What Is NFL RedZone?

NFL RedZone is a special NFL program that broadcasts during the regular season every Sunday at 1 pm EST. Hosted by Scott Hanson, NFL RedZone shows fans highlights from every game happening that day.

NFL RedZone Cable Packages

Multiple cable providers partner with the NFL to allow their customers access to NFL RedZone. Cable partners include Verizon Fios, Xfinity, Dish TV and Spectrum. If you are already going to be paying for cable, then including RedZone as part of your package may be the best deal for you. Check with your cable provider to see how much adding RedZone to your cable service would cost.

If you have RedZone purchased as part of a paid TV service, you may be able to connect it with the NFL mobile app and watch RedZone on your phone or tablet as well. 

Note that the Red Zone channel available as part of DirecTV cable packages is not actually NFL RedZone but rather DirecTV’s own version of the program, hosted by Andrew Siciliano.

NFL RedZone Streaming Packages

Several streaming providers have NFL RedZone as an optional add-on. While this is usually a more expensive option than just buying it through the NFL app, it does allow you to access the program on your TV, not just your mobile device.

Replays of NFL RedZone for the entire season are available on the NFL app for those with an NFL RedZone membership or for those who have linked their cable subscription.
