Comcast sues NFL Network


It’s back to court for the ongoing battle between the NFL Network and cable giant Comcast. In the latest round, Comcast has filed suit, claiming that the NFL Network is violating its carriage contract with Comcast by urging viewers to switch from its service to satellite competitors DirecTV and Dish Network, both of which carry the NFL Network on basic tiers. Comcast carries the network owned by the NFL teams, but only on a special sports tier. The NFL Network had sued after Comcast moved it from its basic digital tier to the sports tier. A New York judge ruled in favor of Comcast and the NFL Network is currently appealing that ruling.
