Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV are all providing their subscribers with a free preview of NFL RedZone this Sunday. If already signed up to one of these live TV services then there’s nothing that needs to be done other than tuning in on Sunday. For those not signed up to a live TV service but looking to get in on the action, then Sling TV is the cheapest of the three services participating in the promotion.
NFL RedZone is a popular channel with NFL fans, but it is not one which can be easily accessed without paying extra. For example, Hulu Live TV charges an additional $10 per month for its sports add-on which includes NFL RedZone, while both Sling TV and YouTube TV charge an additional $11 per month for their respective sports add-ons with NFL RedZone.
This Sunday, however, subscribers of all three of these services will be able to watch NFL RedZone for free. While it is unusual for competing services to offer the exact same promotion at the same time, this one is in conjunction with the NFL. As explained here, various partners will all be offering an NFL RedZone Free Preview on September 25th, and not just live TV streaming services. For reference, and while fuboTV does offer NFL RedZone as part of its own $10.99 per month Sports Plus add-on, fuboTV does not appear to be one of the partners taking part in this week’s free preview.
For any homes that are not currently signed up to one of the services offering a free preview this weekend, Sling TV is going to be the cheapest option overall. The Sling Blue plan costs $35 per month and this compares to YouTube TV’s base plan at $65 per month, and Hulu Live TV’s base plan at $69.99 per month.
While these prices are the usual rates, all three live TV streaming services also happen to be running various promotions at the moment. For example, Sling TV’s first month is half-off (down to $17.50 per month), Hulu Live TV is offering $20 off (down to $49.99/month) each of the first three months, and YouTube TV is offering $10 off (down to $54.99) for each of the first three months. Therefore, anyone signing up to any of these services before Sunday will not only benefit from free NFL RedZone, but also a discount on their first month.
