    How is NFL's red zone different from Directv?

    It is a good deal @ $6/mo for the "Sports Pass" to get RedZone. Keep it for 6 months during the NFL season and its $36, then drop it.

    And its about time that TWC finally has NFL Network and they put it in the digital tier. When they took over for Comcast in my area and dropped NFLN, I dropped TWC. It took the lure of the Red Zone channel for them to finally spend the money on both channels.

    When you say "knocks any price D* ever gave me for ST in the dirt", I'm not sure how you can compare the price of a single RedZone channel to the price of the NFL ST with full live games? Although, I was able to get NFL ST for $99. And for $65 more then what you will pay to get the RedZone channel, I think its a much better value. And some DIRECTV customers are getting standalone RedZone for free. So that beats TWC's deal.

    but you were able to get that price because you're an individual and not a commercial establishment..unless I'm reading what you wrote wrong.

    ONLY PLUS D* ever gave me at the bar was the ability to pay for ST for the bar at season's end in 1 shot. No discounted rate...We're what drives the engine and bean counters at D* they need us. If there were any perks other establishments got......

    I

    NEVER

    GOT

    THEM!!

    I'm not feeling the pinch from not having ST at the bar so far..We get more Giants & Jets fans asking for the games ..So I'm cool what whatever other regional games CBS & FOX gives us on a given sunday...Pair that with Red Zone on some of my flats screens and I dont see myself shuttering my bar because I (me & my partners) decided to not get ST this year..We had a nice run from 2005 till 2011..Thats a wrap..In-fact I only got D* for my bar for the fantasy football faithful (Steady customers) that wanted access to the thursday night games on NFLN..ST was a throw in when I came on board..Plus D* has all 3 NY RSN's a must for my place...DISH has never carried YES network..and eventually lost SNY & MSG...One marriage I'm glad I never made, with DISH!!

    SO some 49eres fans came in on week 1 and asked ..OH no more ticket this year..I said yeah the wallet pinch was too much...Customer then said...do you have RED ZONE ?? I will THIS SUNDAY!!!

    so good for all you guys that somehow dealt with a nice CSR that likely didn't want to hear you complain about not having Red-Zone stand alone and just gave it to you to nicely get you off the phone...No sarcasm, really...Congrats to all you guys that were able to do that..Time Warner was very happy to take my order..

    D* didn't even try to offer me a discounted rate or package it in 1 big lump payment to retain me...AND NOW I'M hearing the 30 Minute capsules aren't available to commercial establishments this season...Thanks D* for a big bowl of what you cannot do..

    Game on everyone!! No more from me on this thread..Catch my posts on the HD anticipation board...Peace..

    I think theyre slightly different.

    Directv = Red Zone Channel.
    NFLN = NFL RedZone.

    Sorry, I wasn't referring to a business account. That is an excellent deal @ $10/mo. Especially if your clientele is mainly watching local games. Then the RedZone channel is where they can watch their fantasy players scoring.

    I am in a TWC area and already hearing the rumblings about Red Zone due to last week's announcement.

    I don't get to see my favorite team this week so I thought I'd call DirecTV and try to get Red Zone based on the fact I could now get it from my internet provider, TWC, if I switched to their TV service. At least that way I could see some key plays of my game this week.

    The lady was really nice and said that based on my account we can have Red Zone for 2012 season. She put it on immediately.

    Thanks DirecTV!

    Furthermore, she said DirecTV's version of Red Zone is exclusive. ha.

    Out of curiosity...

    Does NFL Redzone have a host, like Andrew Siciliano, to provide additional commentary, updates, highlights, two games side-by-side, etc. or does it just jump to the CBS/Fox coverage of the games they are switching to?

    Thanks.

    As Hoos said yep scott hanson from NFL Network hosts.
    Does all that you mentioned even does a quad box of games at times.

    They are basically the same.

    First thing I noticed yesterday in switching between the two. Directv went to highlights only at 4:15 approx PT while the Comcast red zone feed kept going to 5 P.M PT. (I have both systems until the Pac 12 - directv situation resolves itself.)

    Distinction without a difference. If this were a trademark dispute it wouldn't fly.

    I don't know how many conversations I've had where I mentioned watching Red Zone and then need to then clarify it's DirecTV's Red Zone, not the NFL networks Red Zone, and then need to go into the whole history of the thing for my non DirecTV friends.

    You said they only showed announcers. Can you explain what you mean by that? Are you saying you only saw camera shots of the announcers (commentators) in the booth or you only heard the commentary without video? I'm not sure what you mean...
