some quick math...
I dont know these numbers specific but found some stuff on the web and wiki..
NFL network is approx 60million homes, let's say they get approx $.50 for the channel per subscriber.... , per month.
60,000,000 x 12 months x $.50 = $360,000,000
now there are the operating costs etc.., but there is also adverstising on top of that as well to offset the operating costs.
I also think that that $/month subscription cost might be a sliding scale # based on teh deal, the tier etc that each contract was cut with each cable provider.
but using roundball #s here, the network is potentially very profitable. I can't see the NFL making that up via web only.
