NEW YORK (AP) - Time Warner Cable has agreed to carry NFL Network.
The official announcement came Friday afternoon by the league and the media company.
The nation's fourth-largest pay TV signal provider, with about 12 million homes, had been the lone holdout among the top nine after Cablevision announced a deal with NFL Network in August.
NFL Network began airing regular-season games in 2006 and expanded from only the second half of each season to a full season this year. The NFL initially feuded with large cable companies over adding the channel but had gradually increased its availability.
