Does anyone know if Charter is going to pick up the NFL Network, and when that may happen.

I have already called, and could not get an answer. I would hate to miss some games because of Charter's stupidity.

My cousin works for Charter and he told me the reason they do not carry the NFL network is that NFL network is charging them too much to carry it. Evidently the networks charge the cable companies a monthly fee and Charter feels the price is too high. Charter is horrible anyway. Get DirecTv and be done with it.

I have Charter on the northshore that is by far the worse cable company that I have ever dealt with. Besides not having the NFL network, does anyone know why we do not have Fox and NBC in high def?

Go to NFL.com, lately on the top right of their page there is a link you can go to in order to request from your carrier that they have NFL network.

I have called them so many times. It is the SOS everytime. They are working on it. I have asked them why dont they have Fox 8 NO and ESPN 2 on the HD package. They say Fox is to weak out of New Orleans, which is PS. I pick it up off my ant. They say they are working on getting ESPN 2. Sad thing is, I worked for them for 11 years. So I know the song and dance.

Cox and Charter will not carry the NFL network unless its subscribers begin to cancel because of it.

If you want the NFL network get another provider.

charter is horrible....
i don't have espn news, but i have 30 freakin spanish channels. everytime i try to call them about, i conveniently get "transferred" (hung up on)
only reason i went with digital cable vice satellite is because of "on demand". once direct tv gets that ball rolling, i'm in like flynn.

We don't even have OnDemand from COX in Baton Rouge. We have a ton of spanish channels now though.

Cox actually does carry NFL Network in a lot of their markets. New Orleans digital cable customers have it. If you run a search on their website it pulls up a lot of markets that have it....Oklahoma has it in some areas. It doesn't make any sense to me that you would have it in some markets and not in others.
