Re: NFL Red Zone

It will be no different this year. Anyone on the Ultimate tier will still need to activate the RZ channel - even though it is included at no extra charge. Anyone who subscribed to RZ on another tier other than Ultimate automatically gets renewed as part of a sports subscription package - unless they cancelled it before the renewal period began.

Let's just hope, this this will be as easy as pressing the "Press OK to activate" button on one STB. Then 15 minutes later, we have the HD and SD channels on All STBs.

Speaking of which, we we have a Red Zone app this year? Similar to FIOS Football, when it was working?

Pretty sure you'll have to activate it on each box separately.

Thanks to everyone for their input - much appreciated.

Seems like a lot of work to receive a channel which supposedly is included in our package - don't you think?

And for all this I missed the first two weeks last season - not to mention the hours (yes hours) on the phone with customer service to get it straightened out. I almost left Verizon because of the aggravation from all this.

Seems to me if it's in our package we shouldn't be put through this bs to receive it - just my opinion. I'll believe I get it, if and when I receive it this year......

UnnDunn,

I very much Highly Doubt that one has to activate it on ALL their STBs.

Activation on 1 STB should enable it on ALL Boxes. Just like last year.

Its to authorize your account for your home, not to just authorize just 1 STB.

That would not make any sense at all.

Anyone want to verify this?

But I believe I am 100% correct on this.

Thanks

Same here. I have had Ultimate for years.

I was just about to post a "BTW, I never had to activate Red Zone this year" post. lol

Let's just hope, that next year will be the same as this year. Fingers crossed
