True, baseball is a different game. The only minus I have (so far) is they sign-off before ALL the games scheduled for the day are over; NFLRZ does not do that.

I thought the intent was to give MLB Network a place to run their game drop in coverage on nights when a full game was scheduled on the main network channel? Once the full game is over the drop in coverage can return to the main feed.

It would be nice if it continued, just so one would not have to switch channels. Or perhaps simulcast 152 on 153 until the allotted time expired.

I was just telling my father about Red Zone the other day. They run from 1-8pm on Sunday OR whenever the last game of the day finishes. I believe they have a hard cutoff before Sunday Night Football goes on the air.

I would have thought the Strike Zone channel would do something similar... but maybe it is like James says and they switch back to the main channel for coverage once that channel isn't covering a game.

The NFL doesn't do that on NFL Network though... but then they aren't airing games on Sundays on their own channel... but they still started a separate channel for the whip-around coverage anyway.

The NFL Network's Red Zone (not to be confused with NFL Sunday Ticket's Red Zone) is a good offering for those who want to see the plays that will eventually be part of the highlight shows without subscribing to Sunday Ticket. It has a different purpose than Strike Zone.
