In an effort to hook viewers into ponying up for subscriptions, the powers that be have made the NFL RedZone Channel and NFL Sunday Ticket — which grant viewers godlike powers to scope out the action on Sundays — free this weekend. Sunday Ticket is available to DirecTV customers, while RedZone, usually packaged with NFL Network, is accessible via most major cable providers.
The news comes via Pro Football Talk. RedZone Channel skips among all the games airing on Fox and CBS Sundays, while Sunday Ticket lets you select which games to watch. DirecTV also produces a channel called “Red Zone,” included with Sunday Ticket, that does the same thing as RedZone.
