(NEW YORK) — Football fans in many parts of the country have reason to rejoice. The NFL Network has come to terms on multi-year agreements with Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks, the country’s second and sixth largest cable providers.
The deal allows the two providers to carry both the NFL Network and the NFL RedZone channel starting this Sunday, September 23rd. The NFL Network is home to Thursday Night Football.
Until Friday’s agreement, fans in 12 NFL markets, including New York City, Dallas and San Diego, were without the channels.
