The article reports on the decision of Time Warner Cable to restore NFL Network to former Comcast Corp. and Adelphia Communications Corp. subscribers in response to the order made by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The reinstatement of NFL Network was ordered by the FCC after finding that Time Warner appeared to violate the rule that subscribers must get an advisory about a channel deletion under normal circumstances.
