NFL network dropped by GEUS


Greenville – A popular cable football network will not be seen on some Greenville televisions in about a couple weeks.

The GEUS board of trustees voted unanimously Thursday to drop the NFL network from its cable television line-up, due to a spike in the amount the network is charging.

The contract was up for renewal, with the new contract no longer allowing GEUS to opt out of carrying the Thursday night games.

The contract to carry both the NFL Network and NFL Network HD also proposed an increase in rates three-and-one-half times higher than their current rates, with increases in each year of the contract.
