I wanted to announce that SB Nation and its NFL blogs, including Baltimore Beatdown, now has a sponsor for the season. We were approached by Comcast, who is looking to get the word out about Comcast Redzone and they knew the best way to reach hardcore NFL fans was through SB Nation blogs. We’re proud to have them as a sponsor and it shows just how much this blog has grown and the kind of community we have here.
We won’t be bombarding you with marketing messages, but we’ll remind you every once in a while about some of the great sports features available from Comcast, like Redzone. For a little cash a month, you get the Redzone Channel which shows all the redzone action on NFL Sunday as its happening.
This weekend on Sunday, Oct. 4th, they’ll provide Redzone for free on Comcast from 1-4 PM.
Plus, they got stuff like On Demand content from the NFL Network including game recaps of every game, every week; draft profiles, player profiles, etc.
So just wanted to say thanks to Comcast for sponsoring the blog and let you guys know about some of the stuff they have for NFL fans.
