well thanks for all the info, we called direct tv last night and this sunday ticket thing is way too much money, they want another $80.00 or so once their "introductory" offer expires, they give you 4 months free basically but my wife says that that doesnt even take her into the playoffs so and thats $80.00 a month on top of the other $99.00 or so for the other channels and programming, do people really pay $200.00 a month just for watching tv?
later this week my wife will see what pricing dish has to offer, one nice thing about dish is that you can use one box for two displays
Here's the deal, funlvr-for $69.99 a month for four months, you get the NFL Sunday Ticket, and D* throws in it's most expensive package, Totla Choice Premier, for free. Once the four months are up, you can keep the TCPremium at $99.99 a month or switch to any other package D* offers, from Total Choice Family at $29.99 on up to Total Choice Plus at $49.99/month. You can also add up to five different premium packages, with the first on at $12 a month and the rest dropping in price as you add them.
As far as your wife's concern that NFL ST doesn't get her through the playoffs-she's right, but that's only because all the playoff games are available on the national networks to everyone, so ther's no "out of market" games to sell via NFL ST.
As for the two room setup E* offers with some of its receivers, consider this-the second room has to suffer with a crappy UHF signal. If you like good PQ, you won't get it there!
