    Anyone else find it utterly annoying that you cannot use the app anywhere near a football stadium? What was the purpose of blocking this? Anyone figure out a way around it.

    If I am HOME, I watch redzone on my couch. When I'm not home, IE. tailgating at a game, I want to watch it on my phone. Whats the point?

    Really? It can tell when you are near a stadium and it blocks you? If do, that's insane.

    Wow...that sounds ridiculous. I wonder if they tag your location by triangulation and if close to a stadium block your access.

    I have no idea how they'd figure that out. My biggest beef with it is the streaming audio. You can stream audio for all the games which is great. However, you have to stay in the app on that screen for that game to get the audio. Switch to another game and the audio dies. Minimize the app and the audio dies. Go check the current standings and the audio dies. It makes the app nearly useless.

    I haven't had any problems. The only issue is when there are a ton of people using the network. At some points during the day, you cannot get a text or a call to go through either.

    That's actually a far more logical explanation really. Good thinking.
