    NFL Network on Dish Network

    Heads up to anyone with Dish Network. I went on yesterday to set up my DVR to record the Insight Bowl and I was surprised to find that I no longer have NFL Network as part of my package. I have the bronze package and had to upgrade to the silver this morning so I could get the game. Versus is also gone. It was quick to get the upgrade, but it would have sucked if it was game time when I discovered this.

    Re: NFL Network on Dish Network

    I think its been like that for awhile hasnt it? I have always had silver and looked to go to bronze several times in the past to save cash but didnt for this reason.

    NFL network had a free preview to bronze from november to dec 25. Maybe thats what you were getting.

    Re: NFL Network on Dish Network

    I agree, it's been that way for quite a while. I also looked to downgrade to bronze to save a few dollars and did not because I didn't want to lose the NFL Network and, even moreso, the Red Zone channel.

    Re: NFL Network on Dish Network

    Ya, same here. Having a few people over to the house snce they don't get NFL Network and was making double sure I got it. Just upgraded to the multi sports pack and will probbly scale back down after the new year, so it'll only really cost me about $1 for the game.

    Re: NFL Network on Dish Network

    Just to clarify, will the game be on both channel 5 and NFLN in central Iowa or will it only be on channel 5 if you don't have dish network?
