NFL Redzone?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have this on there TV? IS it worth the money? Do they show every redzone in real time or is there a big delay? I usually just watch the Yahoo Gamechannel on my computer, but would be better if it was on the TV.

One word: AWESOME!

If you're a football junky or have interest in a fantasy football league this is a must have. Most of the time I'm watching this channel rather than the broadcast games due to the fact that you see all the action from all the games.

Don't let the name fool you, they show more than just the red zone plays. What they do is flip around the league and show the games that have the most action happening. The team with the football could be at their own 30 yard line and they'll show it....not just when a team is in the red zone. When I heard about this I also thought that they would just show replays of red zone action or the scores but that isn't the case at all, and most of the time it's live action or a replay shortly after something happened. You never miss a score.

Another great thing is that there are no commercials whatsoever. Zip, zilch, nada. There is an in-studio announcer that they show once in a while that will briefly bring you up to speed on what is going on in a certain game and then they'll go to the game to see how it plays out.

What they show is the actual broadcast from CBS or FOX with the announcers doing those games. So instead of being held captive to the Vikings game, you'll see what everyone across the country is seeing on FOX and CBS. There is no bottom ticker added by the NFLN.....just whatever is being shown by FOX or CBS. It's like you're watching a game sitting in NY, Miami, Dallas, Denver, Seattle, etc.

So to answer the question if it's worth the money, yes. I have Dish Network and I had to add the multi-sports package which gives me not only the Red Zone Channel in HD, but also all the regional sports networks (the national Fox Sports channels) so I can watch a ton of college football on Saturdays too if I wish.

It's the best channel ever!

Thanks for the reply LMITOUT. I am a big football junkie and I am in 3 Fantasy Leagues, so I guess this would be a great thing to have to watch scoring around the league. Plus, they games on TV the past couple of weekends have been so DUMB! Who want's to watch the Jets against the Raiders. Come on now!!! And this weekend looks like a bunch of [PoorWordUsage] too. Cleveland and the Bears. So I guess I will be ordering the Redzone this weekend! Again, thanks for the info!

No problem.

Just so you know, there is nothing broadcast on this channel the rest of the week.......only between the hours of noon and 7pm on Sundays.

I have been getting the Red Zone free viewing and I find myself stuck on this channel for most of Sunday. Once they take it away from me I will be looking into getting this channel added!!! Fun to watch games out of your viewing area.

Can you get this through Comcast?

I want to get NFL Sunday Ticket, but not sure I really want to switch from cable to Satellite.

Yes you can order it for comcast. That's what I have. I already ordered and I can't wait for Sunday to arrive.

Just gotta call them and add it to your cable. It's like $7.99 a month.

    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
    • I like that you caught someone else taking photos of the feast too!
    • That's an impressive pile o meat smallie!! Wow did I start a ruckus with a misspelled word, I'll be more kareful next time!!😉
    • Looks like kind of an expensive grill though.........😱
