I’ve had the Sports Pass forever. Way back when it was a whole $1.95/month extra, but included only like 6 or 7 channels. Fuel TV, Tennis Channel, NBA TV and the three Fox Sports Diginets. I never really watched much on those channels but for only $2 buck extra, I figured what the hell, if I watch one thing a month it would be worth it. Now at $6/month and a ton more channels, I wouldn’t think of not having the Sports Pass. NHL Network alone is worth it for me, plus Big Ten Network, PAC 12 Network, MLB Strike Zone and now NFL Red Zone.
I’d say Red Zone alone would be worth the extra $6/month. And come January, you could always cancel the Sports Pass and resume again in Fall 2013. You’d essentially be $24/year for NFL Red Zone, $30 at most. For the previous two seasons, I’ve watched NFL Red Zone on my phone using the NFL Mobile app from Verizon. Sprint is my cell provider, and I was used a hacked version of the app that allowed me to install, use and stream content from the app, but I was unable to find an updated hacked version. So this year I’ve been watching DirecTVs version of the Red Zone channel, and while it’s okay. I like the overall presentation of the real Red Zone Channel better. So I am absolutely thrilled this deal finally got done. The NFL Network was never a big deal to me, although, since they have more games this year, I thought they deserved to be carried, but NFL Red Zone has always been what sparked my interests in getting this deal done between the NFL and Time Warner.
Glad to see this is done, can’t wait to get the channels up and running!
