    Because you can only see one game at a time. With RZ you see everything exciting that happens with every team. I use two TVs, one on "the" game and one on RZ. Football heaven!

    RZC gives me everything I need! All killer, no filler. And now that it's on TWC, I don't have to worry about CSR roulette w/ DirecTV. Sorry, but paying $200-$350 for the various incarnations of ST seems as outdated as VHS.

    I got RZ for free last season. I wish they would offer the RZ channel for $99 for the season, I'd buy it. I don't know how they make any money giving it away for free.

    They don't, it's just a retention strategy. You mention another provider has RZC, DISH for example, and depending on your account status they may offer it for free. DirecTV pays substantially more for ST and if they were to offer RZC as a standalone they would undermine their strategy.

    I wouldn't pay $99 for RZC, but I would pay $49. The $36 I pay now, $9/mo. for 4 months (Sept.-Dec.), is pretty close.

    At $5.82 per week or 97 cents per hour, I'm not complaining. And it's much better than the free version.

    Not if you have a HR34. You can split the screen in half.

    Personally I really wouldn't want to give up the screen real estate.

    Not saying I do either but its not true that you can only watch one game at a time.

    I use my TV's pip and two boxes to switch games on and off. Full screen when I want, dual when not. I also use fios for local and have a set of buttons on my remote to quickly flop among 6 games. Well, usually 5 with one being red zone.

    It's the remote control Olympics!

    I normally just watch my main game, then when it goes to commercial, switch to the mix to check on the other games, which also lets me know when mine comes back, then just switch back.

    Don't have a 34 or want one but I do have 5 DVRs. I have never liked split screen or PIP, need to see the full screen.
