    Just wondering if anyone has any insight as to if Dish and the NFL are going to get an agreement before the season starts.

    NFL Network 154 is back on. I do not subscribe to red zone 155, don't know if that is now available. In past years, red zone is free on first Sunday of season, not this year.

    In some years, they did the second Sunday for free instead of the first one. Since this contract was reached (and the channels were restored) literally at the last minute, I would not expect the free preview until at least next week.

    Glad those two channels are back :) . Too bad Sinclair, Apollo and Mission are not reasonable. Their bad deals are their problem :angry:.
