    I never threaten to cancel, just call and ask for free Superfan, if they say no thank them and hang up. Try again the next day. Eventually I get a CSR that says "no problem"

    +1!! That's exactly what I do too!! I tried the mix channel...too tedious and glitchy to move from one game to another. THE RZC channel is perfect to complement my local Giants/Jets games. Plus, I agree, with all of the Thurs., Sat., Sun. nite, and MNF it simply dilutes the value of ST. I have seriously considered dropping it and I am an ORIGINAL ST and D8TV subscriber!!

    IF RZC is available by itself, I think I would do that vs. the full ST. In fact, I would have thought there are so many of us, D*TV could really screw themselves, but based on this thread alone, many of you disagree with some of us.

    Fingers crossed??!!??

    +1 again!! EXACTLY my experience too!! Last season, it was almost exclusively the RZC on one of the doubleplays and my local on the other. The mix channel was too much for me to keep up with and like I said moving around in it was a little slow and glitchy for me.

    Only peeve with the RZC is it signs off too early -- will that be fixed???

    They have always gone off when there were 3 games or less in the late slot. If they were to "sell" it as a stand alone product I would hope that it would stay on all afternoon.

    Does anyone know what the NFLN version of RZC does in the 3 game only situation ?

    Also, i love the redzone when my team is not playing and i dont think that it reflects the short attention span of the fans. What hurts the fans is touchdown & extra point, commercial. Then kick off followed by commercial. So basically from the time a touchdown is scored there are two plays in a 6-10 minute span.

    I just went on DTV's website to try and add the stand alone redzone channel and couldn't find anywhere to add it.

    Is there truth behind this PDF file? Like others, I don't want Sunday ticket because it costs too much but would love to have the redzone channel... Anyone else try adding this online or do you need to call them?

    Either way, I hope it can be done...

    This is thread you want
    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=177934

    Surprised you dug this up considering that one is active and has successful reports of people getting RZC standalone.

    Wow, that is weird. What came of this pdf file? I understand that there is another active thread for RZC, but that is for people who are getting it for free, this is talking about an additional fee to get just RZC.

    If this pdf is legit, why are all of the CSR's saying it is not available stand alone? Anyone have any success with this pdf? Sure I would love to get RZC free, but I have only been a customer for about 2 months and have been shot down a few times already and I would be more than happy to pay a reasonable fee for the RZC.

    The PDF was just a survey.

    Doesn't really seem like "survey" wording to me. If it was a survey you would think it would say things like "Would you be interested...., etc." It looks like it is referring to talking to customers who are debating whether to renew their ST subscription or now, not really a survey.

    I understand that is what it said in the first post. Well I guess DirecTV sucks at writing survery's because reading that pdf does not imply it was a survey, period.

    Oh well. I guess I will have to give it some time to see if they ever offer RZC separately (to more than select individuals) and if not, I will have to consider suspending my account during football seasons. I understand that "value" of ST, but I would never flip between more than one or two games at a time that are currently being shown and I certainly wouldn't record them for future viewing. So to me, the RZC is perfect, especially being a Fantasy Football nut.

    When I signed up, I was hoping I would at least get offered some sort of discount on ST, but so far, I can't even get that.

    The PDF isn't mean to stand by itself. It's just a part of the survey. :rolleyes:
