Sure they make money, cause when they don't they just raise the Price.
The reason they should add it is they could have had at least one more subscriber!
Seriously they should add it as either part of HDExtra or standalone mini premium because many want it. It could help in gaining new subs and retaining old ones.
Assuming your numbers are correct, that 10 million subs is pretty darned good for a product that has 3 HD channels and on SD channel and is as new to the game as they are. I seriously doubt that TMC or Encore would have that many subs if they had to stand on their own, yet they are the nearest like comparison that could be made.
You can't seriously compare a newbie on the block to the very old and experienced HBO/Showtime with a straight face!
So how are they "passing along the cost to 19 million subs" if the ones subscribing to NFLST are covering that nut?
It is $18 on most provider and will be on D* too real soon now!
Let me see proof! I want to see the sunday Ticket bills from the last 5 years.
Cause I've already seen and heard otherwise.
Absolutely! I've always figured that the commercial accounts cover all of the cost of NFLST with some profit even from them, and every residential subscriber is just gravy on top!
It all comes down to $$$. Sure they could gain a few extra subs but at what cost? Programming & retrans fees are now around 40% of D*'s monthly operating cost.
So with the Viacom deal last summer they have the right to carry Epix, but are probably waiting for the best terms to do so.
Not to mention all the new customers it brings in as well.
Every provider has HBO, and Every Provider in MY area has all in HD.
Thats not an exclusive for Directv so that statement proves nothing
Unless Michael White has lied during financial calls he's said that NFL-ST fees are not subsidized by non ST subs.
I thought I already proved it with math...but here you go:
Fire Code Occupancy 2013 Early-Bird Pricing: 1-Pay
The cost per subscriber that D* has to make for NFLST is $333 ($1 billion divided by 3 million subs). And every Bar & Restaurant price above is way more than that.
I gotta agree with you. I can't think of a single provider that doesn't offer HBO.
Hey whats networks and show do you Like? Cause maybe I don't like them and Tired of paying for them.
I just got hit with a $10 price increase. For what?
You writing down numbers isn't proof. Wheres your links?
Find the NFLST pricing on that page.
Boom, roasted you again...
Lets see a link?
I don't give a crap about your Directv .com link,
I want the list of the number commercial subscribers that Pay, along with the List of Paying subscribers, that proves having NFL ST , MLB EI,NHL CI, NBA, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz Encore doesn't cost 19 million customers any money over what they would pay if they were not offered.
Cause all of you seem to claim only Epix passes on its cost to all the customers.
Thats exact claims 3-4 people are Trying to say!
Sorry, don't have one, just remember hearing him say it during a call.
Guess I could go the other way, do you have a link from DIRECTV that shows that subs are paying for sports subscription packages that they don't subscribe to?
I responded to the wrong post. It was intended as a reply regarding Sunday Ticket.
