Google announced today that in addition to carrying NFL Network, Google Fiber will also carry NFL Redzone. In a post on the Google Fiber blog, senior product manager Larry Yang writes:
You’re probably already excited that the Google Fiber TV service includes NFL Network. We’re very excited to be working with the NFL Network to bring the best of the NFL—including Thursday Night Football—to everyone in Kansas City.
We’re also pleased to announce pricing for an additional channel called NFL RedZone. NFL RedZone gives fans live look-ins and highlights every Sunday afternoon during the season, switching to a game when a team is in the red zone.
The NFL RedZone package costs $40 for the season, and can be paid in increments of $10 per month for four months. Users can wait and get it later in the season if they wish, and still pay for just the remaining months.
According to Yang, these are just the first of many sports offerings to come from Google Fiber.
While Google Fiber may only be available in Kansas City, rumor has it than it will be expanding, though Google tells us on the record, “We have no plans for expansion right now.”
The NFL offerings certainly can’t hurt the chances for success of Google’s ambitious service provider endeavor.
