Called regular customer service today. Got a friendly voice on the line. When I asked if I could get just the Red Zone channel again this year I was told no, that's only available with the full ST. The CSR offered the ST Max package for $148 (half off) but when I asked again for just the Red Zone the CSR offered the regular ST w/Red Zone for NO CHARGE provided I stay with DirecTV for the next 12 months. Hell, I've been with them nearly 20 years now -- what's one more!


When I called to get the RZ channel they gave me the same deal, pretty awesome.

Got it on 1st attempt. Was easy as pie. Kind of surprised me though because I just got the HR34/HR24 combo for free 6 months ago. Oh well; they must like me.

friend of mine got a call today, said since he was a preferred customer, not late on a payment for last 2 years he was being upgraded to get all movie channels including NFL Sunday ticket, for a additional $5 month for three months. They said to call back in 3 months to cancel movies if he wants.

got a call from office of president and she still says there is no seperate redzone channel.
I told her other cable providers have it seperate. She says they are knock offs and not the real redzone channel.
Said there was no promos on getting ST.

Other way around. DirecTV's is the original. NFLN replicated it later on.

Yeah the NFL Network version premiered in 2009. DirecTV's was at least 2007 (when it went HD).

I cant believe that the office of the president wouldnt even give me Redzone or a ST promo. I told her that I have atleast 10 friends that got free redzone. And a couple that agreed to a new contract for ST. She said there was no deals, and no redzone.
I told her ive had directv since 1996 and never been late, pay autobill, pay over $100 a month and dont see why I cant get it.

I had to call yesterday to cancel some auto renewal sports, and while chatting with the cool CSR, I asked if there's any deals for the Max portion of ST since I already had the regular ST. She was looking and I said all I like from Max is RedZone Channel. She said she could add that no problem and it's there.

I emailed asking why I could not get Redzone while others were getting or getting Sunday Ticket at no charge. They called me, I still cant believe that they wouldnt offer anything.
