NFL Redzone

I'm confused about NFL Redzone. Right now there is a free preview, but the free preview does not start until 7pm.

I thought Redzone was some kind of multiscreen live telecast, but if the free preview isn't until 7pm......

So what exactly is NFL Redzone? Thanks

NFL Redzone jumps around from game to game during the season. They typically just show one game at a time but if there are happenings in multiple games they will go multi screen. It jumps around quite a bit so it's not for everyone. You can't really get the gist of it during preseason as you don't have the same volume of games on at the same time like you do in the regular season.

RedZone is doing 4 free previews in the preseason.
There are 2 of them left, this Sat 8/23 and Thur 8/28 from 7p to 11p-ish.
The dates and times were chosen since there are multiple games on at the same time to give a example of what it's like on Sunday's during the regular season.

As far as what NFL RedZone is...it's basically live look-ins of the Fox and CBS NFL games on Sunday. When a team gets within the 20 yd line(the redzone) they switch to highlight that game. If more than one game has a team in the redzone they split-screen the games involved or switch back and forth alternating plays(sometimes on delay). It's also commercial free and during slow periods go to the studio and show highlights or preview further action.

The NFL Redzone channel is one of man's finest achievements. I rank it at #3, just below yoga pants.

It's not *usually* multi-screen - they only go "double box" (or triple, or ZOMG quadruple) when multiple big plays are happening simultaneously.

I agree with cheesesteak. I don't know how we watched football before RedZone and the imaginary yellow line!

My friend calls it the yellow zone because there are no bathroom breaks.

It doesn't bother me not to have it, but it's fun to have it when I do. Unlike some things, this isn't a "once I have used it I can't go back" thing. But I'm not a football junkie like some of your guys. I watch my team, and might flip around to other games if they are on. Only time I'd find it REALLY useful is at the end of the season when my team is fighting other teams for a playoff spot and I want to keep an eye on the other games. That's mostly how I used my Tablet NFL ST ticket app (with Redzone) last season.

Now if you are in a fantasy league, I would imagine it would be invaluable!

I am currently trying to figure out how to setup a 2nd TV in my main viewing room.

1 for Redzone and the other for the game

I usually have RedZone on the big screen and stream a game to my iPad with my TiVo Stream.

Just have Fios DVR's at my house, so have to figure out something

Just sucks when the Pats are on at 1 or 4, I end up recording both and flip back and forth w/ being more live on the Pats game

But 2 TVs would be ideal, I can do that easy if I can get 2 inputs

If it is your local market game, it will be OTA, you could put an antenna on the "Game" TV and hook your cable to the "Red Zone" TV

Yeah it's called watching the RedZone AND watching your game

What's wrong w/ that?

Not saying I'm getting the NFL rewind and watching every single game during the week!

I usually bring down the tv from my bedroom on Sundays and set it up in the living room with red zone on it and another game on the main TV.

So you don't see any of the 25-yard TD plays? How about 50+-yard FG attempts?

You get constant highlights. If Victor Cruz takes one 80 years for a TD, chances are you won't see it live, but they will cut (or split) right to it and show the whole thing!

You see 100% of the TDs and like 85%+ of the FGs

If Victor Cruz takes 80 years to score a TD, chances are I won't see it in my lifetime.

I'll sign up for the sports package on Sept. 1 just for NFL RedZone. Then in January I cancel it.

Call and ask if you can get the Red Zone for free. They hand it out very liberally.

The policy is, NFL Red Zone shows every touchdown - usually (at least) twice; once either live or right after it happens, and again in a montage when the last game ends. I say "usually" because NFL Red Zone has to go off the air at 8:00 Eastern, so if a game is still in progress, they might leave without doing the montage. I also say "at least" because every now and then the feed from another game will show the touchdown as a highlight to that game's viewers.

However, long field goals are not always aired, although they probably will show successful kicks of 60+ yards, and usually cut directly to live coverage for attempts at the record.

Yeah a lot of the times when it's a close FG of like 30-40 yards they do cut away, but then the announcer guy talks over the game and says it was made (or is missed or something weird, they do a replay)

I kind of feel the same way. I watch the Bears and that's about it.

But last year there was a free trial one Sunday and turned it on. I have to admit, I was mesmerized. I watched for about 30 minutes before I realized I didn't care.

There's always a free trial of the ST package, including RZC the first week of the season and I'll play around with it. Last year, because of the Madden 25 deal I had the ST online package (heck it was only an extra $40 over the regular game price) and I did use it when there were games on that mattered to the Giants. Otherwise, didn't really get the use out of it every week like I'm sure some people do. I like the NFL, but not enough to be a slave to it every Sunday. I'll watch the Giants whatever day they are on, and then I'm off to do other things. If I happen to be home and there's other games on, I might flip to it if there's nothing else on.

I can't even watch the Bears play live. I record most of it and I've gotten pretty good at hitting the 30 second skip just as the runner is down. That puts me right about when the next play is being run.

And let me state, for the record, I HATE HURRY-UP OFFENSES.
