NFL Sunday Ticket is such a waste. Well, no, rather, it is just drastically over priced. You can sometimes get in on a good deal and not have to pay extra for it.

That's easy to say for people who live where the local stations carry the Packers game about 98% of the time.

Sunday Ticket thrives because so many nowadays move away from the area of the team they love.

What do you pay for it there anyway? Here it's free with Direct TV, and Direct TV ain't an awful lot more than cable - less if you have some premium channels. And if you don't mind some bad credit hahaha, just pay during the season, then tell Direct TV "F you very much".

I spent about a year an half in Colorado, so I was forced to (by choice of course) to get DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket. My monthly bill exceeded $120 per month during the six months of the package then dropped to I think $70, maybe $60. Mind you, my daughter and I watch little TV and the shows we do catch, are on local channels.

We're back in Wisconsin (since early 2012) and do not have any cable or satellite service. We do have Netflix and occasionally hit up Redbox.

My experience with DirecTV was awful. Worst customer service experiences of my life. Although I don't get to see entire Packer games most of the time, I fid NFL Red Zone flips channels quite nicely for me so I catch a lot of what's going on.

As I understand it, the exclusive deal for Sunday Ticket that DirecTV may go away...that is just a rumor, but if it does I would not at all be surprised if the NFL Network sets up a pay per view or other system which would allow access to out of market games.

I laid out a reasonable streaming game by game plan for the NFL on the site year or so ago. They could make some serious bank if they cut out the middle man.

From May this year
Quote:
DirecTV Group has a big call to make on NFL Sunday Ticket, its popular programming package. About 2 million of the satellite TV broadcaster's subscribers, 10% of its customers, pay to get NFL Sunday Ticket. If DirecTV (DTV) wants to renew its exclusive deal to broadcast National Football League games on Sundays, it'll have to pay more than the $1 billion it now antes up each year, analysts say. ...


And PFT chimes in too...
