NFL RedZone was a revelation to NFL football fans when it hit the airways a few years ago. NFL RedZone offers live “whip-around” coverage of every Sunday afternoon NFL Game between 1:00 PM ET and 8:00 PM ET for the entire regular season.
The NFL Red Zone coverage constantly jumps around the NFL to offer live look-ins to NFL game whenever any team enters the Red Zone, or threatens to score. It’s commercial free, and during the few breaks in the action they show highlights, analysis and stats of the days games. If you want to live stream NFL RedZone, you’ll have a few options.
Get NFL RedZone with NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV
NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV is available through DirecTV to anyone who cannot get NFL Sunday Ticket at their current residence. For subscribers of the “Max” package, NFL RedZone is including in the deal. Subscribers of NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV MAX can watch the RedZone on a variety of TV connected devices and mobile apps. The price of the MAX package in 2021 is $395.99 (or 4 payments of $99) for the year. They do usually reduce the price at various times during the season. So, if it’s not something you’ll use much until later in the season, it may make sense to wait for a price drop.

Mobile users can subscribe to the NFL RedZone for $34.99 per year on the NFL App. This subscription applies to all mobile users, but only allow you to watch on mobile. You can’t use this subscription to watch on larger screens.
Finding how to subscribe to NFL RedZone on mobile used to be pretty tricky. Now, just hit the account & Settings icon at the top right and scroll down and you should see options for NFL Game Pass and NFL RedZone from NFL Network. Note: If you didn’t know, there are 2 versions of NFL RedZone. One that is hosted by Andrew Siciliano and airs on DirecTV, and another hosted by Scott Hanson that runs on all other platforms. This version is the version hosted by Scott Hanson.
Take note that the $34.99 for NFL RedZone mobile is an annual recurring charge. Be sure to go into your account and cancel at the end of the season if you don’t think you’ll want to re-subscribe for next season.
While watching on your phone may not be ideal for everyone, it’s still nice to have. I find myself watching when there isn’t one individual game that draws my interest more than others or as a “second screen” option while watching another game on TV.
