When Google Fiber first offered the NFL RedZone channel last season it was $10 per month by itself, but this year it has a different deal. The new "Sports Plus" pack will vary slightly in different areas, but in Kansas City it delivers RedZone plus 11 other channels (including GolTV, MLB Network Strike Zone, Pac-12 Networks, Longhorn Channel and more.) Some of the channels were previously included in the standard channel lineup, but now they're being offloaded into this segment. Current subscribers will need to call in to add the bundle, while new signups can pick it out on the website. So far it doesn't appear Google is shifting things to the a la carte model, but if you're just looking to see more sportsball the add-on may be necessary.
