FCC rules against Comcast on NFL Network dispute

The cable giant will have to change how it has been carrying the NFL Network on its system.

FCC rules against Comcast on NFL Network dispute

As the Associated Press is reporting, the NFL has sacked Comcast Corp. for a loss, thanks to a ruling by the officials.

The Federal Communications Commission issued a 58-page opinion on a long-running dispute between the Philadelphia cable giant and the 24-hour NFL Network channel.

Once again, the FCC rules against Comcast, which has been putting the NFL Network on a special tier that costs subscribers more money.

I realize it's Saturday, but if you want to read the opinion and order, I posted a link here.

It looks like this dispute is headed to an administrative law judge and the process may take 60 days. But it looks like Comcast is going to have to change how it carries the NFL Network.
