Anyone know if Dish will ever offer NFL Networks. If so, how close are they? If Not, has Charlie ever spoken about why not?

HDTV Rookie said:But let me ask this question. Why should the NFLST be an exclusive product. Would it not benefit the NFL to offer the NFLST to as many providers that want it.
I mean why settle for 1 million, when you can get 2 million for the same effort.
I realize that it was probably D* that asked NFL to make it exclusive to enablle them to get subs that no one else could get, but NFL was and is in the driver's seat.
As for getting new subs, I would think that there are still new subs out there to be had. There might be those who could not have afforded the NFLST in prior years, but more so those young folks that are finally growing up and moving out of mom and dad's house and are now on their own
