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

Go for it. In the mean time...many millions of us enjoy it all season long (and have been since it came out).

Why does everyone think Directv will lose ST? DirectTV is considering just not making an exclusive deal. Which is fine by me. Sent from my PantechP8010 using DBSTalk mobile app

 

I guess I could have been clearer and should have added that I don't seriously think DirecTV and the NFL will part company.  Anything is possible I suppose but I think the probability of another provider outbidding DirecTV for exclusive rights is highly unlikely.  I've thought for a long time that if DirecTV were to lose its claim to exclusive Sunday Ticket it would be because the NFL might decide to go the route of say a service like HBO or Showtime and market to all cable and satellite providers.  I won't even guess at the math/accounting as to what it would take to make that as lucrative or more profitable than the present single provider contract.

That's your reasoning, not anyone elses,

Most people love NFL but don't feel they need to spend extra on something that not very important.

That's the reasoning!

Most people don't have a choice for that.

If they could go to Vegas , or subscribe to NFL ST I think we all know what would be picked.

People chose not to subscribe to Directv and 90% of the ones that do, don't subscribe to NFL ST.

Accept the facts!

Yeah, you're right. The NFL should turn down a billion dollars in revenue because "most people" don't want the programming.

Are you going to tell a business owner "most people will never set foot in your establishment - close up shop"? 90% of the people who pass your establishment will never come in ... your business is a failure. You're making a billion a year but you are a failure.

The service is there for the people who want it - and a lot of people want it and are willing to pay.

Nine out of ten of the top rated programs of 2013 were football, and the top four were essentially the same program. The top rated cable program? Sunday Night Football. The only pay-tv (non-broadcast) program to break the top 10? Monday Night Football. It's football's world, we just live in it.

We aren't talking about the NFL. The NFL will make a ton of money regardless of what directv does with their deal.

It's very big with DirecTV, too, with the commercial accounts alone. It's damn near impossible to a Hooters, Buffalo Wild Wings or casino without it.

Now that's plain funny.

 

Reality Check:

 

Almost everyone knows TV broadcast rights make up most of the NFL's revenue. DirecTV pays roughly $1 Billion (that's Billion with a "B") each season for the rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket package. Very few others have the ability to pony up that kind of money for a single optional service and deliver it so that they don't lose money themselves. The operational startup and maintenance costs alone to support NFL ST delivery to DirecTV customers adds millions more in cost, not revenue.

 

Perhaps if some people knew the facts instead of anecdotal fodder...they could understand the reality of this topic.

What Facts.? That Directv well inflated the NFL head with an estimated value that's way above what most people or company care to pay for. Congratulations Directv, now you can pay 4 billion for it, I hope you can break even this time with less then 3 million subscribers. Sent from my PantechP8010 using DBSTalk mobile app

Let me ask you guys a Question,
If Directv can pay 4 Billion dollars for NFL ST , that's a 400% increase.

Why is it they can't afford to give its customer a break on these price increases, when the networks only want a fraction of what Directv want to offer the NFL?

Maybe they could invest that 4 Billion into what 18 million of its subscribers want.

Put my mind at ease and we'll call it a day.

Directv has held this ST offer in front of its customers for Years, and guess what , Most customers don't care anything about it.
That's a FACT!
