    one thing to keep in mind is that last year they offered like a 10 month payment program. Jump on it early and then get a deal later on for money back. There are options. Take $300 from your tax money this year to sit aside for Sunday Ticket and pay for it all at once. I have recieved SuperFan free 2 years in a row and plan to get it next year as well. If all I get is SuperFan free next year thats fine to.

    Even with SuperFan added, NFLST still breaks down to less than $25 per week for all 17 weeks of the NFL regular season....I am renewing for next year

    I to just called and much to my suprise they already have the pricing for next season. I was told $314.93 and that it would be broken up into 7 monthly payments making it $44.99 for 7 months. I for one dont want to pay on it for 7 months at that price. I might consider the 10 month plan if they offer it this year or pay it all at once.

    Did that several times in the past. It reaches a point where they really aren't going to cut you a deal anymore. Last year they offered squat - this to a now former premier sub who also used to pick up Game Plan and Extra Innings each year. :nono2:

    Payback is what it is. They just lost about $1200 in revenue from me in 2010.

    Whatever the price count me in as a renewal either with the 7 pay plan or hopefully they'll continue the 10 pay. Then I'll go for the SF 4 pay or whatever it was. I won't be calling for a discount it is what it is.

    first off, i want to say that it is great that some folks get so much enjoyment out of the NFL ST package that they are willing to drop $400+ on it.

    and don't get me wrong, i love football . . . but i quit subscribing to it many moons ago when it was still less than $200. i think the final year i got it, i paid $169 or $189. to be honest, i still wouldn't pay more than that price . . . but everyone has their own thing.

    that being said, i can't help but think there are a ton of people out there that think like i do. and that makes me ask, does D* get a per subscriber fee or can they sell it at whatever price they want? seems to me that the rules of supply and demand would say lowering the price would bring in a ton more customers . . . and i wouldn't be surprised if that lead to more profits.

    i just hope the NFL redzone channel gets on D* soon. now that is something that i am interested in buying, as i would expect it to be very fairly priced.

    Goodby to NFL ST if it is over $300 w/ SuperFan. I have had it since 1997. NO Versus, jacking the price of the Sunday Ticket, I am not under contract anymore and I could do other things with my money instead of giving it to D*. It has come to the breaking point for me and I will walk away. FU

    Wasn't this $150 less than ten years ago? They're inflating the price too fast. I only watch redzone channel now anyway. Might have to switch to dish. Will hold D* over the fire before I do.

    My understanding is that D* pays a set amount each year for the package but its up to them to recoup the cost and make a profit. I to asked that tonight when I called asking about next seasons price. I asked why it was going up $35 next season and was told that the contract is negotiated each year. I said I dont believe that to be true. I said from what I have read D* has a set price locked in for Sunday Ticket. I said if you are raising the price that would lead me to believe that you are losing ST subs. She said that the season that just ended they did lose some. I can sort of see the price increase for that but Im not sure I believe they ST sub loss. They still had a ton of new subs last year. Not sure if some of those were ST subs but I would think so. As many people say they are leaving there are that many more that sign up for it really. With them adding more markets locals to I would think that has to help the chances of new subs for ST as well. Also if in fact in this next year they offer all 210 DMA's locals channels I would think that again the subs would grow again for ST as the offer when the season is about to start is usually really good. This of course is just my opinion.

    It is the law of supply and demand.

    Directv will keep raising the NFLST price until people stop buying it. They will then know what the top price cap of what people will pay.

    Will it be this year? Time will tell.

    I don't mean this with any disrespect, but YOU are the reason they raise the price for ST every year....the displaced fan that HAS to see thier team every week.....they know they have you, and you'll subscribe no matter the cost....I've had ST for 2 years now and last season I watched 2 out of market games, the rest of the time I was watching my Niners or RZC....this season it was only my Niners and RZC. Its going to be really interesting to see what happens this season come August and more people like me start to drop entire DirecTV subscriptions to other providers for NFL RedZone...

    Well I watched all 16 Colts games out of market. Not one of them was shown in my market except for the national games I guess. They will lose some subs but if when D12 is functional they add more DMA's local channels then more new subs will come over as well and get the new ST offer so either way they will lose some and gain some. This year also some got the offer that nuw subs were getting even though they had been with D* for years. Im not sure what avenue I will try this next season. I know that I love SuperFan and that I used the mobile alot when I had to leave the house for what ever reason. Watching it on the Droid is not bad but I have to have SuperFan to get that. Even if I have to pay full price for everything next year I will get to see all the Colts games vs just nationally televised games and I will be able to watch any games on my phone if I have to leave and for me that is enough. Raising the price $35 will not keep me away. I am hopeful I can get a deal or at least SuperFan free but time will tell. Also this season others signed up for the 10 month pay for $279 I believe and that included SuperFan for them. I would do that to. I understand that I am not making things better for you but I cant drop my sub to make it better for you when the package is what I want. If I am willing to pay for what I want then its my decision. Sorry but I am willing to pay. I would probably be willing to pay up to about $200 more then that a season if I had to really but we will have to see what happens. If I got most of the Colts games without ST then I would think hard about dropping it to but that is not the case.

    No need to apologize man! If I was in your shoes I'd do the exact thing! Thankfully, none of my short term or long term plans have me moving so I'll be able to watch my Niners year in and year out :)

    The whole NFL RedZone has really "messed up" the good thing DirecTV had going with its exclusive contract with the NFL. Now that other providers have it and DirecTV doesn't, but will charge you $414 a season to get thier version of it, but you can get it for less than $50 a season on other providers, I think DirecTV is going to have to re-think its strategy....they know they have the die-hard, displaced fans, but might be losing the local team fans, fantasy players and ho-hum fans that want a little bit more from the NFL season with NFL RedZone

    BTW, how mad were you when the Colts pulled thier starters and lost thier first game of the season? :lol: I was PISSED! That decision by Caldwell cost me $787 since I had Manning playing and lost my fantasy league's Super Bowl :( I can only imagine a die hard fans reaction.....I can understand if they had already lost a game earlier in the year, but you guys could have had a perfect season! :)

    Well I was disappointed but I got over it. I mean I would rather have Manning going into the playoffs instead of possible not cause we wanted to have a perfect season when we already had the #1 seed locked up. If it was up to me I would of played Manning longer then they did and would of kept starting D in probably all games. That back up QB stinks. I hope he never gets action again except for preseason games but its all good. The coach was smart to not risk any damaging blows before the playoffs even start. Some coaches are not as greedy as the Pats. I loved it when New England went for it 4th and 2 to go in the Colts game and Indy stopped them. They had no business going for it on that side of the field with the Colts that close in the game and making a comeback. They got what they deserved. It could of cost Indy alot to play them when it wasnt really worth it. So I guess I will be okay with it but wish things could be different. FYI I hate the Pats so they can have their perfect season. It always reminds me of how they blew it in the Super Bowl LMAO. Pefect season but blew it to the Giants wow that should of never happened.
