to the richest owners in all of sports for sticking it to even the fans that pay for the NFL network.

Greed has reached ridiculous levels here, how sad.
