I believe it is only on during the REGULAR season and only while the games are being played. Otherwise they just run the splash screen. It's not on during the pre-season.

Yes, you will not see any activity untill Game Day of regular season. A good way to check your subscription is to put the channel on around 12:45 on the 9/09. It will show a countdown.

No what the OP means is that since he has ultimate he should get a message that says "you are already subscribed to this channel".

But the message instead says about calling to subscribe to the channel.

It makes it confusing & would just be easier to just give that subscribed message.

I too subscribe to the Ultimate HD Package. I believe I have always gotten NFL Red Zone when the Season started for the past year or two. But this Splash Screen is very confusing.

So, my question is : Even though the splash screen shows that Weird "Press OK" screen, that I should just ignore it until September 9th, and then tune to the channel, and I should def see the countdown and Red Zone in full for the remainder of the season, as I have in the past?

Since Red Zone is apart of the Ultimate Package.

Thank You

It is ironic the NFL Red Zone channel has been on since the season was over and before the season they decide to turn the channel off and mess up the splash screen so people who are subscribed are not told that on screen.

Also they are still showing the old NFLN logo on that screen.

The new logo is the NFL shield + the word Network.

Its wierd cause they have it correct in the program guide channel 588.

Don't forget that FiOS could decide to remove NFL Red Zone from the Ultimate tier.

why would they pull it off the ultimate pack?,unless they come up with some kind of sports package, or just remove it altogether, or maube are able to somehow get nfl sunday ticket, which i dont think they can do because directv still has exclusive rights.

So they can charge for it like they do for Extreme HD. Those who really like the channel will subscribe, those who don't, won't.

The NFL does not want RedZone off a package. It means less subscribers for them.

When I press OK for more information it tells me "You cannot order this package through the remote as a change to your plan might be required."

Thats 100% wrong. I have Extreme HD and the channel should be included.

Why does Verizon let stuff like this happen?
Just turn the channel back on already.

I meant Ultimate HD.

NFL Red Zone has never been included in Extreme HD.

well if they remove it from the ultimate package and charge you for it i wont get it ,that channel is annoying to me when i watch a game i dont want to watch 10 games at a time! I just cant get used to it.irather watch 1 game live and record the second and watch it later.but thats just me i know a lot of people enjoy this channel,i only have it because its in the ultimate package that i have, otherwise i would never add this channel if i had to pay seperatly for it. If i really liked football like a lot of you do i would of just stayed with directv and payed for the sunday ticket.

The advantage of redzone over sunday ticket for alot of people is redzone does all the work for you & you dont miss any big plays.
With sunday ticket its just impossible to do that.

My brother in law has Direct tV and the ticket.
He finds himself mainly alternating between the Ticket Red zone channel and the local team
Had the NFL Net Red Zone channel been available for $50-55 separately he would dump the full ticket and jump on that.
