    I don't get posts like this. Then why are you in a sports thread??

    Because I love sports and have NFL ST which is actually what the thread is about. This isn't an "I love ESPN and sleep with a teddy bear with their initials on it" thread. It's very possible and easy for that matter to love sports and NOT really care anything about ESPN or think their programming sucks by and large.

    Usually the only time I watch one of their shows outside a game is if it's a big sports day and there's no other reasonably sane national entity doing one on a national basis. Like when the NCAA brackets are announced. I watch CBS until that shows over then go to ESPN for more since I've never really seen anyone else doing so.

    NFL Network is so much better than ESPN on game days. Just sayin.

    $300 for NFL package is so high....The fact that a lot of games will be in prime time should lower the cost!

    Agree, Bill. I don't watch anything on ESPN anymore except live games. I used to watch Baseball Tonight and some of the college stuff (like when the NCAA tournament bracket is announced), but now there are alternatives that are much better to me. If you would have suggested to me a few years ago that I would choose to watch Deion, Irvin, & Sapp I would have laughed in your face! But I like the NFL Network's coverage and it keeps me away from the tools on ESPN (Berman being chief) or the networks until kickoff.

    I don't think we need to worry about over-saturation of the NFL. When the season is only 5 months long (with the playoffs included; four months if your team sucks like my Redskins) and only 16 regular season games, I can't see people suffering from NFL overload. Football has a built in advantage in that the seasons are short and there is a week between games. I love the NBA but I could go a week without watching a game and not miss it. If you miss a week in the NFL you are missing a significant amount.

    I was told $299 but that would include the "to go" app

    There's not a week between games if they are airing on Thursday, Sunday, Monday, and I guess a couple of times late in the season on Saturday.

    It does, if you go to Directvs website and look at NFL ST's page it's advertising such. It's now called NFL Sunday Ticket Ultimate and it includes everything.

    Do we have to go thru this same thing ever year.

    What about the $$ discount they give every year.

    I had a $255 credit balance on my credit card. Instead of using that credit to buy something stupid and not need, I went ahead and bought the sunday ticket now. $300 isn't too bad plus I got it for free last year and $26 ($360 in bill credits). For me, I look at it for $137/Year over the last two years.

    I meant there was a week between games for each team, so there is only one chance to see each team in a given period. Basketball fans will get Heat fatigue and baseball fans will get Yankee fatigue, but no one will get Patriots fatigue (in terms of games, not talking heads).

    Anyway you slice it, even with the NFL having a national game 3 days a week, it is still a rare enough occurrence to where a majority of people won't get tired of the product.

    I yearn for the good old days when it was $89 without the kabuki dance every year. :lol:

    I yearn for the day when gas was $1.29 a gallon and that was considered outrageous.

    Yeah but to go is horrible since they moved it from adobe air download and install to the dtv website. Anyone know how much it is without the "to go"

    No idea. That option may not exist anymore. Have to wait and see when it gets closer to the season.

    Sunday Ticket was never $89. The first year was $99 for 13 games on Sunday. 1995 was the year.
