Game Mix Channel (which displays up to eight games at once), will be found on channel 702 in HD. Red Zone Channel will be found on dedicated Channel 703 also in HD. And Short Cuts (NFL games edited down to 30 minutes) will be viewable Sunday night through Tuesday in hi-def on channels 704 and 705.
DirecTV’s online and mobile service, NFL SUNDAY TICKET To-Go, has added improvements including up to 14 streaming NFL games every Sunday, the Red Zone Channel, game highlights, and detailed stats. Live games will also now be available to watch on Apple’s iPad.
“We’ve made every NFL SUNDAY TICKET customer a ‘superfan’ this year by rolling in HD, Game Mix, Red Zone and Short Cuts to the package at no extra charge,” said Derek Chang, executive vice president, Content Strategy and Development for DIRECTV.
