NFL RedZone


NFL RedZone is the perfect spot to watch all of your NFL action. During the regular season, this exclusive channel flips to the major plays of all games that are being played. Unfortunately, this service is not offered during the postseason. 

What Is NFL RedZone?

The highly popular service is a special gameday broadcast that stems from the NFL Network and is commercial-free. What makes this service so appealing is that fans will be able to keep up with all the major action in all games. When a team enters the red zone (inside the 20-yard line), the network will switch over to that channel, so fans can see a potential scoring play. These are considered the most exciting plays of the game. It’s a must-have for fantasy consumers. 

Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football are not a part of the service. The channel starts right at tip-off of the Sunday games around 1:00 eastern time. It continues to run until the final afternoon game is over. The show is hosted by either Andrew Siciliano or Scott Hansen, which pends on which version you get. 

How Much Is NFL RedZone?

As of now, this service is linked with the cable provider DirecTV. It’s a channel package for a steep price of $400 for the season if you purchase before the year begins. If not, you can access RedZone for about $66 per month when you purchase the additional sports packages and add ons. However, there are options for those who do not own cable and want to access NFL RedZone. 

Alternatives For NFL RedZone

If you are unable to access Sunday Ticket, there are a few other options. These are your best choices.

Fubo TV

The service offers a range of channels for regular television junkies, but it owns one of the best options for all sporting events. The base plan for FuboTV costs $59.99 per month. You can purchase the Sports Plus add-on with NFL RedZone running for an extra $10.99 per month. You can access the content for a free 7-day trial, but it will not include it.

YouTube TV

This is the most expensive option out there. YouTube TV costs about $64.99 per month. To watch the channel, you will need to purchase the Sports Plus package, which comes in at an additional $10.99 per month. YouTube TV offers a free trial, but you cannot access RedZone. 


Sling is the cheapest option on the market at $30 per month. The service’s “Sling Blue” option is the cheapest and includes NFL Network. If you want to access the package, then you will need to sign up for the “Sports Extra” package. This package is free for the first month with new users. Like Fubo TV, Sling offers a free trial, but you cannot access NFL RedZone with the trial.
