Bills game isn't completely blacked out today

By Alan Pergament

As anyone with the NFL RedZone knows, the Buffalo Bills game with the Miami Dolphins at 1 p.m. today won't be completely blacked out.

The channel, which is part of Time Warner Cable's Sports Pass, is produced by the NFL Network and switches to every Sunday game when teams get inside the 20-yard line.

So if quarterback Thad Lewis drives the Bills inside the Miami 20 or Ryan Tannehill drives the Dolphins inside the Bills 20, RedZone will take you to the game at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The RedZone also carries every touchdown scored today.

There is a catch. To get the Red Zone, you have to pay $8.99 per month for Sports Pass. But that isn't close to what a ticket for the game would be and Sports Pass also includes several other channels, including the NHL Network.

I signed up for it today and was assured by a TWC representative that today's coverage would include the blacked-out Bills games.

The good news is if you don't want to keep the Sports Pass, you can cancel it at any time. In other words, you can watch it today and cancel it Monday if you don't instantly love it. In other words, it might cost you as little as 30 cents for one day.

I am also told the RedZone Channel is available on Verizon's FiOS and DirecTV has long had its own version of the channel.
