NFL Red Zone sign up info and how to watch the live stream

Here we will provide information on how to sign up for NFL Red Zone this season. It is available to watch on the following cable TV and live stream platforms:

  • COX
  • Dish
  • Fios by Verizon
  • FuboTV
  • Hulu live TV
  • Optimum
  • Sling
  • Spectrum
  • Xfinity – Comcast
  • YouTube TV

Simply go to your cable or live stream service provider and sign in. Then, either search “NFL RedZone” on the cable company site or – for example – just Google “NFL RedZone Xfinity” or “NFL RedZone Cox” and there should be a specific page dedicated to the channel.

The channel is also available for DirecTV or Sunday Ticket subscribers. If you download the NFL app you will still need to sign in with cable TV or streaming service credentials.

How much does NFL Red Zone cost this year?

The cost for the channel varies from different cable providers and live streaming networks. To get NFL Network and the popular channel this year on Xfinity – Comcast, for instance, you would have to sign up for an additional sports entertainment package that costs $10 per month. So if you watched NFL Red Zone for the full four months – or all 18 weeks of the season – it would cost you about $40 total. Just be sure to cancel the package when the season ends in January if you are only interested in watching the Red Zone channel.

Can you watch NFL Red Zone on a free online app?

If you are going to watch NFL Red Zone this season you are going to have to pay. It can be as little as $5 per month or as part of a cable TV sports package that can run up to as much as an extra $30 per month.

Can you get NFL Red Zone by itself?

No, not anymore unfortunately. You can get the NFL Red Zone live stream by itself via the RedZone app but it will ask you to sign in with cable TV or streaming app credentials. There is no workaround.

Can you watch NFL Red Zone on your phone?

The NFL RedZone channel is available as an app and you can watch it on your phone. It is available through Google Play or the App Store by searching for NFL RedZone. If you sign up for the channel through your cable provider you will be able to watch it through the cable company streaming service on your phone as well. You may run into geolocation problems if you try to sign in to the channel at someone else’s house, however.
