44. FCC orders Time Warner to put NFL network back on (Thank Bob!!!)

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin on Thursday said the agency ordered Time Warner Inc. (TWX) to put the NFL Network back on its cable systems.


NFL Network filed a complaint with the FCC after customers who formerly had NFL Network suddenly lost the channel on Tuesday, when Time Warner became their new cable provider. The network argued that Time Warner violated rules requiring that cable companies give 30 days notice to customers before changing their lineups.

Martin said that Time Warner will have until Aug. 15 to respond to the FCC's action.

At the center of the debate is the network's desire to be included on the basic expanded tier - which gets the largest swath of customers. Time Warner Cable wants to put the network on its sports tier instead, which it offers as NBA-TV, Outdoor Channel and various Fox Sports channels for $5 a month.
