Surprise! Ok, not so much,
I think the NFL got itself into a bit of a situation with Redzone. No commercials is awesome. Non-stop football for 7 hours? Awesome again.. I don't think I've watched a full game on a Sunday straight through that wasn't a Seahawks game in a couple seasons now. I wonder if Redzone is actually taking considerable viewership away from games and the games commercials. If so this move is great for them.
Jacking up the price will either raise more revenue or piss off people bad enough to cancel service and just... watch the various network games with all the commercials. Win-win.
But to me they are all just greedy bastards.
