Anyone signed up to Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, or YouTube TV can watch NFL RedZone for free this Sunday. The last few months have seen a number of free previews become available to live TV subscribers, mostly from Sling, but this is one that’s being made available across the three most popular live TV streaming services in the United States.


In fact, this is actually the second time in the last few months that a free NFL RedZone preview has been made available. Back in September, the same three live TV services unlocked access for a day. If you missed that free preview, then this weekend is another opportunity to test out NFL RedZone without having to pay for a subscription.

The free NFL RedZone preview becomes available on November 6 and requires a subscription to either Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, or YouTube TV. As long as it is an active live TV subscription, the subscriber can simply watch NFL RedZone on Sunday without having to make any changes to their account or cancel before the end of the free period. Once the free preview does come to an end, access will automatically be removed again.


For those without a current live TV subscription and wanting to take advantage of the free NFL RedZone, Sling TV is the cheapest of the three participating live TV services with plans starting at $40 per month. A YouTube TV subscription starts at $64.99 per month, and while Hulu Live TV is the most expensive at $69.99 per month, Hulu does also include access to Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and basic Hulu as well.

Whether a new or existing subscriber, those wanting to maintain access to NFL RedZone after the free period will need to add the channel to their plan. Sling TV offers NFL RedZone through the $10.99 per month Sports Extra add-on. For those signed up to Hulu Live TV, NFL RedZone can be added as part of the $9.99 per month Sports add-on. If subscribed to YouTube TV, NFL RedZone can be added with the Sports Plus add-on, priced at $10.99 per month or $79.99 per year when signing up for the non-refundable annual plan.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
