Nope NFL is Directv exclusive.

Dish had their chance at EI and passed.

They have to wait for the next renegotiation peroid after 2011.

Is having an exclusive contract anti competitive? Seems the government steps in every other time.

The government stepped in when Extra Innings was about to become a Direct TV exclusive I believe. I remember John Kerry making a big deal because he was a Red Sox fan and didn't have / want Direct TV.

Found the link http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2826280

Direct TV signed a 7 year deal, but Cable was able to keep the rights to have Extra innings.
