    I appreciate the responses. I'll call again tomorrow. Hopefully, I can at least get a good deal for NFLST as mentioned above.

    I changed to DTV because there was a good deal running with free HD and receivers and would lower my monthly bill to ~$60 for the next two years.

    Pretty bummed out about not being able to get NFL Network's RZ, though. Had it last year; that channel was indeed awesome.

    By the way, RedZone is in HD on Comcast this year. In the 700s (don't remember exact number).

    Redzone is THE only way to watch football in real time. All your commercials on the game your watching, you just flip over and catch up on everything.

    It is awesome.

    What you can get with multiple calls:

    -$150 total for Sunday Ticket
    -$20/off a month for six months
    -Free Sunday Ticket Mobile
    -Free HD for life (mention Dish's deal)

    Comes out to $30 for the whole shebang.

    That's how much it is with comcast, and you get their entire sports package with it (ESPNU, comcast spots, CBS college sports).

    One overlooked advantage of Redzone. For the afternoon games, which are always less than the noon games, they often show almost all of the "main" game since the red zone opportunities aren't that frequent for the few remaining games.

    Not a bad option when your local stations don't have the main double-header game on CBS/Fox for whatever reason (usually regional restrictions due to the home team).

    I have to say, after a day of watching Redzone on DTV, I see no point of Sunday Ticket any more, unless you are a fan of some out of town game. It's flawless channel surfing for the lazy, and no commercials.
