[quote name='surfdude85']sounds great! so can someone having classic bronze add the multi sports pkg, and receive this new channel?

'Fraid not. Need to have Classic Silver or higher WITH the MSP (Multi Sports Pack) to get the NFL Network Red Zone. You can't get the "existing" NFL Network channel anyway if you don't subscribe to Classic Silver or higher to begin with. :(

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?

So I believe we have the Absolute HD package if I remember correctly, will I get this channel? I'm assuming not since we never get any of the new GOOD channels.

I doubt it because you cannot add multi-sports to absolute.

What about Turbo HD. I have Turbo Silver now with multi sport. Based on past experiences I wouldn't think I would get any new channel, but I already get NFL Net. and have multi sport so ... maybe?

Hopefully this channel will only be tied to multi-sports and not the base package. (other than requireing the base pack to include NFL Net.)

NFL RedZone will be available within the Classic Silver 200 ($52.99/mo. with locals where available) WITH a subscription to the add-on package, Multi-Sport Package, which is $5.99/mo. Customers may also receive NFL RedZone in HD with a subscription to the HD add-on package. In order to receive HD local network programming, qualifying customers must also have a ViP®-series/MPEG-4 receiver and an applicable antenna pointed to either the 129° or 61.5° orbital location.

Just depends on what channels within the 200 or higher it is tied to. If they're all available in HD, then yes TurboHD equivalent packages will get it. If not, then no. That's more or less the reason any new channel is left out of those packages, they're carriage agreement requires them to be packaged with certain other channels. If those channels aren't available in HD, then it can't be part of the Turbo HD packages since the non-HD channel wouldn't be in them.

There's a promo for the channel at:

nfl.com/nflnetwork/story?id=09000d5d811f59b2&template=without-video&confirm=true

Looks well worth $6/month to me. They said in the video promo they won't have any commercials-- 6 uninterrupted hours of up to the minute highlights. Should be a big hit for fans of fantasy football as well as folks (like myself) who are stuck getting hometown games of teams they don't care about (it was painful trying to watch the Bengals last season).

Looking at and considering the Red Zone channel, which would require me to add just the $6 multi sport. Noticed on the Dish website the ad for this channel says "Hurry subscriptions are limited". What on earth does that mean?

Marketing 101. If you say something is limited, and at a great price, everybody in the world will jump on it quickly. If you say, join at your convience, people trickle in. You know Dish wants this Channel to kick off with a bang. I just hope, it doesn't mean they are including it in the Multi Sports pack, for a limited time.

Subscriptions are limited... limited to the number of subs they have :)

I'm not sure how Dish would limit this anyway.

If the only way to get NFL RedZone is to subscribe to multi-sport... then anyone subscribing to multisport would get RedZone.

Dish would have to stop signing people up for multisport just because of RedZone... and that wouldn't make any sense at all.

In order for Dish to have such a limitation, it would mean RedZone would have to be authorized as a channel not part of any other package... which doesn't sound like what they are doing.

So this kinda has to be a smoke & mirrors marketing thing, because I can't figure out any way they could actually limit access to RedZone as part of multisport without limiting multisport as well.

when i had DirecTV i had the sports package for a while, but dumped it. you can only watch SO many channels showing "best damn sports show" over and over with very little actual "regional" sports shows. i'd like to receive the new Red Zone channel, but don't feel it's worth taking on the sports package just to watch a channel ONE day a week.

Myself, I don't keep the multisports pack all year. Only during the college football season. 6(7) Really good College games this weekend. NFL Redzone is just a bonus for the package, and I will drop the package, as quick as football season ends. I couldn't believe, I could see my Daughters College DivII play in HD no less this weekend. GO CW WILDCAT's.
