    I am w/ Comcast here in Atlanta. I am sick of the NFL season being shared w/ baseball, hockey, and basketball. So who here has the all-NFL channel, and how is it? Does it cost extra?

    Sorry mods, I just saw a similar thread in the After Hours Lounge. Please delete this thread if necessary.

    At present, I think the channel is only on DIRECTV.

    The NFL required DIRECTV to carry the channel as a
    condition of maintaining DIRECTV's exclusive rights
    to the Sunday Ticket package.

    Various other cable and digital cable operators have
    thus far refused to add the new channel, partly because
    they are still upset about DIRECTV's exclusivity to
    Sunday Ticket, and partly because the operators tend
    to favor adding the channel to a premium tier, while
    the channel hopes to be a basic channel.

    Yesterday was the offical debut, so it may be a little
    premature to comment on the quality of the various
    shows. For now, many of the hours are filled with
    old programming from 'NFL Films'.

    The show I was most excited about, the one advertized every 10 minutes on the channel, was "Game of the Week in HD".

    Well it wasn't in HD on the NFL Channel on DirecTV, and I can't seem to find any information on it.
