The NFL Network and NFL Redzone are no longer available on Sling TV, and other Dish Network owned TV services. According to an NFL press release, the stations officially left Sling TV as of 9 pm on June 18th, 2020. The press release went on to give the following reason:
“While NFL Media remains committed to negotiating an agreement and has offered terms consistent with those in place with other distributors, DISH has not agreed.”
Grounded Reason reached out to Sling TV for comment and received the following statement:
“We are working with the NFL to continue carrying their channels. Our goal is to reach a fair agreement, bringing NFL channels back before the season begins so that fans don’t miss any live sports action.”
Sling TV could offer both of these channels at very competitive pricing, so hopefully, this matter will resolve before next season. While the NFL seems to be proceeding as normal, many expect the COVID 19 epidemic will impact the start of this season. One could speculate this expectation is also playing a role in the negotiations between Dish and the NFL. Both sides are still interested in striking a deal, so there is still hope for Dish and Sling TV customers.
However, if a deal isn’t struck before next season, there are still a couple of live streaming service left that carries both of those networks.
Where to Watch NFL Network and Redzone
Sling TV used to offer NFL Network as a part of their $30 per month “Blue” package with Redzone available through a $10 per month Sports Add on. Two services offer those channels: Vidgo and fuboTV.
Both are Available on Vidgo
Vidgo is a newer Streaming service that offers fairly competitive pricing over other Live streaming services. The only catch is they do not currently offer a DVR. Hopefully, that will change in the future.
Right now, you can get NFL Network as a part of their Core package along with over 60 other channels. Currently, new customers can sign up for the Core Plan for $29.99 per month. This plan is on sale, as it’s typically priced at $39.99 per month.
If you need NFL Redzone in addition to NFL Network, both are available on Vidgo’s “English Plus Package” for $39.99 per month (typically priced at $49.99 per month). This plan includes over 90 other channels.
Vidgo doesn’t force you into a contract so you can cancel any time. They do offer a 3-day free trial, which you can cancel within the first three days at no charge. Both sale prices are for three months. After the third month of service, the Core Package goes to its traditional monthly rate of $39.99 per month, and English Plus increases to its regular monthly price of $49.99.
Vidgo is supported on available on Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV. You can also stream the service on up to 3 devices at the same time. We have the full details in our guide to Vidgo’s live streaming service.
