Falcons Fans --- Directv


Recommended Posts

Funny you should bring this up. I just got off the phone with DTV about 30 minutes ago cancelling NFL Ticket. This will be my first year without it. It served me well but I found that I was only watching a couple games the last two years, so I'm gonna put that $300 in the bank. Dude offered me discounts to stay on and told me about the inclusion of Superfan, but I don't even want to pay $200 to watch two games.

Nice! I looked at my bill last year and I paid $280 for the Ticket and $100 for Superfan. So its $66 cheaper if it stays $314. They're advertising Sunday Ticket To Go along with it and not Superfan so maybe you're right about it being included this year B)

it even says on Directv website right now... They don't even have NFL Superfan package anymore. It's called Ticket-to-go (for Smartphone and Internet users only)

I'd say it's too early to ask for anything..

The only way to get good deal such as $20 credit for 6 months.. Say that you don't want to renew NFL Sunday Ticket and they would forward you to retention dept. Customer Service guys can't do a **** on Directv.

Not trying to put you on a spot, but help me understand your post. Assuming you're a

STH and attend all home games and all away games are televised on local TV where

you reside, why did you ever agree to subscribe? I've doled out the 280.00 for the

last 4yrs and you bet I watch every game.

Cool!!! Just got direct tv and the girl said I would need to call back next month for superfan! Guess I won't have to do that! Finally I will be able to watch all the Falcons games here in San Diego, instead of being blanketed by the frigging Chargers!!!

GO FALCONS!!!

I pretty much have no choice. Not going to see many falcons games in Utah without it.

Tried finding online streams but never really had any luck with it.

And to answer the NFL.com question, they won't let you buy a streaming video package from them if you are in the U.S. of A. At least that is how it used to be. I used to listen via streaming radio, but hard to appreciate a football game via radio.

can't get DirectTV in the new apartment....so I guess it's back to the Bar for games.

always a good time anyways

I'm with you, I'd kill to get it, but there's no where to put a dish, and my complex has a deal with ComCast. I wish Arlen Specter was successful at trying to kill their exclusivity with DirectTV. I wish they had a pay-per-view or something. I'd pay $20 to watch a game at home. I end up spending $60 on beer and food at the sports bar anyway.

Actually, If you can't Directv then they have "NFL SUNDAY TICKET To-Go 2010". it means you can watch the game on computer or smart phone.

I'm not sure how much they would be charging but something to keep an eyes on.

I called about two months ago. I basically complained about the price, told them all of my friends and local bars had sunday ticket. I also explained that I loved Sunday ticket but it was getting too expensive. So they gave me everything for 7 payments of $24.95. I have also had Sunday Ticket since 2005 so I am sure that helps a little, but you never know what you can get away with. I have heard people calling them and them just lowering the price. I had to call and what I thought was the just threaten to cancel, and that person wouldnt hook me up. 15 minutes later I called back and found the right guy I guess, and explained the entire situation over and that is when I got that price. Anyways, it never hurts to try it. **** the give new people the Sunday ticket with their best package all for $59.99 a month, so why shouldnt they hook up their loyal customers.
