Suddenlink Communications will offer NFL Network and NFL RedZone to its subscribers, thanks to the deal cut last week between NFL Media and the NCTC.

The agreement will make the channels available to Suddenlink’s 1.3 million subscribers by the first Sunday game of the season Sept. 12. The company says it has already begun to roll out the networks to customers.

“We’re excited to be able to offer NFL Network and NFL RedZone to our customers who have been asking for them,” said Jerry Kent, Suddenlink’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer in a statement.

The Suddenlink deal is the first one to be announced since the NFL and the NCTC signed their deal last week. The NCTC represents 17 of the top 20 cable systems.
