Karen Chattertown, 55, of Tucson, AZ, says she’s not a shill for the NFL Net. "I’m just a big NFL fan. I love football," she told Cfax Mon. Chattertown, a retired media teacher, can be seen on YouTube telling folks to drop cable if they move the net to a more expensive tier (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtTyZLbuP9c). The spot was so timely given Comcast’s recent NY Supreme Court win allowing it to move the net to a tier, suspicions immediately surfaced that Chattertown was hired by the net. She says that’s not the case; she just enjoys having fun making videos (she’s done some work for local businesses)—and she really wants her NFL Net. When she learned that Comcast was moving the net to a $5/month sports tier, she said she visited the MSO’s Website and sent emails trying to find our more info, including what other channels are included on the tier. "They have not gotten back to me… I went to satellite, and they got right back to me," she said, adding that DBS would be cheaper. However, Chattertown said she doesn’t want to leave her cable company. "I’m very big on Comcast," she said. "They do a lot for the community. But I’ll be changing if they don’t back up on this [sports tier]." Why not go to DirecTV where she can have NFL Sun Ticket? She doesn’t think it’s worth it because she doesn’t follow just one team. And how did she stomp that set-top box to death? It was a duct taped UPS package, she said.
