Time Warner, NFL Network must deliver Cowboys games!

I'm in Austin. Austin and San Antonio are huge tv markets for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys had training camp in San Antonio, and large crowds showed up for meaningless scrimmages.
 
Time Warner & the NFL Network are at it again. I don't care who broadcasts the games, but folks in Austin and San Antonio want to watch their Dallas Cowboys.
 
Please watch this story, and Grizz or others should post any new developments.

S.A. market a 'hotbed' in NFL Network feud

San Antonio may not be a major media market and still cannot claim a National Football League team as its own, but it's one of the biggest battlegrounds in the emotional dispute over NFL Network programming.
 
It's a football hotbed," said Seth Palansky, spokesman for the network.
 
That hotbed has been stoked to full flame by the inability of the network and Time Warner Cable to agree on a broadcast deal. Time Warner already is running local advertisements explaining its side of the dispute, and the NFL Network plans its own local campaign.
 
Palansky said Thursday that discussions between the two sides had ended without resolution and that the network would not be available on Time Warner this year, but cable company spokesman Jon Gary Herrera said that was not the case. He said Time Warner officials remain hopeful a compromise can be reached before the first Cowboys game is broadcast on the network Nov. 29.
 
Herrera also said Time Warner opposes a push by five state legislators to get a Federal Communications Commission arbitrator involved in the dispute. But the network sees that as the fairest way to reach a resolution.
 
San Antonio "absolutely" is a key battleground in the dispute — in large part because it has so many diehard Dallas Cowboys fans, Herrera said. If Time Warner's San Antonio viewership is combined with the company's customers in Austin, it could be the largest cable market blacked out from the NFL Network.
 
The October count from Nielsen Media Research listed Time Warner's system in San Antonio as the ninth-largest in the country.
