Comcast is adding this next month - early word is that VZ will NOT be adding it - which is a disappointment.

PLEASE get the Red Zone

I hate DIRECTV's customer service which is why I switched but boy do I miss the NFL and especially the Red Zone.

Certainly keeps me a subscriber here more that any kind of contract.

I do love FIOS. 

I would pay $99 for the channel

Don't make me hook up the dish just for this.

I really hope FIOS gets this channel.  They offer all the sports channels you can imagine, except NBA TV.Here is an interesting article about the channel.  It doesn't mention anything about FIOS but it seems alot of cable companies are against it.  It would be the perfect channel to compliment Sundays.  It will be a different channel than the RZC on Sunday Ticket for DirecTV.  FIOS don't let us down.

interesting find hamada.

thus, the battles continue with the NFL and cable providers.

it will be interesting to see what the rezone channel will show during non game times.  unless it plans to use it like ESPN 2 or something.

While this channel would be nice to have.. I largely think it's not a big deal/would likely prefer NOT to have it, as it'd just raise our bills. If verizon offers it, they should throw it in a sports package and charge extra for it, as the "average" fan/person doesn't care for this channel. If the NFL wants to give this channel away for free (slim chance), I say great. But, I'm sure verizon is paying enough for NFL Network as is.

The NFL should just use their own network for the Red Zone channel on Sundays. It isn't like NFL fans are watching the NFL Network on Sunday's.

If the NFL is not willing to "Redzone" the NFL Network then just make it a PPV channel, $16.99 per season. 

What a blatant money grab by the NFL. 

Dear Verizon, 

While I love the NFL and wish they did not extend D*'s Sunday Ticket exclusivity,  please do not add this channel if the fees the NFL wants are out of hand. I am not willing to pay more than maybe 25 cents a month for the 17 weeks of use. 

Thanks, 

Carl

It's unfortunate, but Verizon is slow, very slow, to update, it's sports programming. Why doesn't Verizon carry The NBA Network?? . The NFL RedZone Channel??, Sad to say, but I'm considering going back to Comcast

Verizon did show NBA TV for a couple days in July. It replaced NHL Network (SD only) for a couple days, which I guess was sort of a test run before launching the channel. As for the Red Zone channel, I'm indifferent. I can take it or leave it. I know that Comcast will have it on the sports package, so I guess Verizon would package it with extreme HD.
