Some pretty exciting news for us here at Pats Pulpit! The good folks at Comcast have decided to sponsor this here blog for the rest of the regular season. They've come to PP and many of the other NFL blogs on the network to help them get the word out about their new Red Zone Channel. They obviously know that the best way to get to the best and most hardcore football fans in America is to go through the SBNation family of websites, and this site is no exception. The fact that companies like this are coming to PP and to SBNation in general speaks volumes about how much the site and the community have grown over the course of the past couple of years, not to mention the power you, the members of sites like this, yield.
The concept behind the NFL Red Zone channel is pretty amazing stuff. Whenever a team gets inside the 20-yard line, the channel will switch to that game, which will allow you to see basically every touchdown from every game. If you don't want to shell out the money for the dish and pay for the NFL package, the Red Zone Channel was made for folks like you, particularly if you're outside of Boston's primary market as many of us are.
Here's a few notes from our fine friends at Comcast:
* Comcast's cable lineup, including NFL Network, will offer wall-to-wall draft coverage including a live broadcast of the draft
* NFL Network on Demand on Comcast will complement all the live draft coverage with profiles of the 100 top prospects available leading up to the draft
* Comcast's NFL programming will also include extensive training camp coverage, preseason game broadcasts and full coverage of Hall of Fame weekend
* During the regular season, NFL Network on Demand lets you re-watch every NFL game as soon as 24 hours following it's original airing
* The wildly successful and popular Red Zone will be back on Comcast for a second season
Now, I have pride albeit it very little. I'm not selling out or anything but this is a big deal for our SB Nation NFL Blogs, especially the ones in Comcast areas. I don't plan on any more posts dedicated solely to Comcast, but you will see mention of them every now and again. They are, after all, a big sponsor of ours.
