In a move that is just breaking now, the New York Supreme Court has reversed a lower court’s ruling that said Comcast was justified in putting the NFL Network on a sports tier. Newsday’s Neil Best is on top of it giving us the story from John Ourand of Sports Business Daily.
In addition, Patricia Hurtado of Bloomberg News writes that the court reversed a May 2007 ruling that gave Comcast the right to move the NFL Network to a sports tier. Comcast had argued that it had the right to do so after it lost the cable rights to NFL games to the NFL Network.
We’ll continue to monitor reaction.
