The first rep I talked to said the same thing. And having gone through the Versus channel debacle, as you did, I was gonna actually pull the trigger and switch to Dish. I get every Bears game and don't really need the Sunday Ticket even though it would be nice. But I would love to have the Redzone Channel. So when I called to cancel(my current 2 year contract ends in a week) I was given the Redzone channel free until 10/31. At no time did I say I wanted it for free. I was more than willing to pay for it, just not the whole ST. She said, of course we offer it as a stand alone channel. And she had no idea why another rep would say otherwise. I'm still wondering why she said it was the whole season yet it ends on 10/31.
