    I couldn't believe it, but you are right. For the 2010 Season, the Bucs play No Sunday Nights, No Monday Nights and No Thursday Night or Saturday Night games. Those amount to 41 games the Bucs will get to watch on TV. Wow.

    Actually 43 games they will probably get to watch:

    8 thursday
    1 saturday
    17 sunday
    17 monday

    Of course they could always get flexed into SNF. :lol:

    Actually, there are 10 Thursday games - three of the ten are on Turkey Day.

    So the total is 45 Prime-Time games the Bucs get to watch!

    Thanks for the correction. I need to get working and begin to assemble the weekly schedule sheets.

    :)

    Hosting the Pats Early game I believe. No it's not right the Lions get one every year, but it happens

    I don't have an issue with the Lions getting this every year. Yes it's the early game . I have more of an issue with Dallas/Arizona Christmas Night.

    They did originate Thanksgiving football a long time ago. So it's their tradition. I liked it a lot better when it was played outdoors though.

    Personally, I believe DirecTV should have to pay the NFL slightly less for the rights to Sunday Ticket now that the NFL has their own Red Zone channel out there competing against the DirecTV version.

    Trust me, I'm not holding my breath.

    (I went to a lot of Bucs games during the '80s and early '90s when my father had season tickets, so this is nothing new for me. :D )

    Like many others here posting, I've had NFL Sunday Ticket since day one of its existence.

    Having Super Fan bundled is an overdue, but welcome change.

    As for the $299 auto-renewal pricing...its lower than the combined price of NFLST and Super Fan in the past, but still pricey for many people.

    I had been psyching myself down for my planned cancellation call this morning for the auto-renew....only to get offered a pretty good discount deal. :eek2:

    Looks like I'll be with NFLST another year. :)

    The sunday ticket channel 112 is now active.

    So if u had ST last year & are renewing u should have the "you are authorized" message.

    When directv was still negotiating the ST contract extension there was already talk that the NFLN version of redzone would be coming down the line so both directv/NFL already knew about it at the time.

    Maybe thats why directv only paid $1,000,000,000 per year instead of $1,100,000,000. :D

    well i got my sort of sunday ticket deal from D...i called and told them i wanted to dump time warner cable along with wanting to let sunday ticket renew...talked the retention guy into the following:

    20 off for 6 months = 120
    free hd for a year (plus tax), 10.55 a month = 126.60
    hd extra pack free for 6 months = 30 plus tax = 32
    starz pack free for 6 months..not putting a value on it because probably wont watch it much...

    so thats almost 280 dollars and sunday ticket on auto renewal will be 318 with tax, so getting it about 38 bucks...i can live with that...and i am dumping warner anyway which will save me another 65 bucks a month (unfortunately have to keep roadrunner..not many alternatives until Uverse gets in my neighborhood..god i wish i could get FIOS for internet...)

    i intially would have been happy with 20 a month for 12 months which i know some people have been offered, but i actually got more than that because of the tax added onto the HD access cost.

    so thats my deal, cant wait to see what others get. bring on the NFL HD!

    As a newcomer to ST this year, I am hoping for the $20X6. All the extra would just be icing on the cake which would make me very happy.

    Sweet deal, although I think you will need to pay the sales tax on the programming, even if it is 'free'. I think they always charge you for the programming and the tax and then credit back just the programming fee. The tax doesn't make up much of this deal so I would say that's a great one!

    I think it will be a HUGE error in judgment if they try to charge for To-Go for people who didn't intentionally ask for it.
