NFL Sunday Ticket is definitely the best ~$220 bucks I spend each year, as an out-of-state Packer fan.


And the NFL gamepass ($275 in Germany, cheaper or for free in other european countries) is definitely even better [aiee] No blackouts, every game from every team live, as live and in the shortened version with only the plays (about 30 minutes for a game), the Redzone Channel every Sunday, NFL Network 24/7 ... It ain't get any better than that. Thanks to the NFL for thinking across the border.

thanks Post received 1 applause.

Meanwhile... I am stuck with comcast.

They used to have team-specific packages. Now I just need to hope the Seahawks play at a diff time.

It's gotta really suck to live in Northwestern Wisconsin and get stuck with the Vilequeens every week. As a kid, had grandparents that lived in Barron, back before cable the only stations they could get in clear were from the Cities. Reception from Eau Claire wasn't the best. As of 1993 my aunt in Turtle Lake still didn't have access to cable on Horseshoe lake. No idea how it is now.

Yup. And add that onto a 5 tuner HD DVR, and one only misses any football if they want to. It's not the cheapest thing in the world, but well worth the ~$20/month, when spread about an entire year.

That is what frustrates me about the package. They should replay the games all week long or have them in que and let you watch them on demand. Why be so stingy about it? You may want to watch more than one game and don't have a dvr. They put out these games with an eye dropper and are afraid that you may get more than your are paying them for the service.

I can agree, but since all the games are broadcast live, it is what it is. I'm sure they want everyone to purchase DVR's too. Although there is the NFL Game Rewind for all the games that shows the game in about 30 minutes. I don't really like that, however. NFL Network also replays a couple games each week, too. Otherwise, I suppose one could watch the Red Zone channels offered through Direct TV and the NFL Network. A lot of people really seem to like those, but I don't care for them much. I'd rather just flip between the games I want to watch, not just see all the big plays at their discretion.

yep. It is measured out in teeny tiny increments. Heaven forbid they give fans total and unfettered access to the games as much as they want as often as they want. What would happen if they did THAT?? The NFL might lose a little of their tightfisted iron grip control they now have. People could actually think and chose for themselves.

So that's even more heaven on earth to have the option of the gamepass. =d> It offers you all games in the 2h version (without commercials) and 30m version (only plays) whenever you want after the games. I watch the Packers game live, rest of the Sunday Redzone Channel and the big failures of Vikings and Bears whenever I want, either in the short or extended version [grin1]

Yeah, DirectTV has several other options that even I choose not to purchase. They have their own red zone channel. I'm not sure why I would need that, considering 1.) I don't even like RedZone Channels, and 2.) NFL Network has a Red Zone channel themselves. They also offer the ability to watch games on the go via the internet, cell phone, tablet, etc. That's a pretty cool feature, but I just don't really need it. If I can't watch the game on Sunday, it means I'm traveling and won't have time to watch the game anyway, even if I could watch it on my phone, etc. I'll just record the games I want to watch and view them once I return. And the ability to record 5 games at once is plenty to for me, as there is usually not many more games on than that anyway for the first set of games at 1:00 pm estn, and definitely not for the 2nd set at 4 pm estn. The ability to get all the games live is fine for me paired with a DVR. I must admit though, that it's nice they dropped the price. The original price of around $350 dollars was too much. A little over $200 for the base package is reasonable imo, all things considered.

With that being said, I must say I'm really enjoying the shift in my game days Sundays now that I've moved from the east coast to the west coast. It's nice to have the games come on at 10 am and be completed before 9 pm on Sundays (vs. starting at 1 pm and not ending until around midnight on the east coast). The west coast football schedule is the way to go, imo. I don't miss those late football nights, at all.

I guess that's a question of personality. As a "late guy" 10 am would be a real shocker for me to watch the games. 7pm to 2am for all the NFL noon/afternoon games works perfect for me, that's my common time to go to bed. And if the Packers play one of the night games -> day off the next day.

As a Packers fan you're maybe OK at 10 am in the morning in CA, but figure out how Browns fans there feel taking shots all morning to somehow survive the game [grin1]

uffda udfa (3h) : It's just fine.
musccy (3h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (3h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (4h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (5h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (5h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (5h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (9h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (9h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (10h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (10h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (12h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (12h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (12h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (12h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (12h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (13h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (14h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (14h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (14h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (14h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (15h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (15h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
