1422i4333302FDDFF2F92With hundreds of channels and thousands of video-on-demand titles to choose from, FiOS TV can keep you busy.  During the next month, we’re giving you a chance to add some new programming to that list with four free previews.


Starting Monday, just in time for the start of the U.S. Open, the Tennis Channel will be free for all FiOS TV customers until September 12.  See what happens to the women, with Serena Williams out of the competition, and follow top-seeded men’s player Rafael Nadal.  The Tennis Channel, found on FiOS TV channels 303 in SD and 592 in HD, is available year-round to FiOS customers who subscribe to the Ultimate HD package.


In mid-September, FiOS subscribers can get their fill of movies and football with free HBO, Cinemax and the NFL RedZone channel.  First, from September 17-19, our customers can catch up on missed episodes of HBO’s “Entourage” and “True Blood,” watch as many movies as possible on HBO and Cinemax, and check out the premiere of HBO’s newest series, “Boardwalk Empire.”  Check it all out in standard-definition (HBO: 400-413, Cinemax: 420-431), HD (HBO: 899-913, Cinemax: 920-931) and FiOS TV Video on Demand.


More of a sports fan?  That same week, on September 19, the NFL RedZone channel will be free of charge for FiOS TV customers.  The NFL RedZone channel offers a look at the touchdowns and other important plays from the games taking place every Sunday afternoon.  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 in both HD (channel 835) and SD (channel 335).  The NFL RedZone channel is included at no additional cost for customers who subscribe to the FiOS TV Ultimate package, or for $49.99 per month for all other subscribers.


As readers of the At Home blog know, FiOS is made for football.  We recently told you about all of the other options for football fans, including our ProFootball Widget, Fantasy Football Widget, and ESPN3, a free online service for Verizon broadband customers that includes live college football games featuring the nation's top teams, as well as replays of those games from previous weeks.


So whether you’re a tennis fan, a movie buff, or you just can’t wait for football season to start, we’ve got something for free for everyone in September.  Check out the free previews next month and let us know what you think.

Red Zone is $50 a month?!?! Wow. Pricey!

Fortran – NFL RedZone is actually a great value for all that the channel offers.  Also, keep in mind that many of our cable competitors require their customers to subscribe to a sports package with a monthly rate that equals much more over the course of a year.  Check out the free preview on the 19th to see if you like it.

He was pointing out that Red Zone is 49.99 for the year and not per month.

I have the NFL Sunday Ticket with Directv and the Redzone channel is my favorite when I'm not watching a specific game...  $50 a year is well worth it...  you'll see every score from every game... they do jump around alot to the various games but the pace is great and they do all the work of channel surfing to the games for you...
