Default NFL Network and ESPN discussing a partnership?

Report: NFL Network, ESPN discussing a partnership

NEW YORK (AP)The NFL Network and Walt Disney Co.s ESPN are in talks about forming a partnership, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

A deal could end a long standoff between the league and cable carriers, some of whom said the NFL was asking them to pay too much for its programming.

The NFLs discussions with Disney are being led by Steven Bornstein, the head of the NFLs cable network who is also a previous chairman of ESPN and president of the ABC network, which is also owned by Disney, the Journal reported.

ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys declined to comment on the report but said the network has a long-term and extensive relationship with the NFL and to that end we are always in discussions with them about mutual projects.

NFL Network spokesman Dennis Johnson also declined to say whether those specific talks were occurring, saying the company was in talks with ESPN and our other broadcast partners all the time on a wide range of issues.

The NFL Network is carried on the satellite broadcaster DirecTV, but the network clashed with major cable providers like Time Warner Cable Inc., who said the league was demanding exorbitant carriage fees.

The NFL had tried to enhance the appeal of its own cable channel by withholding a number of live games from traditional broadcasts and reserving them for its own network.

Well they need to hurry up and figure this out before I purchase a dish for no reason...Not having my NFLnetwork this past year killed me, I'm sick of watching baseball highlights on ESPN with no football news.

I love how the cable companies try to blame the NFL, saying they're making them charge high fees to carry the NFLnetwork. The NFL could care less, its not their fault cable wants to package the NFL network with a bunch of BS sports channels and rip off the consumer. I don't seem to understand it, directTV offers good sevice with NFL network for half the price cable does.

I used to have NFL Network. Then Dish Network decided to dick me and take it out of the basic packaging. I'm not giving those a-holes a dime more than i'm already paying, cause they're charging me enough. It's ridiculous enough that i have to pay 4 dollars for local channels.

Bring NFL Network back to basic Dish programming! :(

Get alot of football fans together who have Dish Net, I hope you live in a fairly big city becuase the plan will work easier, and have them all complain and threaten to leave if they dont bring it back.

I remember when I had Comcast and NFLnetwork started I just had it with the basic package, then one day out of the blue the ruined my life and I haven't been right ever since then :( I still need my tivo to record the Cowboys games and watch them again through the week, but NFLnetwork does things for fans like replays the best games of the week sped up without all the filler, and thats great for true NFL fans, especially when you miss out on games watching your favorite team...It's worth it to me so I'm going to get whatever package I need this July, but knowing my luck as soon as I sign up they will work out an agreement.

NFLN game broadcasts are awful... simple as that. They have terrible camera's and announcers. Atleast they have fired some but it is just terrible.

I agree that the broadcasts have been awful, but they're basically trying to hit the ground running when it comes to that. Their complete NFL coverage is far and away better than anything ESPN has to offer. I'm tired of hearing the same garbage stories from the crappy "analysts" they have.

If you have an HD TV and don't have DirecTV and you are with a provider that either makes you pay for NFLN or doesn't carry it, you are really wasting your time. Granted, I sell DirecTV for a living, but I am not married to my job and say this as a customer myself: it's the best TV product on the market. Period. I have two HD TV's and 95 HD channels. I have NFLN, NHLN, ESPNNews, ESPNU, CBS College Sports TV all in HD (actually not ESPNU) and I get the Sunday Ticket. It's awesome.

If people want it, the best promotion of the year is starting Tuesday with the NFL Sunday ticket. I think they are doing what they did last year and giving you every channel we have plus the Sunday ticket for 69.99 a month for four months. I probably won't be working with this company a whole lot longer but I can honestly say as a customer I am beyond satisfied.[/commercial]

at least you get something. Out here all we get is the Superbowl on BBC, there's nothing at all on any dutch network. You could go North American Sports Channel, but that kinda blows.

this will be nice because with cable you get the HD channels for free where i live so it would be nice if they added the NFL Network that would be awsome

I would probably agree with that. DirecTV is great. I have Dish Network at the moment and while it's not bad and I get all those sports channels, the customer service isn't as good.

Though I have to say, I have buddies with AT&T UVerse and Verizon Fios and they are by far the best providers I've ever seen for TV. Not to mention they offer great internet service too.

The only downside to those two services are they're not available in a lot of places at the moment.

Just sneaked a peak at the new NFL Sunday ticket offer that starts tomorrow, and it's awesome $74.99/month for 4 months gets you every channel we have, the NFL Sunday ticket and a free HDDVR (they have never been free, and I just paid $199 for one). Such a killer offer considering the Sunday Ticket by itself is like $300 for the season...

They really are killing people for the NFL Sunday ticket. I mean every game is great, but it's pretty pricey. I'm just happy I get every Giants game here or I'm sure I'd be switching to DirecTV and buying it too.

They will never do it but they could make quite a bit of money by selling games individually for a certain price or you could buy only one teams games for the entire season at a cheaper price.

I'm a big fan of DirecTV. The initial set up used to be a pain in the ass, but it seems like the hardware is pretty dialed in for HD now. I think I had to change dishes 3 times in 4 years for HD purposes.

DirecTV has tons on HD, and if you are an NFL fan there is nothing like The Ticket. Can't live without it now.

Well they paid something like 1 Billion to get it, so I guess it makes some sense. It breaks down to less than $20 a week to get the Sunday Ticket at home, which is like a one hour bar tab for most people when you think about it.

They don't let you buy one game at a time, but they do let you buy the Ticket one week at a time, but I can assure you it is much more than $20 for that one week (I don't deal with that part because I don't deal with existing customers)...

Yeah after going to the bars throughout college and in DC for 2 years, this year I finally got Sunday Ticket since I moved out to the Midwest and had to get a dish anyway where I live. And Sunday ticket is amazing. Sit at home with friends, actually hear the game and watch every game in HD with the Superfan. Plus you get the Fantasy Football ticker at the bottom where you program your players into the tv and it tells you every time they get yards or score a td (up to 28 players I think it can track). And then on Tuesdays they show a replay of every teams games not just the ones NFL network chooses. And they just show the plays. Very nice to watch an entire replay of a game in exactly 1 hour. Good for taping too so you don't have to fast forward through anything. Well worth the money. Plus when the Lions aren't playing they have the redzone channel that shows only when teams are about to score and the channel that broadcasts 8 games at once. Truly amazing.
