NFL RedZone is an American television station dedicated to football. The network has been operated and owned by the NFL since 2009. RedZone uses the NFL Network studios and the host is Scott Hanson. On Sundays it broadcasts a special game day program which runs from 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM (PT) or until the last match of the afternoon session ends. Sunday afternoon matches are all covered by RedZone, which are broadcast on CBS or Fox via “whiplash”. Verizon Wireless smartphones and the Dish network also offer RedZone.
The name RedZone comes from the red zone of a football field: the part between the goal line and the 20-yard line. The most exciting thing about RedZone is that it is a non-commercial service, and every time a match is in a commercial break, the transmission is moved to another game that runs simultaneously.
The RedZone channel connects 5 minutes before 01:00 PM ET on the day of the match, and a countdown clock will be displayed on the screen until the game starts. Once the RedZone program begins, live footage will be broadcast of all NFL games currently taking place. The show’s host, Scott Hanson, will begin presenting the details of events set to go down, highlighting key points which will interest viewers, until the teams are ready to start the game.
When the game begins, Hanson has a famous line where he states that seven commercial-free football hours are now beginning. Whenever one of the teams moves the game to the red zone, the match moves to full-screen. During this time, the other games are monitored and will be broadcast as soon as breaks take place to avoid commercials. Field goals that do not come from within the red zone will be transmitted either live or in a replay, depending on the importance of the match.
