    the offer i'm referring to isn't dtv satellite, it's at&t tv streaming + at&t fiber, and @ThAbtO is probably right, it's gig speed internet, i no longer have the flyer.

    I left a message on that DSL site. I'll just wait and see if they can help. I still cannot believe AT&T wants to charge $160 for a 155 channel TV package, when Xfinity is selling 200 channels for $85.

    I only use their Fiber 100mb @$50.

    The 1G @$39.99 will reset to $70 after a year.

    That is still cheaper than Comcast's Blast 250 with a data cap.

    ATT no longer will support DSL (internet over the phone wires.)

    Actually, I was referring to a web site, not DSL.
    At my office, we still have 15 Mb/s DSL from AT&T, and they support it.

    Actually, they will not support for new installations of DSL. Business class is different.

    I would hope not. If we had any other option available, we would throw that DSL modem in the trash. Goes out every time it rains. Hard for me to believe in the 4th largest city in the state, in the city limits, we have no high speed internet options except DSL.

    I know this isn't what you really want, but you can get RedZone using the NFL App for $35/season. Catch is it only works on phones (not tablets, not desktops, not casting to your big screen). But it does kinda sorta answer your question.
    NFL Redzone streaming is needlessly complicated to sign up for, so we'll show you how

    Tried that. The app wont let me past the "TV provider" screen, which lacks Xfinity and Comcast.

    Instructions are in the linked article:

    Outside of gameday, finding the NFL Redzone sign-up page is trickier:
    1. On the top-right corner of the next screen, press the profile icon.
    2. Look under the “Subscriptions” heading on the next page for the NFL Redzone option, and then select “Access.”
    3. Hit the “Purchase for $34.99 per year” option on the next screen and follow the sign-up process. If you’re already getting Redzone as part of a pay-TV package, you can instead select “Sign in to TV provider” to watch at no extra charge.

    Thanks, following the link on that article to download it to the phone from the computer worked and bypassed the provider login. Appreciate it.

    I never have figured out why they care what size screen you watch it on once you pay for it. Makes no sense.

    So I solved this, but Xfinity is either really dumb and lazy, or scamming all of us TiVo M-Card users.

    As someone suggested earlier, I went to Xfinity store and requested the Sports and Entertainment package without the X1 box. The person actually tried to do it and thought they could, but the system overrode them telling them I had to get the X1 box. So I took it thinking I could swap to a different input and watch through the X1 box when I want to watch RedZone.

    BTW, they wanted to give me the full X1 and I told them just to give me the Xfinity Stream TV Box which just uses an internet connection (wireless or wired) and delivers streaming content. That I way I don’t have to split cable coming in and could move it to other TVs in the house.

    So I set it up and configured it and verified that RedZone worked on it. But then, just out of curiosity, I switched back to my TiVo and checked the RedZone channel there and, you guessed it, it works there too.

    Bottom line, if you are willing to pay $5 more a month on top fo the Sports and Entertainment package to get RedZone then just get the X1 box and when they turn on the package it should work on your cable card input too.

    Glad you got around their BS for only $5/mo plus the package price. In my case, they lost a 20 yr customer. BTW, Football in 4K/HDR on DirecTv looks great, very noticeable difference between 720p and 1080i too.

    I hooked my old Premier up to my antenna to record locals that DirecTv doesnt carry (subchannels mainly), and connected one Mini to it for the bedroom.

    Now to see about selling my 1 yr old 3TB Bolt VOX with lifetime, since I will never go back to Xfinity again.
