Time Warner, The Time is Now. Add NFL Network to Your Lineup

The chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable — They own Insight. They are the ones responsible for no NFL Network on Louisville cable. — is a fellow named George A Britt.

The following line appears in his bio on the company’s web site.

“Mr. Britt also has focused on creating a customer service-oriented organization.”

Oh really, George. Then riddle me this. How come Time Warner is the ONLY major cable network that does not show NFL Network and NFL Red Zone?

There’s been a dispute between the cable giant and the NFL going on for nine years now, since the network started. Without resolution. Obviously. TW says negotiations are ongoing. NFL says nothing is happening.

So, football junkies like myself in my town who depend on cable instead of one of satellite companies — Which are, frankly, looking more attractive by the day — are at the moment of this writing, watching Rutgers vs. South Florida in a Big East Thursday matchup. And not watching Green Bay vs. Chicago. Packers vs. Bears.

Because Time Warner won’t carry the NFL Network, even though every other major cable carrier in the country does.

So, here’ what you and I can do.

1. Switch to Direct TV.

2. Contact Time Warner and let them know you will switch if they don’t add the NFL Network to its lineup. 1-888-2253. Snail Mail: 60 Columbus Circle, NY NY 10023.  Or, call Insight locally at 357-4400. Tell them you’re mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. Or . . .

3. Shut up and accept the situation, which apparently is not going to change any time in the foreseeable future.

    Another option if available in your area is AT&T Uverse which does have the NFL Network. I dumped insight a couple of years ago I have never thought about going back.
    It was nice watching my Packers put it on the Bears last night(aside from wanting Michael Bush to have a good game)

    A second on the AT&T U-verse comment. I’ve had it for almost 3 years. Outstanding. A bit pricier, but worth it.

    Chuck I hear ya load and clear on this one. However, I will not use satellite tv ever again. I want to be able to watch the television when bad weather is here.
