If you want to watch NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime, it might not be obvious how to do it, but it’s possible. In fact, there are a couple of different ways to do it, and they vary significantly in terms of cost and ease of access.

Just so we’re clear before we get started: You won’t be able to pay for NFL RedZone through Amazon Prime. Rather, these options will allow you to add free channels from which, with the relevant subscription, you’ll be able to stream NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime.

If that’s the case, then why even bother watching NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime? For one thing, there’s a certain convenience to having all of your streaming centralized in one place. If you watch movies on Amazon Prime and enjoy its interface, it makes sense to go this route.

How to watch NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime

There are three free channels you can use to watch NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime

1) FuboTV

Cost: $65.98 per month

FuboTV, a sports-centric live TV streaming service, offers NFL RedZone as part of an add-on package called Sports Plus. It costs $10.99 per month. That’s in addition to Fubo’s basic package, which is $54.99 per month (after a seven-day free trial). FuboTV includes NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, NBA TV, and FX. It’s not your cheapest option, but it’s solid. The only real concern is that FuboTV doesn’t include any ESPN channels. (Here’s a full list of FuboTV channels.)

2) Sling TV

Cost: $30-$45 per month ($10 off first month)

Sling TV is by far the cheapest way to watch NFL RedZone; it’s not even close. If you’re not familiar, Sling TV is a live TV streaming service that offers all of the best channels from a cable package. Sling TV has three basic packages: Sling Orange costs $30 per month and includes a whole batch of ESPN channels, AMC, and Comedy Central. Sling Blue also costs $30 per month, and while it doesn’t have ESPN, it has nearly every other sports channel you could ask for, including NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, NBCSN, TNT, and TBS. Finally, Sling Orange + Blue costs $45 per month, and as you’ve guessed, it combines the two packages into one. (You can see a complete breakdown of Sling TV channels here.) 

To get NFL RedZone, you’ll need either the Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue package, then to add the Sling Blue Sports Extra package, which costs $10 per month and also includes NBA TV, NHL Network, and Pac-12 Network, among other channels. That brings your total monthly cost to either $40 or $55, depending on which package you build onto.

You can download the Sling TV app on a number of different devices—Amazon Fire TVAmazon Fire StickApple TVAndroid TVRokuXbox OneGoogle Chromecast, and iOS and Android devices—or you can simply download the free channel on Amazon Prime and enter your credentials. You’ll be watching NFL RedZone in no time.

3) NFL Sunday Ticket

If you can afford it, NFL Sunday Ticket is the best way to stream NFL games online. It allows you to watch up to eight games at once—except the ones subject to local blackouts—and comes with a ton of other great features.

On its own, NFL Sunday Ticket’s retail cost is $293.94 for the 2019 season. To tack on the DirecTV Red Zone Channel, you’ll have to upgrade to NFL Sunday Ticket Max, which also includes DirecTV Fantasy Zone. And no, you don’t need to DirecTV (the satellite version) to get this deal; there’s an online alternative.

Once you’re signed up, you can watch NFL Sunday Ticket on any number of devices—Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Roku, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Android TV, tablets, and iOS and Android phones—or you can just use your credentials and watch NFL RedZone on Amazon Prime using the official NFL Sunday Ticket channel.

4) NFL
