I think after watching the Bears suck the past couple years and looking like 2013 will be a rebuilding I think I'll save my $'s this year and not renew.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I will not be buying it this year. With all the games that will be on regular TV no need to get this. Price per game compared to NHL MLB and also NBA ticket it is way to much.

It's not a matter of number of games for me, it's a matter of being able to watch the games I want on Sundays. I live in MO and without ST I'd be stuck with the Chiefs and Rams every week.

I'll probably save my money this year unless I can get a huge discount.

I don't really have a "must see" team, so every year I run the same numbers.

256 total regular season games.

17 weekends of games on NFL Network, CBS, FOX, NBC, and ESPN, plus bonus games like Thanksgiving and ESPN's opening night double header ... That comes to over 100 games or 40% of the season available without ST.

So, ST turns out to be about $2.00 per game...
$9.00 ( $300 / 34 ) per Sunday 3 hour "window".

And then...........I buy it anyway and watch Red Zone Channel every week for 6 hours!

I got NFL ST for free last year because I did a Movers Connection (and yes I timed my move specifically for that :lol:) and I think I may have watched 2 or 3 out of market games the entire season....I see my 49ers every week without fail and have gotten RZC for free the previous 2 seasons, so that will be my plan of attack this season, get RZC for free or look at other options to get either RZC or NFL RedZone :D

I will get Sunday Ticket again. Dont know if I will go for the MAX this year. I hardly used the online portion last year. I get alot of games without it by having 4 different CBS and 3 different FOX channels but still seem to not get the Broncos games that frequently. I cant miss Manning's games and I like being able to watch any game I want. I watched every Lions game last year and really enjoyed seeing Calvin tear it up. Sunday Ticket is a must for me.

Same with me, without the ST i'd see very little Patriots games, as I live in WV. It's mainly Steeler's or Bengal's here.

I got it free last year as I was a new sub in September and I'll be getting it. I'm a Colts fan in Michigan. Without ST I would have seen maybe 4 games last year. Plus I can watch games on Sundays when I'm at work with our PS3. Winner winner chicken dinner.

I basically got Max for free last year with the NFL Points Visa card offer. Will do that again if possible, otherwise may just drop it.

A csr told me it was the same as last year's price....at 199 im in but barely...225 will take some thought....I will probably do it, but that's probably the most I am willing to pay for it and I will need to think about it.

It'll be interesting to see whether Directv is willing to wheel and deal with customers on the pricing as they have done in the past. With the end of saying "cancel my service" getting you to retention, I wonder if front line CSRs will have much that they can offer those of us who call up?

As for Max vs. the base package, that's gonna be a tough call this year. I've always purchased Max so my daughter could catch Steelers games on her computer at college. But she'll be going to school next year in the UK, so it won't help her. On the other hand, I do enjoy Red Zone Channel!

It was definitely 199 for regular. I think it was another Benjamin for max.
