Armstrong, NFL reach deal to broadcast exclusive football games

Armstrong Cable and the NFL Network will announce a deal Monday to bring eight National Football League games exclusive to the network to local televisions, said a source with knowledge of the negotiations.

The cable company broadcasts the NFL Network’s regular programming, but the eight games have been blacked out in past years. Starting Nov. 12 when the Chicago Bears play the San Francisco 49ers, Armstrong customers with digital-tier cable will see all of the network’s games, the source said.

The source asked not to be named.

One of those exclusive games is the Dec. 10 grudge match between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers, division rivals separated by 115 miles. The rivalry has deep roots in Youngstown, which falls squarely in the middle of the two cities.

Read the full story Monday in The Vindicator and on Vindy.com.
