So would any other provider.

 

It can't be streaming, that simply won't work on the scale of Sunday Ticket. If it is cable then it only works for those bars that are located where that cable company or companies are offer service. Dish is a possibility, though as I understand it, Dish's technology isn't really well designed for setups with large numbers of receivers.

As I said in the other thread about this, I expect dtv to get it again and for them to possibly sell it as a ott streaming solution to people without DIRECTV at a somewhat high rate to protect their own investment.

Dish has limtted room maybe with they kill all PPV HD (other then 1-2 for events if needed) and maybe even kill RSN HD for parts of sunday.

 

Cable comast does not have SDV so =

no big ten alt HD

no goal line HD

no game 3-9 HD

no team 2-9 HD

Premier League Extra Time has a VOD for live tv that fails

 

and limmted HBO, SHOW, MAX, starts HD.

 

even some SDV systems may have a hardtime doing 8-15 feeds + other local needs / others sports on some nodes.

 

Maybe have NFL ticket on MPEG 4 but good luck haveing the system set to flag subs as NEED MPEG 4 hardware and makeing so that the installers have the boxes on the truck for that as well saved ones if some with NFL ticket goes down.

 

 

Shaw cable has NFL ticket on MPEG  4 as well as other sports and new HD channels but you can own the box there and I think they have stop giveing out old MPEG 2 HD boxes as well.

 

rogers has SDV and it seems to work?? for there super sports pack.

Will DirecTV keep its Sunday Ticket football package or punt?

"With all the new platforms coming," Bedol said, "by the time the next Sunday Ticket deal comes up, it will be obsolete."

 

Well the past few years for Comcast has seen them not do much on the cable tv side other then dropping HD channels and still keeping very old boxes alive.

 

Other cable system have at least done a lot more on MPEG 4 and SDV.

 

Internet will need to drop caps and have higher speeds.

 

Now how meany bars will pay the cost of say 30 Mbps - 50 Mbps business internet + an router that can do 8+ HD steams? + 8+ internet tv boxes (that may not get local sports, espn , local channels and more)

 

maybe an hdmi to component box of each one lots of bars have component matrix switches and cabling. They may also need a bigger matrix switches to add boxes that just do NFL ST. Also will they be as easy to run, install , setup as say an directv / cable box is?

I hope DirecTV drops the Ticket personally. Enough with D* super fans feeling special because their programming provider of choice has something the others do not. Let Comcast have at it and be done with it. Go Xfinity! :)

Its obvious ST is not the country's first choice in TV entertainment.

 

If it was for one all 20 million Directv customers  would subscribe , not just 10%, and only about 1 percent of the countrys total TV viewers.

A million or two paying subscribers is not shabby.

In a Country where there are about 75 million plus tv subscribers its fairly weak. Again if ST was that important to customers they would be a lot closer to 20 million and not just 3m at best.
People would be lined up getting directv, and that's never been the case. Least amount of content for the most amount of money, tends to steer people clear of it.

Since I'm guessing most people live in their team's market, most subscribers don't " need" ST. ST is for out of market fans, hardcore football junkies and fantasy geeks .

Being in the military, ST is perfect for me. Colts fan living in Lions territory. I hope DirecTV keeps it. I don't see how any cable provider could offer the same. Sent from the jaws of my Hammerhead!

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have been a loyal Seahawks fan since their first game.  It took a divorce :eek2: and remarriage but in 1999, while living in Northern Virginia, I finally got DirecTV and quickly realized I could get my full dose of Seahawks games if I signed up for Sunday Ticket.  Since then I've moved to San Antonio and stayed with DirecTV still driven somewhat by their exclusive Sunday Ticket offering.  I've never really considered what I might do if DirecTV lost Sunday Ticket. I think after all these years with DirecTV I'd probably stay put with them as my primary TV source though that decision might be influenced by where Sunday Ticket landed.  Count me amount those displaced fans with little to no other choice than Sunday Ticket to continue to follow their team.

Why does everyone think Directv will lose ST? DirectTV is considering just not making an exclusive deal. Which is fine by me.

Considering Satelliteracer knows DIRECTLY what is involved...I'll go with his assessment instead.

I'll stick with the other 75 Million Americans whom do without NFL ST, or its outrageous price tag.

By design, I mean the NFL has a tough balancing act they have to play with their broadcaster rights.  The NFL set this up, by design, to be the way it is to address the networks and out of market components.  You also had technology constraints in which most of those first 20 years there were only two providers in this country that could even pull this off. 

 

My two cents
