I took the "Tour" in 2010 at a Com-1000 instructional course.
It was VERY impressive.

Shows some of the capital investment necessary to bring us satellite tv.

However, I'm surprised that DTV would allow any photos at all of the inside of their facility.

I think most of the "proprietary" stuff is software. The outside stuff is clearly visible on Google Map. The computer banks are pretty generic, it's how they all work together that's the secret.

Agree, Like I said there far less games on NFL Sunday Ticket now, then there ever has been. Thats going to mean something to Directv and its customers .

Directv isn't going to see the value is spending Billion on something thats quite frankly, NOT really exclusive IMO.

I've had Dish and Cable, both had Red Zone.
Plus the now 13 games on NFL network.
NBC has 18 with Thanksgiving Night.
ESPN has 17 with their 2 monday night games week one. And Saturday Night game.
And 2 Thanksgiving day games.

3 local games every sunday for 17 weeks


You don't need ST to see any of these.

101 games you don't need Sunday Ticket for.:eek2:

Thats almost a Quarter of the season that everyone without ST can watch out of market games. Add red zone channels, and they can catch their teams mainly important plays.


Without it alot of us would not get to see hardly any of our favorite teams.

I agree. It seems like the focus is going to Sunday Ticket when the article seems to be about a broadcast center.


I find this kind of ironic.

A couple of months ago, the exact opposite happened. There was a thread about Sunday Ticket that had turned its focus to the Solid Signal DirecTV Broadcast Center Tour, albeit momentarily.
