    I heard someone say that you might be able to get the NFL package on cable this year. Anyone know anything about this?

    I have always been able to get it. Well, maybe just on digital cable. Can't remember.

    TCI, now AT&T Broadband.

    You can get every NFL game on cable? I thought the only way was with a dish. I have digital cable and can get NBA, NHL, WNBA, MLB, MLS, NASCAR in car, College football and college Basket ball, but no NFL Sunday Ticket. [​IMG]

    DirecTV has exclusive rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket. I think their contract is up for negotiations soon so there may be some bidding wars. However I would expect DirecTV will pay any amount since it what really separates them from Dish Network and the cable companies.

    Jeff is right. NFL Sunday Ticket is a Directv exclusive. It is not on Digital cable. Many of my friends are pissed because they went the Digital Cable route and they can't get Sunday Ticket or all the games some other way.

    Hmmm... Maybe I am remembering the NHL and NBA... [​IMG]
    Quick side question: Someday, in the world of broadband, on-demand video, I keep hoping that instead of an entire NHL package, or an entire NFL package, where I wouldn't be interested in most of the games anyway, why not a "City where you were born" package?
    For me, I'd buy the Pittsburgh, PA package. Steelers, Pens, Pirates, Pitt football and basketball, etc.
