TV Answer Man, I heard that the RedZone channel will be free this Sunday. Is that true? Do you know who will have it for free? I saw it once at my friend’s house and it was very cool. You felt like a TV producer watching all those games flying at you! — John, Miami.

John, it’s true. YouTube TV, Hulu Live, Sling TV and Dish Network this Sunday (November 6) will provide a free preview of the NFL RedZone Channel, the NFL announced today. 

The NFL RedZone Channel offers live look-ins at NFL Sunday afternoon games when one team is inside its opponent’s 20-yard-line. If you don’t have the NFL Sunday Ticket, it’s a great and relatively inexpensive way to follow the key moments in all the games.

Four live streaming services now carry the RedZone Channel:

* FuboTV, which charges $69.99 a month for its base plan, has the RedZone Channel in its Sports Plus add-on package, which costs an extra $11 a month. (Fubo is not offering the free preview.)

* Hulu Live, which has a $69.99 a month base plan ($20 a month off for first 3 months in limited time offer), includes the RedZone Channel in its Sports add-on package for $9.99 a month extra.

* YouTube TV, which has a base rate of $64.99 a month ($10 off each month for the first three months in limited-time promo), has the RedZone Channel in its Sports Plus plan which costs an extra $10.99 a month.

* Sling TV, which charges $35 a month for its base package (now half off the first month), normally includes the RedZone Channel in its $11 a month add-on package called Sports Extra.

The channel is also available on Verizon FiOS, Optimum, Dish, Spectrum TV, Comcast and Cox. DIRECTV includes the RedZone as part of its Sunday Ticket Max plan, but it’s not available as a separate purchase or part of a regular programming bundle. The satcaster’s sister service, DIRECTV Stream, does not carry RedZone.

The NFL mobile app carries the RedZone Channel as a separate subscription for $34.99 for the entire season. You don’t need a subscription to either a cable/satellite operator or a live streaming service.
