Sunday Ticket going up to $395 for 2018

SicilianGMEN : 2/20/2018 10:14 am
Saw a tweet on this...it will be $395 including redzone channel. So the ratings drop but the NFL is charging even more for this in 2018?...huh....
Hopefully less people will pay for it

The NFL does not equal DirecTV

DirecTV increased the price.

I just cancelled the auto renewal on my sunday ticket.

They just opened a Wild wings café down the street. I will go there. I can walk home!!
What was  
Doomster : 2/20/2018 10:46 am : link
the old price?
The price is not changing that much  
Oldschoolgiant : 2/20/2018 10:49 am : link
395.94 is for the Red Zone Channel and Fantasy Channel also. So the price is really changing from $281.94 to $293.94. Up $11 bucks!

According to tvanswerman.com, the basic Sunday Ticket package price is increasing from $281.94 in 2017 to $293.94 for games this fall. Add in a package that includes the Red Zone channel and the Fantasy channel, and the cost will be $395.94.
It's a 4.2% raise.  
GiantFilthy : 2/20/2018 10:49 am : link
This after the 9+% raise coming into 2017 season.
I thought it was too  
NDMedics : 2/20/2018 10:51 am : link
expensive last season, I won't pay $400 for it this year. I just don't watch enough football anymore to justify it. 10 years ago I would be glued to the TV all Sunday long. Today I just watch the Giants and maybe one other game all week. Many of my friends feel that same.

lol, I honestly can't remember the last time I paid for it. One of these years I'll have to and I'll still be way ahead.
Bitching over $11 buck increase.

I see this crap every year. These are the same guys who sit in the drive up waiting to buy their Starbucks lotti-tottie bullshitting on their expensive I-phones sitting in their 10 mile per gallon suburbans. Its all a matter of priorities.
They lowered it once like 6 years ago  
Banks : 2/20/2018 11:10 am : link
And steadily gone every year. I pay for the max package so my dad can use the internet version. It's not cheap, but legally what alternative is there. A bar will cost me the same or more and without the comfort. Plus I live outside of Philly... Here's one thing that they should be killed for. Two years ago they made the shortcuts available online only. I pay $400 and you force me to watch the games on a small screen when it was always available on the channel after midnight

I used to wait every year until you posted your results online, sometimes it seemed like they paid you for the privilege of allowing you to watch the Sunday Ticket.

Now, I coach my youngest's hockey team and they travel practically every single Sunday or have home games that often coincide with football, so I got rid of DirecTV completely and just have FiOS and the red zone channel. I miss it a little, but just have other priorities right now.

I have no doubt you will wind up with a deal again this fall. Though I understand from some on here with AT&T becoming more pervasive in DTV it's getting harder to negotiate.
I would never question The finances  
joeinpa : 2/20/2018 11:13 am : link
Of someone else. But $395 for every Giants games and all the other games is pretty good value, especially when you consider what it takes to attend a game.

I d pay much more.
I'm out  
Gman11 : 2/20/2018 11:28 am : link
I'll find other ways to watch the Giants. And, for other games...I don't really care.
FWIW..  
froggerjoe : 2/20/2018 11:31 am : link
For what its worth...I had a son that was a freshman in college last year.

DirecTV offers students the Sunday Ticket for $99. I used his college email address to sign up for the service.

THAT IS STEALING.
Yeah, i think I'll cancel  
Brown Recluse : 2/20/2018 11:46 am : link
and just stream the games I can't see locally.

Ridiculous.
red zone is all you really need.

I think I've paid for it once in almost 20yrs now  
jimmypage : 2/20/2018 12:04 pm : link
of having it. If they make me pay I'll just cancel my service which I've been willing to do for a long time now. They just haven't let you go over this. I could just pay for a yr or two to watch Eli go out since I'm way ahead of the game.

I can't do Redzone. I want to see the whole game, not just the scoring plays.
$10/month for RedZone with Charter.  
Knineteen : 2/20/2018 12:11 pm : link
And you can drop the package during the off-season.

NFL has too many unrestricted deals.

I pay for DirectTvNow but can't watch any games on my phone because Verizon has unrestricted access to mobile game feeds.

With all due respect, this is how you get viewers to pirate your content.

Or...or.........or, every Giants game I get for free in HD via an OTA antenna.
Because, remember, 3 major BROADCAST networks have rights to air games. I'm not sure how $400/year is considered a good price when games are free over the air.

Not everyone is in market. My OTA games are Ravens and Redskins

The NFL has some horrible partners when it comes to internet access in this day in age.

Crazy.

Just sell an app and charge $15/mo like Netflix to everyone.
I have it free fror the last 5 years  
Stan in LA : 2/20/2018 2:42 pm : link
And expect it free again this season.
Finding HD streams is pretty easy  
OdellBeckhamJr : 2/20/2018 3:06 pm : link
I also plug in the link on SodaPlayer and I'm able to cast that to my Chromecast. Works flawlessly. I'll save that $400 for beer and snacks

But the original justification for shelling out $400 for Sunday Tickey was due to the cost of attending a game. Which really isn't a good justification.

I was, admittedly, being ridiculous on the other end of the spectrum.
I cancelled Directv completely  
DavidinBMNY : 2/20/2018 7:54 pm : link
I just watch the game out now. I buy a beer or 2 and I'm not stuck with some crazy contract.
