    It's real as I confirmed this several months ago when I was calling to subscribe to MLS Direct Kick.

    I called yesterday, wanted to make sure the ST was deactivated. It wasn't and it is now. The CSR told me I would have been charged even tho they are putting it out without cost. Not sure if she knew what she was talking about but she assured me I would get the ST at no cost since I called.

    Not a hoax.

    I’m the same way as far as subscribing. Football is the only sport I don’t follow. I have the other sports subscriptions MLB EI, NBA League, and CenterIce

    Sure would be nice but I really doubt that will happen. They make SO much money from bars on this. I haven't received anything in the mail about free NFLST, but my account is currently on suspension since there's no reason to have TV when you have no customers.

    I got it too. I have DirecTV's Premier package.

    What a waste, nobody in my household has any interest in this kind of stuff. Would much rather get some bill credits or PPV credits. Heck, we would get more use out of a free year of EPIX than this NFL stuff.

    I have had Premier package and NFL ST since 95 (need my Giants games here in S Fl.) I have not gotten any email about free NFL ST.

    I can tell you what the CSR I spoke to told me. Not sure how much of what she told me was true. She said I still had the ST active and I would have been billed for the upcoming season. She took the ST off and told me I would still get it, but at no cost this year. Everybody is gonna have access to it at no cost. Still not sure I would have been billed, not a fan of anything a CSR tells me. Like you, I have never received that email.

    I have Sunday Ticket listed on my account and it says "This package automatically renews unless you’ve already opted out." But I have already gotten 2 emails. The first said I would get ST free for the 2020 season and later on I got another one that said I would get ST MAXX free for the 2020 season. I've saved the emails in case they try to charge me for it in September though. I got billed $183 for MLB EI in April so I'm going to have to address that with them as soon as MLB finally figures out what they are going to do.

    I called again tonight (DirecTV Loyalty), to make sure it was taken off last week when I called. It wasn't. Loyalty CSR sent another request in to cancel autorenew. I then asked if STMax was available to me for free for 2020, since so many of my friends (here) are getting it? He calmly said no, and asked if there was anything else I needed help with....:thumbsdown:

    I got my email last week. I've had it once or twice before on a freebie. I don't care enough about games other than the Giants to pay that kind of money for it. There are plenty of NFL games on TV as it is, between the 3-4 games on Sunday afternoon and the games on Sunday, Monday and Thursday night. That's plenty of NFL for me. But as a freebie? Sure, why not?

    I felt the same way and never bothered with the ST. But when NJ legalized sports betting I decided to get it and found it to be a big help. Broke even for the season, as usual, but I had a lot more fun. And I watched a whole bunch of games.

    I have had ST for at least 6 years. I know I got it free once early on when directv was giving it free in an effort to sway Dish and cable customers. Paid for it ever since and been on auto-renew. Never got the email everyone here is talking about. If what your saying is true I suppose I should cancel it? Already cancelled MLBEI about 2 weeks ago since I was got billed the 1st installment.

    I have a feeling I'll get more use out of Sunday Ticket this season due to my team... well.... you know.

    *cough*Pats*cough*

    I am excited to see how Jarrett Stidham does. He did fairly well in preseason last season but... that's preseason. We shall see if he's meant to be the true successor to Brady or bust.

    Yes, if what the CSR told me was true you should make the call. If what the CSR said was true...I have little faith in anything I hear from these people.

    He might be a decent QB, but he's not gonna be Brady. I really want to see what happens to the Pats this year. I'm also looking forward to watching Brady in his new uniform. The problem I see is...will there be a season?
