NFL: You Can’t Have That Deal

In addition to offering the NFL its own, stand-alone channel, we asked them if they’d give us a deal like the one they granted Cox Communications in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Once again, the NFL said, “No,” indicating that the Cox deal was “not available anymore.”


The NFL made a big announcement about the Cox deal in early November, with Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones on hand. A mere three weeks later, Suddenlink made its request. Is the NFL making up the rules as they go along?

And why are they giving fans in certain areas of the country preferential treatment? Don’t NFL fans in markets outside Oklahoma City and Tulsa deserve the same treatment?
