I really did not expect it either. I will probably add the multi-sports pack for football season because of this.

Of course they picked it up. Now they can honestly claim that they carry every NFL game. They'll just leave out the fact that it isn't the whole game. :grin:

Is the RedZone channel available to DirecTv customers without having the whole NFL package?

Man. They found a way to get me to pick up the multi sports pack again for a few months.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

That isn't really known for sure, is it? Until now, the DirecTV's RedZone channel was the only one. How do you know that the DirecTV RedZone won't now just be the NFL RedZone channel?

It will be a lot different.

NFL RedZone is a new and different service than the Red Zone Channel offered by DirecTV to subscribers to the Sunday Ticket out-of-market package.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug 24, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- DISH Network Corporation (Nasdaq: DISH) and NFL Network today announced that "NFL RedZone" - a new channel from NFL Network - will be available on DISH Network starting on the NFL's first Sunday of the regular season, Sept. 13.

NFL RedZone, produced by NFL Network, whips around every NFL game on Sunday afternoons delivering touchdowns and the most exciting moments live and in high definition. When a team goes inside the 20-yard line, known as the "red zone," fans see the crucial plays as they happen. The channel keeps fans up-to-date in real time, switching from game to game with live look-ins, highlights and a chance to see every important play.
"NFL RedZone is the most exciting thing to happen to football since high definition," said Ira Bahr, Chief Marketing Officer for DISH Network. "There's no better way to kick off the 2009 NFL season than by changing the way America watches football, and DISH Network is pleased to offer consumers an opportunity to catch every touchdown and the biggest plays as they happen."

"Fans with DISH Network now have the ability to see the important plays from NFL games as they happen on Sunday afternoons with our new NFL RedZone channel," said Kim Williams, Chief Operating Officer for NFL Network. "We are thrilled to announce this deal with DISH Network that provides fans with an exciting new channel produced by NFL Network that complements the live broadcasts of NFL games."

Starting Sept. 13, NFL RedZone provides live action and real-time highlights from the 1:00 p.m. E.T. and 4:00 p.m. E.T. games. Host Scott Hanson brings viewers real-time scoring and fantasy updates from a new state-of-the-art NFL RedZone studio at NFL Network headquarters in Los Angeles.

NFL RedZone is broadcast in both high definition and standard definition on DISH Network Ch. 155 as part of the Multi-Sport Package, which is available to most DISH Network customers at $5.99 per month.

When I saw that Fuel was being moved from 155 to 156, and all the Redzone adds, I was holding out hope, that the redzone channel would just appear. Now I don't have to hope at all. YEE HAW

According to the NFL RedZone website, the DirecTV RedZone channel is different from the NFL RedZone channel being offered by DISH and cable outlets.

Well, I am now seriously thinking about switching to Dish full time. If only they would get CSN Northwest, I'd be set.

Does anybody know if this channel will show teams driving down the field, or just them in the Red Zone? For example, if a game goes to OT, will we see the OT as it happens, with team's driving, or will we only see it if teams go inside the Red Zone? It would suck if we can't see a team try a 50 yard FG in OT and the game ends and we weren't able to see it live.

They have already told the retailers that they are not allowed to use the terms: "out of market" or "sunday ticket" in their ads involving the new channel.

But what about "every game", "all the important action", etc? You don't think they're going to try to use this to make people think they have all the big football?

Even before they got this channel, in previous seasons they were advertising "football every night of the week".

In market-speak.... expect to see ads now that not only say "all the big games"... but "all the big plays" or "all the scores" or something to that effect.

And don't think for a minute that DirecTV, Time Warner, Comcast, etc., etc. wouldn't use the same market speak themselves.

Like the advertisement for the Redzone already says.
All the scores, from every game.
What a killer bonus for adding the Multi sports pack. Normally I and I know others do it this time of year for College football season, and now we get this as a great big cherry on the top.
Sundays, anchor one tuner to a game, and the other tuner to NFL Redzone, jump over any and everytime you see a score update, on games you are insterested in, or just have it PiP.

If the channel will be anything like DirecTV's version, they will only show the redzone action and scoring action. There are times where if no one is in the redzone they will pick a game or two and show the drives, then switch to a score, whether a touchdown or a field goal. Either way, the redzone channel is very much worth it. :)
