Just days after bouncing the NFL Network from the cable systems it acquired from Adelphia and Comcast, Time Warner Cable has been ordered by the FCC to restore the network to those cable outlets. The FCC indicated that Time Warner Cable may have violated FCC rules by dropping the network without giving its subscribers a 30-day notice that it was doing so. The commission's decision said that "each day Time Warner customers go without the NFL Network significantly and irreparably harms many of them, particularly those in Buffalo, Cleveland, and Dallas, each of which is home to an NFL team." Time Warner does not carry the NFL network on its other cable systems.
