The article reports on the summary judgment issued by New York Supreme Court Judge Bernard Fried that Comcast Corp. can move the NFL Network to a dedicated sports tier. The action could result in the loss of 7 million of 41 million subscribers of the professional football league's channel. Fried found in favor of Comcast that an agreement it made with the league in 2004 would allow it to move the NFL Network to a sports tier if the cable operator did not succeed in its quest to acquire rights
