Former Insight Communications cable television customers who subscribe to the NFL Network will lose access to the channel beginning Wednesday.
Insight had carried that channel and NFL Red Zone, but Time Warner Cable, which acquired Insight, does not carry them.
A statement issued by NFL Network said there are no negotiations going on with Time Warner Cable, "which remains the only TV provider among the top eight in the country which refuses to offer its customers NFL Network."
The network's statement said its executives were not asking for new terms but only a continuation of the current deal for five more years.
Insight began carrying the NFL Network in 2005 and added NFL Red Zone when it began in 2009.
"We regret that some of our customers will be disappointed to no longer receive those channels, but the terms being demanded now for the NFL Network are out of line for a network willing to guarantee just a handful of live games," Time Warner Cable spokesman Mike Hogan said.
The NFL Network said the change means that former Insight customers will not be able to view the Cincinnati Bengals game against the Philadelphia Eagles as part of the NFL Network's Thursday Night Football series on Dec. 13.
