    Got it on right now Drunk. Channel 772 NFL Network in HD with Cox here in Chula Vista looks fine. Too bad they're talking about the frickin Cheatriots.....:tdown:

    NFL Network has a history of massively over blowing any time they have to limit or cut their market. I think if NFL Network were being shut off anywhere they would be crying bloody murder. I don't see a mention about it on any of their webpages so methinks everything is going to be alright. :yes:

    NFL Network was removed from the AT100 package on Dish Network yesterday. That may be the reason why they aren't seeing it.

    That sucks. I am moving to a new house this weekend, and I was planning on getting the AT100, because there was almost nothing on the higher packages that I gave a **** about. Since NFL Network was on the AT100, I was covered.

    I got the HD standalone package on Dish Network, which does include NFL Network. You lose some nice channels, such as Sci Fi and FX, but I can live with that.

    Dish Network downgrades NFL Network

    The NFL Network has just been stripped of another 4 million subscribers after Dish Network downgraded the league-owned network. The EchoStar service moved the NFL Network from the America's Top 100 Package to the America's Top 200 Package, leaving the network's reach to around 31 million. -- Broadcasting & Cable

    Serious... I am not a reactionary (at least I like to think I'm not), but I am so embarrassingly HOT about this right now. I've already fired off an angry e-mail to Dish Network and I'm pricing other services. Both Cox and Direct TV are available and carry NFL Network in the Vegas area. Right now I'd gladly pay MORE to either one of them for the same service I had two days ago.

    I need to think about something else 'cause I'm getting myself really worked up. I have problems. :icon_eek:

    No I think you do not need to think about something else. IAD you are a passionate fan of football and need your drug fix like us all.

    I am thinking the same thing and switching back to Cox because they have the NFL Network and then I do not mind paying extra for my daily drug fix. I need my NFL please. :icon_mrgreen:

    I hate to admit it, but I feel like I must confess.

    I'm seriously about to give Dish Network another $7 a month, basically for ****ing me. Don't I feel just awesome. :unsure:
