No. I'm not going to pay $300 to my apartment complex to have the right to put up a dish and then spend $60+ month for programming.

Yes, I have NFL network on Direct TV at my HOME.
Unfortunately I only cable at my apartment, and there is no NFL Network on that.

This poll was biased.......

NFL Network is in a $30 package, how do they get away with charging $300 for the right to put up a dish?

I would guess that they own the building, so they can do what they want.

No...it's a worthless network. In fact I got rid of cable a year ago and it's awesome. It's waste of time and money. Especially when you can get most of the same type of programiing over the air HD anyway

They can't. As long as the dish is not in a common area, he has the right to put up a dish. (Without paying the ridiculous $300)

Yes, I have it through Cox Communications.

I don't watch it, though.

Really? I thought this was why Directv required a landlords signature before installation at a rental property. I rent, but it is a house and my LL didn't have a problem with me getting a dish.

They require that so they don't put it in a place the tennant 'says is ok' and then are liable for any damage/avoid visits to relocate. Additional work generally is unpaid when an install is done 'incorrectly.'

I did the same about 8 months ago. Heck, I never watched half the channels I was getting anyways.

I get it on comcast. Its part of a premium sports package that was only $3 more a month and I get about 20 channels that let me see obscure college games and NFL network.

This is the Federal Communications act of 1996. If you read it all you will see landlords can put quite a few restrictions on your dish. If they want the dish painted green to match their motif, they can make you paint it green. They can make you buy liability insurance and can restrict where you put it. What they can't do is prohibit satellite systems.

I don't have it now. I used to have it when I had dish but rarely watched it. I get enough coverage of the pats, colts cowboys and whatever other team the media is pushing for the year on the other channels. More of that? No thanks.

Rumor has it the NFL has cyber-attacked the anti-NFL Network website, nflgetreal.com that was created by Time Warner, which is no longer working.

The NFL is seriously kicking ass against the Evil Empire that is Big Cable

Yeah, right, because only the cable companies are to blame here.

Yes, on Comcast Cable of Maryland.

I've had the NFL Network free since it went on the air because I've had digital cable for about 2-1/2 years, which was required since Comcast put the network on channel 180.

Then in June of this year Comcast took the NFL Network off the air and required customers to order it as an additional service, sort of like a premium channel and they charged $4.99 extra. Since Baltimore and Washington are NFL cities many people in the area complained that Comcast was simply price gouging. Comcast responded that the NFL Network had begun to charge them 55 cents were household and they couldn't afford to give it away free, even though many customers had upgraded to digital cable because of that Network.

Then about three months later in August, apparently not many people were jumping to sign up for the $4.99 NFL Network, so Comcast bundled about a dozen other sports channels with it and offered it as a sports tier for $1.99 for a year and then it would go up to $4.99.

About a week after that, I called Comcast and told them all those other sports channels didn't interest me, that I was waiting for an NFL Network HD before I signed up. About two days later NFL Network HD appeared on the channel guide on channel 246 so I called and added the package for $1.99 a month, so now my Comcast bill is only $120.82 a month since I also have HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Starz and an HD box.

I'd ditch the movie channels, they are only good when they are free. Luckily dish seems to have free previews all the time

I'm not saying the NFL isn't equally to blame, but they are being far more aggressive in attacking Big Cable in this epic battle of money-hungry monsters

Time Warner has been running ads on the local sports talk stations down here about this issue. So it is certainly not like they are taking it laying down.
