DirecTV does not sell standalone Red Zone channel. Per being the exclusive TV provider for the NFL Sunday Ticket you must pay for NFL Sunday Ticket Max.
The cancel/restart suggestion by the agent shouldn't have even been mentioned. Sometimes there are special reconnect offers on the NFL ST itself, but no guarantee so it is a lot of hassle without certainty of getting what you want.
If agent can discount the NFL ST Max, then great. If not, then in the end it is your choice whether you get it or not. Sorry but DirecTV doesn't ever sell standalone Red Zone as they are setup to provide the full games.

I am very disappointed that I can’t get red zone and NFL network now. Are you making any effort to get these back? I can not get direct tv because I live in an apartment. If you are not taking steps to remedy this, I may switch providers. I am a long time customer and would hate to do that, but I really want to watch my team without going to a bar at 10 am. Please let me know what is going on!

Theres nothing to fix, the channel are gone because they couldn’t come to an agreement.
They never came to an agreement because AT&T never bothered to negotiate. Channel dump plain and simple.
“We have a long history of working with our distribution partners to come to fair agreements,” an NFL Network spokesman said. “That said, in order to come to an agreement there must be a willingness to communicate, to exchange proposals, to sit down and negotiate.
“Unfortunately, as it pertains to AT&T, we never heard a word from them until NFL Network and NFL RedZone were pulled from the AT&T U-Verse and DTV Now services. We’re disappointed for all our fans who will miss out.”

What is the status of NFL Network & Redzone being put back on Uverse.
I dont have access to a line of sight for DirecTV so that option is out.
I have Uverse specifically for this reason and there is no need to keep it if I cant watch live games and the RedZone.
Please provide and update and hopefully a resolution by Sunday!!!

I got sling the other day as an add on, also got a free roku express for my other tv thru sling ,I have a high speed connection , so my video quality has been great so far. I watched the pre-game show today, and the post game show , and it brought back memories how the nfl network covers the games. Wanted to tip people off that the next two thursday night games are nfl network exclusives tampa vs carolina, sep 12, and titans vs jaquars sep 19, if you live in the local market the game will be shown on local tv. if not you need nfl network to watch

Hi There @Wendywh,
Not to worry Wendy! Do we have a deal that might help you.
Since you cannot get DirecTV, because of an apartment restriction, there is an alternative.
Did you know that NFL Sunday Ticket has a streaming only site just for customers like you?
Please visit: NFL Sunday Ticket TV
The package that you are looking for is the "MAX" package, which includes NFL Sunday Ticket, Red zone and Fantasy Zone.
Check your availability at this site above.
Thanks for contacting AT&T Community and Forums,

We understand that you have a concern with NFL Network & Redzone. Don't worry, we can help answer that question.
However, as we continue to manage content costs, we could not reach an agreement with the NFL to continue to carry those channels on U-verse and DIRECTV NOW and so they were removed.
Please let us know if that answers your question.
Charles, AT&T Community Specialist
