I decided to call Comcast last night and have the channel removed because it's just better for me to watch the actual game instead of all that flipping back and forth. Then the channel seems pointless during the 4pm games because it's only 2 or 3 games in progress during that time of the day. So that means since one of the games is showing in your local area, the Redzone Channel is only switching from two games

Anyone else dislike the redzone?

seems like the primary interest would be from fantasy football people, is FF still popular?

If my team is playing, I want to be able to watch the entire game, not only see the "red zone" plays. If they're not playing, I enjoy watching the Red Zone.

Actually, this is the ONLY Red Zone I've ever experienced.

I actually like the Red Zone channel - even though I don't have it. The regular NFLN runs through the prior season in the spring and summer with the Red Zone broadcast. And they did a preview week on the first week of the season.

If you like football in general, it's like having a remote - but they change the channel for you to hit all of the scoring plays. Obviously I don't like it enough to pay extra for it on top of my regular cable bill.

in order for me to lose interest in something, i would first have to have an interest in something. i have no interest in the redzone channel.

I still love the Red Zone channel, and think it ranks with air conditioning and the internet as one of humankind's greatest inventions.

I cut the cable cord a long time ago, but if there was ever a handful of reasons not to, this would be one of them. Red Zone was often 100x better than watching a game I could care less about because of the crappy match-up, or because a local team is involved in a 45-0 blowout as close games are winding down, and rules prohibit a network from switching from a game that has long ago been decided. Red Zone gives you a better idea than even those internet game casts as to what the situation is at any given moment, and way better than CBS and FOX can during their NFL broadcasts.

I'm close to this post. I love the Red Zone channel, especially as the games come to a close it's exciting as all get out. In fact I have started putting my team on the back up tv which is set up beside the big TV which is on the Red Zone Channel.

It just seems weird that the channel goes off completely as sopn as the 4pm games are over. If there was a highlight show that followed i would have never removed the channel.
