Looks like Verzion is going to offer it as a PPV package. $49.99 for the season.

So if I understand the article, the RedZone channel is free with the sports package (I have the extreme hd package) but $50 for anyone else on PPV, or is it $50 for everyone.  I am happy FIOS is getting this WOO HOO!

 

Thanks.

Looking at the Multichannel article, and the Blog by Eric Rabe, it will be $49.99 for the season for everyone.

Maybe I am just being negative, but I cannot comprehend paying $49 for a channel that will air for a few hours on 17 Sunday afternoons.  The NFL Network shows nothing on gamedays except stats and audio from various games - they should be showing Red Zone coverage on their existing network, not asking for more channel space and MORE money.    Of course, the NFL knows all about making money, so I suppose this will be a great success.

Without knowing the details of the new agreement between the NFL and D*, I agree that this should be on th NFL Network. What NFL fans watch the NFL Network on Sundays? 

 

and yes, I am sure the NFL wants a nice little penny for this new package.

FiOS TV to Carry NFL RedZone
by on 09-02-2009 12:08 PM

 

How about seeing every crucial play from around the National Football League on a Sunday afternoon in real time?  That’s the idea behind the new NFL RedZone.  And when it launches on Sept. 13, you’ll see it on Verizon FiOS TV.

For the football fan, this is huge and we’re excited to be among the first TV providers to carry the NFL RedZone.  Fans get touchdowns and other important plays from the games taking place on Sunday afternoons.  When a team goes inside its opponent’s 20-yard line, fans will see the plays as they happen.  The channel will switch from game to game with live look-ins and highlights.

NFL RedZone is a subscription channel that costs $49.99 for the season.  It will be available on FiOS TV in both HD (channel 835) and SD (channel 335).

Now, I’ll be watching the Eagles every Sunday, but NFL RedZone will be a great way to see what the other teams are doing.  Not that I’d be interested in the Patriots or the Giants, of course.  But a lot of fans may just end up tuning into the NFL RedZone especially if they are tracking their fantasy football team or want to keep track of teams in other markets.  We’re excited that the NFL RedZone will be part of the offer from FiOS TV this fall.

PittFios-

 

Heck, people shell out $60 for a 3 hour UFC fight. $50 for 17 weeks is a steal! Smiley Very Happy

 

In all seriousness - I was excited as hell that VZ picked this up - but then they 'updated' the PR a few hours later with the $50 price tag. I'm not happy - but i'll probably pony it up.

AWESOME.

Thanks!!!
