My house is in a very wooded area and for me to get Direct TV and the NFL package would require me to either a) cut down 5 trees which ain't happening, or b) pay an extra $2K to run a cable underground and then have a 40ft pole in my backyard with a dish on top of it, and even with that they would want some limbs trimmed to which would be more $$$. So I'm stuck with Comcast.

But they do have the NFL RedZone channel which kicks ass. Discuss....

I watch it all day long with another tv showing a full game followed by 2 computers with daily and yearly scoring up.

It's like crack. And the touchdown montage is orgasmic.

RedZone Rules!

I love it too. It's ideal for people that are in a fantasy football league.

Best part is NO COMMERCIALS!!!!

The host, Scott Hanson, is perfect for the role. Doesn't interject is personal bias, stays cool and calm, conveys relevant info. If ESPN did it I'm sure there would be some skinny chick in studio with a host and all sorts of artificially created excitement. Hanson is perfect and delivers the news as the news.

No commercials and auto channel switch. Don't mind if I do.


It's so hard to watch just one game now. It is indeed like crack.

We don't do commercials so here's some more football. All the games are in commercial so here's some replays of more football.

It's crack.

I just don't get the whole NFL broadcast business model.

So, DirectTV offers ever game, but charges $90 extra for RedZone (I think???)

No other carrier can offer every game, but most can offer RedZone for much less than the $90 that Direct TV charges.

Why not let EVERY carrier offer both?????? Then again, I'm not the commish of the NFL

They own the content. They can charge what they want. I get redzone for 8 bucks a month and a whole lot more as a sports package on cable.

Exactly, which means there are a whole hell of a lot of consumers out there willing to pay the money for Sunday ticket. Why would they limit their options to only Direct TV?

Direct tv signed a long exclusive agreement with the nfl for rebroadcast rights. It's all contract negotions. If the nfl could sell all games to cable they would.

Thought it was stupid when it first came out.

Last few years it is the ONLY way to watch Sunday football in my house.
