Insights Adds NFL Network HDTV
Football fans in Northern Kentucky should be thankful for Insight. The cable operator will launch the NFL Network's second season by adding high-definition telecasts, starting with the Colts-Falcons game on Thanksgiving.
The NFL Network HD will be available on Channel 926 to all insight HDTV customers in Northern Kentucky who subscribe to any digital package which includes the NFL Network on Channel 547. The NFL Network airs about 1,000 hours of HD programming a year, says John Dobken, Insight spokesman. Insight is Northern Kentucky's major cable system.
Unlike Insight, Time Warner here does not carry the NFL Network or Big Ten Network. Kevin G. Kidd, southwest Ohio Time Warner president, did not want to speculate when his system would get those sports networks. "Negotiations continue with both at the Time Warner corporate level," he told me Tuesday night.
