NFL STATEMENT- As of Thursday evening, June 16 at 7 p.m. ET NFL Network and NFL RedZone have been dropped by Dish Network’s satellite distribution system. This represents the first time in NFL Network’s 13 year history that one of its service providers has not continued to offer the network to its subscribers.
NFL Network continues to be distributed to over 60 million households across the United States, including strong distribution partnerships with every major cable, satellite and telco provider in the country — including DIRECTV, Comcast Xfinity, Charter Spectrum, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon FiOS.
NFL content has never been more popular across the media landscape. According to the Nielsen Company, 199 million people tuned into the 2015 NFL regular season representing 78 percent of all television homes and 67 percent of potential viewers in the U.S. NFL games accounted for the top 25 and 46 of the 50 most-watched TV shows among all programming in 2015.
As the only network 100% dedicated to coverage of America’s most popular sports league, NFL Network is committed to serving the millions of NFL fans by reaching fair distribution agreements with the pay-TV industry.
The Steelers will wear their 1934 throwback uniforms for the team’s October 9 contest vs. the New York Jets at Heinz Field. This will mark the fifth straight season Pittsburgh will wear their 1934 throwback uniforms.
The team first wore these in 2012 during the team’s 80th season in professional football. The Steelers donned their 1934 throwbacks twice that season, once versus the Washington Redskins and once versus the Baltimore Ravens. In 2013, the team wore them against the Detroit Lions, and in 2014, Pittsburgh wore them against the Indianapolis Colts. Last season, the Steelers sported their 1934 throwbacks against the Cincinnati Bengals.
