NFL RedZone statsAlways wanted to know what  NFL RedZone  was like? Well, here’s your chance.
Verizon FiOS TV is offering all of its subscribers  NFL RedZone for free Sunday, Oct. 4. This “freeview” will be available during the early games from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET, so you’ll have plenty of time to get your fill on the afternoon’s NFL action.

If you’re a football fan and want to check it out, the “freeview” will be available in high definition on channel 835 and in SD on 335.

Besides experiencing all the critical plays when any team is inside the 20-yard line, you’ll also have the chance to sample a widget with one stop easy access for NFL stats.  And, if you subscribe to NFL RedZone,  you can use a unique feature of the widget to set on-screen alerts whenever a team is moving inside the opponent’s 20-yard line.

Like what you see? If you don’t already have NFL RedZone, you can click your remote and subscribe right on your TV screen: just click, confirm and you’re in. The season subscription costs just $49.99. The service can also be ordered either online by visiting or by calling 888-553-1555.

Be sure to check back in on the At Home blog to let me know how you like NFL RedZone.

Why has the picture quality on the HD version of the channel gotten significantly worse since Week #1.  Some of the games from yesterday had poor picture quality.  Seems like Week #1 was fine but something had happened since that has caused the picture to be affected.  It has also been noted by other users in other areas who are subscribed to Verizon.  Appreciate any feedback you may have.

Thanks for the freeview of the NFL RedZone, but it will not make me a subscriber.  Honestly, this channel should be included in the sports package.  Please stop trying to nickel and dime your customers when you get good content.

Thank you for letting me know about this.  I checked around, but I couldn't find any reports of this issue.  The best feedback I can give you is that when you experience a FiOS service issue, please report it to Technical Support while it's happening.  That way we can troubleshoot it right away.  Based on your comments here, we'll be watching for it this Sunday, but please call 888-553-1515 if it happens again.

No HD preview for most people.  I called Tech Support and they said it was know.  I asked if they were working on it and was told "Good Luck with that, Goodbye".  Thanks, Verizon!

The free preview is working just fine for me in North Texas. I am not going to buy it, but it is somewhat interesting to watch.

All my friends with Comcast got Redzone because they subscribe to the sports package.  No extra charge, nothing to order. It just showed up.  I not only subscribe to the fios sports package but I have every package you sell and you've got the cahones to tell me I can't get Redzone unless I pony up another $50?  You can break it down any way you want, season, not the season, monthly cost, weekly cost.  It's still another $50 you want me to pay for something Comcast is providing their sports package subscribers for free.  I never thought I'd say this, but when my bundle contract is up I may just switch back to Comcast.  At least they look you in the eye when they screw you.
