Customers can now have access to more than 500 football games in crystal-clear high definition this football season. For only $39.99 per season, customers can also add NFL RedZone to their lineup. An announcement to this regard has been made by Cox (News - Alert) Communications.

Every NFL game on Sunday is scrutinized by NFL RedZone. Produced by NFL Network, NFL RedZone delivers the touchdowns and the most exciting moments. Fans are kept up-to-date in real time. They can switch from game to game with live look-ins, highlights, fantasy statistics and a chance to see every important play with NFL RedZone.

“Cox offers a great value for football fans this season with the option of adding NFL RedZone to their existing Advanced TV Pak,” said Duffy Leone, senior VP and GM for Cox in California. “Plus, customers can see more than 500 games in crystal clear high-definition without paying additional HD programming fees.”

A mix of both pro and college football games is available on channels like CBS, NBC, FOX, and ABC. They are also available on cable networks like ESPN (News - Alert), ESPN 2 and NFL Network. Every preseason game and eight Thursday Night Football games are offered by NFL Network. Exciting local high school football action is carried by Cox on Channel 3 in Orange (News - Alert) County and Palos Verdes. Cox also carries this football action on Channel 8 in Santa Barbara.

Local channels are offered by Cox in every package at no extra cost. Cox also offers FREE standard cable service. Popular sports networks on additional TVs with no need for equipment are included in this service. Network On Demand which includes NFL Replay and extended highlights from every single NFL game played that week are available to Cox’s Plus Advanced TV customers. The Sports and Info Pak will be subscribed by these customers.

In a release, Leone added, “With HD programming at no additional charge, free additional outlets and tons of free On DEMAND programming – including NFL Network On Demand, Cox continues to be a great value for entertainment and communications in the Orange County, Palos Verdes and Santa Barbara communities.”
