Adelphia Communications and the NFL Network have entered into a broad affiliation agreement. The deal, announced Wednesday, includes distribution of NFL Network, NFL Network on Demand and NFL Network HD. Adelphia will begin rolling out the NFL Network in the next few weeks. With more than 5 million customers in 31 states, Adelphia will initially launch in NFL team markets New England, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo in time for the upcoming NFL postseason.

“Having Adelphia on board as an affiliate is another important step forward for NFL Network,” said NFL Network President and CEO Steve Bornstein. “With systems in NFL markets including New England, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo, it allows us to carry out our mission–bringing our fans closer to the NFL than ever before.”
