The NFL RedZone channel this Sunday is available as a free preview on all four pay TV services, which is great. But…you still need a subscription to one of those four services to watch it.

Wouldn’t it be great if you get the RedZone Channel without having to pay anywhere from $40 a month to $70 a month for the privilege?

Well, guess what? You can.

The RedZone Channel is now available for $34.99 for an entire season — and it does not require a separate subscription to a pay TV service.

The catch: The $34.99 standalone subscription to the RedZone channel is only available on the NFL app on Android and iOS smart phones. So you can only watch the channel on a phone if you subscribe separately via the app. (Air Play, which allows Apple device owners to cast video to their TV screens, doesn’t work with the NFL app.)

Still, for cord-cutters, the mobile RedZone channel could be a great way to keep up with all the action, particularly if you don’t have a subscription to the standalone NFL Sunday Ticket.

The RedZone channel, which is also available as part of various streaming and cable and satellite packages, offers live look-ins at NFL Sunday afternoon games when one team is inside its opponent’s 20-yard-line. If you don’t have the NFL Sunday Ticket, it’s a great and relatively inexpensive way to follow the key moments in all the games.

Finding the RedZone can be a bit tricky on the NFL app because it’s not advertised on the home page. Click on Settings in the right hand corner of the app and you will see an option to subscribe to RedZone Mobile on the next page.

The RedZone mobile channel is separate from NFL Plus, the league’s new mobile streaming service.
