ABSTRACT
The article reports on the arguments concerning the decision of cable television network Comcast Corp. to develop sports tying with NFL Network company in the U.S. Steve Burke, chief operating officer of Comcast stresses that it plans to place the NFL Network on a sports tier it acquired from Time Warner Inc. However, Comcast's plan would limit the ability of NFL to be viewed by its 23 million subscribers. Also, the move could encourage other cable operators to establish deal with NFL Network.
