I’m In The Zone With This Channel

with one comment

T-minus three days until the re-emergence of the NFL Network’s Red Zone channel. Yes, I’m counting down the days. Even I’m ashamed of myself on this one.

Wait a minute –no I’m not.

For those that don’t know what this channel is, it’s only only from 1 pm – 7 pm and airs nothing but Sunday NFL games across the country. No commercials. I love it. Well, actually, when the 4 pm games come around, the channel goes to some post-game interviews, but that’s OK. I started watching this channel early on last season and after a few weeks I realized how much I preferred this way to watch football. Damn there are a lot of commercials during a football game.

And the better half? She HATES this channel. The first time she spent more than 10 minutes in the living room with this station on she began bitching because she had no idea what was happening. “They go from game to game. How the hell do you know what’s going on?” Guess that contributes to my pseudo-ADD.

The MLB/NBA/NHL networks do similar broadcasts on their stations, as does ESPN from time-to-time. However, there’s a difference between the Red Zone channel and what these other networks do. Having some studio talk, commercials and “bonus coverage” of games is one thing. Spending an entire afternoon going from game to game commercial-free is another thing.

I only turn on this channel 17 times per year, but it’s one of my favorite stations. God bless you NFL Network.

  1. I could not agree more. It’s way better than watching any one game, unless the Cowboys are involved.

    Comcast added Red Zone in HD this year, too. When I heard that exciting news and shared it with sfaJill, she just stared at me blankly and asked (in a total deadpan) if she was supposed to be happy about it.
