Same here, but no indication of the $299 renewal pricing yet.
I have been a NFLST sub since 98 and I took the 7 payment option. It breaks up the pain of paying and if the renewal rate is $299 instead of the $318 with the 7 payments, a call to D* will get me a credit for the difference. After giving me free Superfan and 6 X $20 credit last year,getting a $15 credit should be easy .
I too now have Sunday Ticket showing up under the "My Current Sports" section of programming on the DirecTV website. I also now have something called NFL Sunday Ticket To-Go in the same section. I assume they will not tack on To-Go without asking me, but it's there. No prices listed for anything yet, so probably still premature to call.
edit: The link for Sunday Ticket To-Go is an old URL for SuperFan. Clicking on it returns you to the DirecTV home page.
In "My Sports" it shows NFL Sunday Ticket twice and NFL Sunday Ticket To-Go once. All three show $0.00 and have the remove option grayed out.
Under "Recent Activity" I got this:
05/26/2010 # NFL SUNDAY TICKET 2010 - Charge $0.00 $0.00
I think the item under recent activity is just sort of a marker that says you are signed up for auto-renewal.
Yep. All very typical and the way it's worked for the past 10+ years. Autorenewal "stubs" start appearing on May/June bills. Just a reminder that you're on autorenewal and if you don't want it anymore to call up and cancel. Actual charges don't start until July/August bills.
SkyREPORT - Speaking to an investment conference earlier this week, DIRECTV CEO Michael White stressed the various innovations coming from DIRECTV. These include multi-room viewing, a new Sunday Ticket offer, a Sunday Ticket iPad application, more HD channels and more.
Yes, that is reflected by the changes already announced.
A bigger bill and a free sweatshirt
They removed the price of "Superfan", everyone who gets Sunday Ticket now gets "Superfan" for free. $100 savings for a lot of people. You'll be disappointed about the sweatshirt though, that's not happening.
I want a football phone
Yes if you cancel before the season starts they will credit anything you have paid to your account (I don't think they will credit it back to your credit card, or send you a check thouhg).
I did this last summer. I had made 1 or 2 payments toward Sunday Ticket before I got laid off from work. I called in and cancelled and they credited my account so my next months bill was much lower.
Like this one?? :lol:
How old is that?
:lol: :lol: I just did a Google image search for a "football phone" and that was the first one :lol: :lol:
Anyone have a full breakdown of NFL ST for 2010?
1. Will it have full HD without the extra $100.00
2. What deal should I try to obtain by calling DTV, seeing as how this will be my first year for NFL ST?
3. Is it worth the cost?
Yes. An official source posted the information to this very thread. It's here. (The new subscriber price is usually $20 more than the renewal rate, so that would be $314.99, spread out over six months on your bill.)
You should try to obtain a deal where you give them money in exchange for NFL Sunday Ticket.
Seriously, I think the question you meant to ask is what kind of deal you can actually get from DirecTV. And the answer to that is -- there is no real answer, because it depends on many factors. It can depend on how long you've been with DirecTV. It can depend on how many other DirecTV services you're paying for. It can depend on whether or not you're currently under a contract with DirecTV. It can depend on how many other discounts the CSR you happen to get on the phone has given out that day. It can depend on the phase of the moon.
But the most important reason why there's no real answer right now is because nobody knows how the change to the pricing structure is going to affect things. For example, one reasonably common discount last year was free Superfan -- but that's not a discount they can give that year.
(And it should be mentioned that if you try calling right now, they won't be able to do anything but tell you to call back closer to the beginning of the season.)
It is for me, because I'm living on the other side of the country from my team, the Bucs, and their games are rarely available on TV here in L.A. (the Bucs played no prime-time games last season, and I think they were only picked for a local CBS or Fox broadcast once). I also play fantasy football, and so it's very nice to be able to get on-screen stats, or to flip to the Red Zone Channel during commercial breaks and see what else is going on.
Thank you very much
Here is the deal I got, I've been with D* for four years, I called to voice me displeasure with customer service and misinformation I was getting regarding ST.
Customer retention offered me a $200 credit if I did the one time payment option.
Is it worth the money? Yes even at full price. I love having choices instead of what the locals give me. My NFC team is the AZ Cardinals. Without ST I would hardly see them.
Id say it depends how big of a football fan you are and do you you follow out of area teams.
PS on edit: I don't want to give the impression that everyone who calls is going to get that kind of a deal, you may very well not but it maybe worth the call.
I just hope they finally FIX the Game Mix channels.
