Charter Communications Lands NFL Network, RedZone

With the NFL season a little more than a month away, Charter Communications reached a new, long-term agreement for carriage of the NFL Network.

NFL Network will be available to Charter customers on the Digital View Plus tier and in high definition to customers with high-definition service and HDTVs. In addition, Charter’s sports tiers customers will receive the NFL RedZone channel.

“Charter has devoted and passionate NFL fans from coast to coast. We’re extremely pleased to be enhancing the value to our customers with the addition of NFL Network and NFL RedZone,” said Allan Singer, Charter Senior Vice President, Programming. “The total football experience for Charter customers is now much more robust – high-definition picture, stats and facts to help pick a fantasy team and in-depth analysis of performance and strategy.”

“Charter is one of the top cable systems in the country and we are excited its customers will be the newest fans to enjoy the only network dedicated entirely to football,” said John Malkin, NFL Network vice president of affiliate distribution. “In addition to our Thursday Night Football games, nightly news on NFL Total Access, Emmy award-winning NFL Films programming and every NFL preseason game, Charter customers will also be able to watch NFL RedZone – featuring every touchdown from every game on Sunday afternoons – starting on September 11.”
