AP
The longstanding agreement that gives DirecTV exclusive access to the Sunday Ticket package that gives NFL fans the ability to watch every game expires after next season. But the two sides have apparently come to terms on a new deal.

Multiple reports on Thursday say the league and the satellite TV provider have agreed to keep Sunday Ticket on DirecTV for years to come.

I see no reason to doubt it will happen again as usual.  To many reasons for both to keep the status quo on this one.

The only way that it makes sense for the NFL to take Sunday Ticket elsewhere is if they open it up to every provider. As an exclusive, nobody but D* and Dish could deliver it nationwide in HD, and I don't think Dish would pay to have an exclusive. My fear is how much the NFL will extort from D* to keep it, given what they extracted from the networks. $1 billion is a lot of beans, but I see it going up from there.

We initially went with DirecTV back in the spring of 1999 because of the horrible cable service in our area.  I don't remember if NFL Sunday Ticket was part of that decision or not but I added it for the next season and I've stuck with it ever since.  As a displaced Seahawks fan, first in the DC area and now in Texas, the only way I could follow my team was to get Sunday Ticket.  If DirecTV were to lose Sunday Ticket to another provider, and I can't see where it would go to other than Dish as none of cable/land line providers have nation-wide/every community coverage, then I'd at least have to reconsider my long-term DirecTV service or at least figure out how to get Sunday Ticket with the new exclusive provider.  If it weren't an exclusive and became more like HBO, Showtime, etc., then I'd probably stick with DirecTV.

No surprise here. Same song 9th verse.

 

I'll repeat for the umpteenth time as long as "Over the Air networks" are involved with broadcasting the NFL there will be zero chance of Google, youtube or any other ISP provider being the Home of Sunday Ticket.

 

 

Throwing their names around in public is nothing more than a skilled ploy from the NFL.

I'd hope there is an internet component to this deal through Google or another provider...

Hopefully, Directv has negotiated as it relates to the almost-weekly blackout issue with 1pm games that are running over into 4:25 games (often the game of the week). This is especially important with the new overtime rules.

I hope they don't strike a deal. Because you know it's not going to be cheaper, and Directv going to be paying more. And for less and less games per year then ever, seems like a rip off to me. Sent from my PantechP8010 using DBSTalk mobile app

If my provider didn't have Sunday Ticket I would switch to a provider that does.

How does not making a deal solve that? You do realize they make money on NFL ST via bars?

If that's not the biggest oxymoron there is .

Provider that makes you happy. HA! that's funny.

And I have to find a new provider because you don't agree with my comment, but I have to agree with yours?

Sorry, I don't drop to my Knees for Directv, If I don't like something, its gets heard.
