NFL Redzone for first time this year, was live 4 times in August to cover the evenings pre-season action. Aug 11, 18, 25, and Sept 1. I subscribed to Redzone with Shaw around mid August. I can see in the guide last night (Sept 1) that the Preseason Live action was in the guide, but it said I was "unsubscribed". I did a chat and was told that Shaw wasn't making the channel active for subscribers until today (Sept 2) essentially choosing to NOT provide the 4 preseason special broadcasts.
Just curious as to why Shaw chose to not allow access to 4 Preseason nights that were live on the channel? I assume they just weren't prepared or educated on the fact that these events were taking place, since normally Redzone doesn't start any programming until week 1 of the season?
I'm not that upset, but just want to know the rationale for this?
