DirecTV, Hulu Live TV, and Sling TV are all offering a free preview of NFL RedZone this Sunday. The free preview provides a good opportunity to see if RedZone is the right subscription for you, or just to catch up on some football.

Plenty of services and subscriptions offer access to football each week, but NFL RedZone is one of the best options for those looking to watch football on a Sunday. Each week, NFL RedZone unlocks access to 7 hours of live football, including every touchdown from every Sunday afternoon game.

This Sunday (September 24), you’ll be able to watch every one of those touchdowns for free, if you are subscribed to either DirecTV (including DirecTV Stream), Hulu Live TV, or Sling TV. It doesn’t match which plan you are subscribed to either, with all base plan subscribers eligible for the free preview.

Due to the nature of RedZone only being available on Sunday, September 24th is the only day you’ll be able to watch for free through one of these live TV streaming services.

If not currently subscribed to any of these, Sling TV is the cheapest overall. The Sling Blue package costs $40 a month (currently half price for the first month) and RedZone is available to add to Sling Blue through the $10.99/month Sports Extra add-on.

At present, Hulu Live TV is the next cheapest. Hulu’s base live TV plan costs $69.99 a month (currently $49.99 a month for the first three months) and RedZone is available to add through the $9.99/month Sports Add-on.

DirecTV offers multiple plans to choose from, with the cheapest (Entertainment) package costing $74.99 a month (currently $64.99 a month for the first three months). NFL RedZone can then be added to the Entertainment plan through the $14.99/month Sports Pack add-on.

For reference, this weekend’s free preview of NFL RedZone is also available to Cox, Dish, and Fios by Verizon customers as well.
