    So it shows up in your account under MY SPORTS ? Mine was there and has since gone away - I just got it, free RZ, about 2 months ago.

    No dice on RZ here. Just called retention. He did not deny that D offered it to other subscribers. Mentioned something about how they have various criteria they review for each account

    He did offer ST at 50% off if interested and would note my account if I decide to sign up

    Well it sure wasn't easy but I guess when I told the CSR that my local cable provider was offering to pay for cancellation fees of your current subscriber, I was put on hold and what do you know? I got ST for free for 2011!!!

    She kept telling me RZ wasn't offered as a stand alone channel. So, I asked when my renewal date was and I guess my $2000 a year I spend on Directv doesn't mean that much. She asked if I have ever gotten it for free and I said no. It took awhile, but it worked.

    I got the Red Zone Channel. I explained to the CSR that I didn't need the Ticket this year because the 49ers are gonna suck and I get the Eagles, Steelers, Giants and Jets games on D* and cable. She put me on hold and came back with the RZC for free.

    They could suck go 7-9 & still win that divison though.

    Looking at the tough scheds of all the teams in that divison winning it with a 6-10 isnt really that insane either.

    Not only did I get shot down for redzone they added the ticket without authorization. Not very happy right now!!! Just got 2 friends to sign up too. great way to treat loyal subs D* We need to come up with some type of package for NFL fans who live in their teams local market and the ticket is of no value to them. Helloooo REDZONE CHANNEL. What doesnt D* understand about nobody is going to order the ticket just for redzone.

    One year into my 2 year contract.
    Never subscribed to dtv in past
    Called number...did Cancel, Cancel
    All i said was I wanted to check if there were any football specials for my account.
    They asked if this was because of an ad i saw.. i said yes... free ST to new subs.
    She said they can offer me ST for 50% off with 4 pay
    I said what about RedZone..she said they can offer that for free.
    If if they RedZone...ST 50% offer will be off the table

    I just got it.

    I called yesterday and the lady said they could not do and had no way to do it

    I called back again today and another CSR said the same thing but she transferred me to someone that maybe able to help. The second CSR said the same. He transferred me to a third department and the same thing was said, "There is nothing in the system that allows me to do this even if I wanted to." I told him that others were able to get it so he transferred me to retention (even though I did not threaten to leave). Well fourth time was a charm.

    I told retention that I was not planning on leaving and they only transferred me here because they thought you can help. They noticed that I have been with Direct for over 10 years and I told them that I love DirecTV and one thing that keeps me with you guys is all of the great promotions I get even though I do not need them and was wondering if I could get RZ as a stand alone channel. I was honest and told them that I really do not need it, but it is one of those nice additional features that makes me brag about Direct to other people and makes me a very happy customer. She said she appreciated my kind words and gave me RZ as a stand alone channel.

    Just called in this Morning, Spoke with retention. Told her up front, I'm not leaving but would be interested in seeing if I could get some type of Combo deal on a Stand Alone RZC and NHLCI.

    Got the RZC Free of Charge and Got a $20 dollar discount for 6 Months to offset some of the NHLCI cost.

    One call, total time elapsed 4 Minutes

    Appreciated greatly by this long time customer.

    Thanks again D, keep up the Good work.

    I read elsewhere that someone got a pop-up saying that they hadn't subscribed and they could buy the RZC for $44.99.

    Of course this same person had already "scored" RZC for free.

    It would seem that something changed recently with respect to offering RZC as a standalone.

    Offering a standalone subscription for RZC for $44.99 isn't new?

    Red Zone wasn't that good towards the end of the all these noon games today. Slow to switch between games and zero use of a double/quad box. If there is one thing Red Zone should be using more is the double boxing of games.

    I love RZ channel, as I have no favorite team.

    But six hours of those %$#@& sound effects every time they A) switch games and B) alert us they are about to switch games is wayyyyyyyyyyyy beyond maddening.

    Overlay all the sound effects Fox and CBS insert during their games and you have a six hour Star Wars soundtrack.

    I have no reason to believe that they would lie about the offer. Do you?

    When I went to 703 on Sunday, it said I hadn't subscribed and that I could buy the RZC. As soon as I refreshed/reauthorized, that option to buy disappeared. My assumption was that if I clicked on the "Buy", I would pay the $45 for RZC for that day only; not for the entire season. *IF* the "buy" button even worked. ( have RZC as a free stand-alone channel -- no ST).
