    My acct is in good standing. I have auto bill pay. I have Choice extra classic. I have HD service, HD extra pack, DVR service, I have 3 HD DVRs and 1 HD recv.
    I pay over $110 a month.

    Only credits I get is the $10 off for HD. They also gave me 6 months free Starz during the Viacom dispute, I didnt ask for it, they just gave it to me when I called and ask the status of getting the channels back.

    So, did you initiate a call to the President's office? Or an e-mail?

    How many times a year do you call DIRECTV®?

    I emailed office of the president. Only time Ive called was with the Viacom dispute. I didnt ask for free stuff. Only when we could expect channels to come back.

    I just don't know what else to say. I have gotten RZC without ST for free 6 years in a row.

    I had NFLST from 1997-2006.

    Ah, darn. I was hoping for some clue as to why that is. Sorry, I don't have any suggestions.

    Called on monday and talked to retention. They were offering ST for $149 but I politely declined. I just simply mentioned that other existing customers were receiving red zone standalone.

    She then looked at my account and said the she can go ahead and add it. Chit chatted for a few minutes about the lions and then completed my call.

    I called and asked about getting the Redzone channel. I was told not without buying ST Max. I offered to buy Sunday Ticket if they would throw in RZ channel and I was told no. I'll be canceling next week.

    Cant say I blame you. I got it free for the last three years (offered to pay, but they wouldnt sell it ala carte). Then this past December I upgraded to an HR34 and it started a new contract. Now they wont give me red zone anymore...so I am getting it from Xfinity.

    I too got the HR34 a couple months ago. However, I was successful in getting free Red Zone regardless of the new 2 year contract. It seems to be luck of the draw.

    efff Directv... Time Warner just inked NFL Network & Redzone

    I will now pony up however many dollars the sports tier asks for at Time Warner (for my bar) for Red Zone

    Rather than the HUNDREDS of Dollars Directv is asking me to do..

    I called retention, mentioned Dish customers get Read Zone channel for free. Rep talked to a supervisor and was able to give me RZ for free. I have the base Sunday Ticket, I paid $150. I am under contract, just had a HR-34 installed in May.

    Thats the Beauty!!! it IS $5.95 !!!!

    it'd be a sky rocket price...if it was PPV stuff like

    MLB Extra Innings
    NBA League Pass
    NHL Center Ice
    ESPN Game Plan and the college BB plan.

    then yeah I'd have to pay commercial rate for the bar..


    From what I'm reading NFL Network's Redzone will land on the TWC Sports Pack..
    NFLN will be on Basic..

    think of it like this Sigma

    if D* ever put Redzone in the 600 channel range instead of asking you to take on Sunday Ticket in whole..Thus making D*s own version of red-zone fall into a PPV package..Thus commercial rate$ apply!! Pretty slick on their part..!!

    Thats where Red-Zone is gonna be on Time Warner..Sports Pack...not PPV

    Which we already pay for in the bar.!! mainly for GOL, NHL Network, NBA TV etc etc..and other stuff like Tennis,Fuel, FUSE, FOX College Sports, Fox Soccer Plus and BIG TEN and Pac-12...etc


    Thanks TWC..

    DIAL TONE..click to D*

    After paying $4 billion for an extension of the exclusive rights...it's not surprising that DirecTV wants to keep as many people as possible subbed to the package, rather than offering a prime feature of it as a stand alone. The NFL already made things more difficult for them by taking their idea for RedZone and creating their own version of it. Now DirecTV competitors can use it against them when vying for customers.

    if they did, my pub wasn't privy to it..it was ST or nothing from D*!!

    and if that was the norm on Comcast..i'm not aware of that pricing..That was the only Cable system in the NY area that had NFLN and Red-Zone..Comcast is in NJ...the NY metro 5 boroughs have TWC and CableVision..

    Cablevision/Optimum came on b4 the season started..and TWC today
