I was told the opposite that they'd be "willing to work" with loyal customers.

Directv should stop selling it to individuals & just sell it to bars, clubs etc.
At least then we wouldnt have to hear the bitch & moan fest about the $$ every year.

Instead, we'd hear a bitch and moan fest about how people would be willing to pay whatever DirecTV wanted, but DirecTV won't let them have it. The bitching and moaning won't stop, if you don't want to hear it, don't read the threads.

It still wouldnt be complaining about the price....it would be more like the complaining about not getting versus hd.

Also you wouldnt get the "ST is the only reason i kept directv" reasons anymore.

Also directv would then offer the NFLN redzone channel.

The pros (pun) still outweight the cons.

Approx 2 million NFL ST subs....almost 19 million D* subs...

So even if the 2 million left, D* still would have about 17 million subs...still more than E*.

I'm willing to bet that at least 80% of the people that bitch and moan about the price will still end up getting it. Just the way it is, and D* knows it!

Yeah, we'll get it with one of the annual deals they offer, making the price more reasonable.

I cancelled my auto-renew after the season, it's just too expensive and I get to see 6-8 games of my team anyways. I'm going with the (audio) NFL Field pass for $35. I know it's not the same but it's 10% of the cost.
