Sling TV is Adding The NFL Network & Red Zone




NFLAfter over six weeks’ blackout of the NFL Network on Dish the parent company, Sling TV, says a deal has been reached to bring the NFL Network and NFL RedZone back to Dish and add it to Sling TV.

Cord Cutters News has just received conformation that the NFL Network will be coming to Sling TV and the NFL RedZone channel will also join Sling TV. No exact date has been announced but both channels will be available before the start of the 2016 NFL season. Yet it does sound the NFL Network and RedZone will be a add-on. For now no official word on price or packages have been announced at this time.

“These networks will give Dish and Sling TV customers the inside look at a favorite American pastime as we approach the NFL seasons,” said Dish’s Warren Schlichting,executive vice president of marketing, programming and media sales.

In a brief statement spokesperson from Dish said it “has reached a multi-year agreement with NFL Network for carriage of NFL Network and RedZone. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.”

We do want to note that this is exactly what we predicted would happen back in June of 2016.
