    100% agree. Also if you play fantasy football, like I do, RedZone is a must so you can root for your player when that game is switched to on RedZone.

    I don’t play fantasy football. I can see how that would be helpful.

    I root for the same team as you, and it's usually the only game I watch in full. I don't really care about any other game, unless it's late in the season and another game matters to the Giants. Red Zone can be fun to just be able to watch the good parts of games.

    With all that, DirecTV is giving me NFL Sunday Ticket for free this year, so I have this and all the games.

    Yesterday, I tried to sign up for Sunday Ticket via streaming at the student rate, as I've done for the last several years. I still have one kid in college, but it kept telling me "student record not found". Guess I won't be getting Sunday Ticket this year.

    It's just as well, because last season, I was busy with other things on Sunday so often that it didn't seem work even the $100 student rate.

    Anyone have any idea how the adding sports tier works (red zone) in terms of timing

    Does it just lineup with my monthly bill or does it start when I start it?
    Wonder if I can just turn this on now or if I should wait until Sat/Sun to start it?

    I signed up last night. It said I would be billed partial for the reaming time this month and then in full going forward.

    I'll be switching to YTTV if Comcast stops supporting the operation of my exisiting cable card. I'm on a grandfathered comcast plan for our TV and 200mb service. the cost of YTTV will be covered by shifting to the competitor (Burlington Telecomm here in VT) for an internet only plan or strongarming comcast to give me similar pricing

    Anyone able to go to the free preview of red zone channel on YTTV?

    I added it to my guide but nothing shows up when I scroll through the live

    Same here. I'm thinking it won't show up until just before game time. I did notice that you can still sign up for a week of free Sports +, which includes the Redzone.

    RedZone just appeared on my guide without me doing anything. I watched a bit of it yesterday.

    The email I got telling me about the free preview weekend said you’re not supposed to have to do anything to see it.

    It's weird. On my custom guide I can add it

    But I can record it. Very weird

    I have Red Zone checked in the Live Guide, and moved it to the top of the listing. It doesn't actually appear on any of the devices.

    I can display it by searching for "Red Zone," however.

    I finally got Redzone in the Home screen and then it showed up on the Live guide, too. I have a hard time sorting things out when they have 3 games on screen along with the announcers from those games and the Redzone announcer all talking at once. I think I might mute it all and put on some music.

    I'm not in the target audience for Red Zone. I'm literally dizzy with all the game shifts.

    Red Zone holds no pull for me anymore because my team is trash and therefore always plays at 1.

    Put a 2nd TV next to your tv OR

    Just do what I did, Pats played at 1
    Record both
    Watch Pats game slightly delayed, skip halftime, and watch redzone after
    I setup this table to block the scroll at the bottom

    I use PIP on my tv. Switch around a lot. Miss Sunday Ticket on Directv. Easier to switch around when I had Directv.
