NFL Sunday Ticket DirecTV

ANTILLON82 : 8/1/2019 4:56 pm
I guess it's time to start with the negotiation process.......has anybody tried?
I can’t this year  
superspynyg : 8/1/2019 4:58 pm : link
We added a 4K box to the new basement so we are in a contract.

Sucks!
No

And I'm cancelling dt and moving on to dish. We haven't had a local NBC or ABC channel for weeks now with no end in sight to the negotiations. Hate to do it, but they turned to shit after att bought them.

Is that block national or only in some regions? I don't want TV at all, I only have DTV because of Sunday Ticket, sounds like an interesting argument to bloff them and ask for free sunday ticket
I do have a question  
Essex : 8/1/2019 5:11 pm : link
I live in the city and get Giant game so there is no issue with me needing directv. But, Directv lets people in NYC purchase Sunday Ticket via streaming and I have never done it. I am thinking of doing it because I am sick of watching the Jets when the Giants are not on and I would rather watch full games than the red zone. Is the Max package better than the regular one. Is it worth the money?
Thanks.

It's regional but many of the markets are affected. This is the Rochester locals but some in California have been blacked out for even longer.

You do realize that Dish does and will have disputes with the networks. You can’t escape it. Unless you cut the cord.

I got the deal in June. But apparently I only got $15 off. Hour and 20 minutes later they gave me a one time credit of $199 but I still need to pay a $35 fee for 6 months. But whatever it’s technically free.

The Jets game may fall into the blackout rule. I know when I lived in the Philadelphia market the DirecTV Sunday Ticket could not show the Giants game until the Eagles game ended when they overlapped. I dropped Sunday Ticket due to those blackouts.

NFL to have Sunday ticket exclusive to direct tv for this long.
It's getting harder  
ArizonaBlue : 8/1/2019 6:37 pm : link
I called last week and got $100 off the max package for the season. I used to get it for 50%. This will be my last year with DTV as the ticket is the main reason I have it
I'm going to get it as a standalone so I'll probably pay full price  
oghwga : 8/1/2019 6:45 pm : link
Cheaper than going to the bar. We have at and t here and no abc or cw. Dumping for free trials of huluplus, then youtubetv, then PSvue and we'll see which is best

The NFL has a buy out clause with Directv  
Chip : 8/1/2019 7:16 pm : link
after the season. Sounds like the NFL will opt out of the Directv deal and try to reach a broader audience everyone without Directv.

The League may renegotiate AT&T into offering a streaming package to everyone after that season. AT&T/DirecTV is heading in that direction anyway. In the next 5 years, the satellite service will be dead. It'll be a streaming service.
Went to watch...

The hall of fame game, and remembered that our local channels are blocked!! 🤬 would love to cut the cord, but I live in the Philly market and would miss most Giants games, plus, our WiFi is very unreliable!!

My wife did call and ask about a discount.on the ticket, and they said mid August they would have the promo offers for the ticket
The Philly market is NBC  
Mendenhall64 : 8/1/2019 8:44 pm : link
The game is on DirecTV. Channel 10.
Is there any other way yet to get NFL Sunday Ticket?

After wasting 30 minutes trying to negotiate with an outsourcer on another continent who kept telling me I had to wait until August, I got transferred to a "Customer Loyalty Agent, who knocked $25 off my general bill for a year and dropped the $395 fee for Sunday Ticket down to $230. I agree, as will even long time Directv employees that ATT has made a mess of Directv. The outsourcers are as dumb as a box of rocks and can't solve any technical problems. As for streaming NFL games on Directv, I think it comes with the package, as I was able to get it on my laptop while vacationing in Montana. Been a subscriber since 1997.
You can easily watch every single Giants game

NFL needs to do what MLB  
section125 : 8/2/2019 6:57 am : link
did with MLB Extra Innings. I get all Yankees games except when on National Broadcast for $91 - has gone up $2 each of the last 2 years. I can get all games for $120 or $160 - can't remember what it is.

NFL needs to dump AT&T/DirectTV and do it themselves.

And yes I have found some good streaming sites - a bit of a PIA to get going and avoiding redirects, but once hooked up coverage is as good as TV. (I used Bilasports last year)

It's been the opposite for me that you guys are saying  
SicilianGMEN : 8/2/2019 8:58 am : link
every year I get better and better deals...This year...first guy I talked to on the phone gave me $80 off for 12 months (I still have to pay the $60 for 6 months though) so overall a savings of $600 even after getting ST for free

If you have been paying attention to what Reddit is doing is is only a matter of time before they shut those pirate subs down.

Canceled it before the trial period ended. No NFL Network. Tried Sling too, but canceled it. Using Playstation Vue now and pretty happy.

yeah not having NFL Network sucks but I assume they'll one day have it. I can just use Reddit for a stream of the NFLN if I want to.

I used to use the Reddit MMA streams for UFC events. All it took was for ESPN to take some action and that subreddit plus another one that was the same with a different name got completely shut down. Only a matter of time before the NFL does the same.

Many of those streams are available directly from websites without ever going to Reddit. Reddit is just a handy place to get a bunch of links together.
UPDATE  
ANTILLON82 : 8/7/2019 4:09 pm : link
I just contacted DIRECTV (AT&T) customer service and they allowed me to cancel without a sigle dollar in discounts or Sunday Ticket, I scheduled the disconection by the end of this month. has anybody experienced something different.
NFL has until the end of August to opt of out the Direct TV  
jlukes : 8/7/2019 4:12 pm : link
Sunday Ticket deal. IF they do so, the NFL would be able to shop Sunday Ticket around to other outlets for the 2020 season
actually nevermind, the deadline was July  
jlukes : 8/7/2019 4:14 pm : link
Current deal expires at end of 2021 season. Damn

It's an hispanic call center, the guys were so nice to me since I'm from Mexico too, they explained me that I needed to cut the service in order to receive the benefits, the guy asked me to call him one day after the service is down in order to receive discounts, 200 USD free giftcard, and sunday ticket, I Will try again in a couple of weeks when my service is down.
