    I called yesterday. Loyalty couldn’t find a thing. Transferred me to some team that supposedly handles ST and was told it was because Max was on my account set to auto renew. I didn’t have max last year so not sure why. He removed auto renew and claims I will get free ST. Guess I see what happens in Sept.

    I just called and they said the system showed me getting Sunday Ticket Max Free this year. Been a customer 20+ years with premiere package.

    I’m not holding my breath. Not sure I’ll miss it this year. Baseball with no fans really takes a lot of energy from the viewing. Assume NFL will be same.

    CGI with Dolby Atmos can solve the problem.

    I'm down for seeing them put 66,000 cardboard cutouts into seats and play music from Tecmo Bowl, instead. :)

    I should try for the heck of it tomorrow morning, and if it’s cancelled this year, maybe it’ll be free for next year. Since you’ve been with DTV for so long, are you still legacy billing or ATT? Just curious what number you called, unless you chatted? Thanks.

    Oooooooooooh, I don't want to call them and ask for anything but I want the ST and I don't feel like paying for it this year. Please let us know how you make out.

    I am billed through ATT now. The number I called was 877-999-1083. The guy was very nice and said he was based out of Mesa, AZ. I already have my email confirmation stating the free Sunday Ticket Max. Good luck!

    still have not received the FREE email

    my last bill mentioned auto renew starting soon
    "Your NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX subscription is renewing for another exciting season. Additional information included. Any cancellation must be prior to the date provided herein. No refunds thereafter. "

    i think i will cancel it and try the weekend before season starts to add it free. any other suggestions? i have called recently and no offers only Showtime free 4 months or something small like that

    Well I contacted them today. As the season will start soon enough, and I knew I had a $60 credit rolling off soon. So I wanted to see what they could offer me, because I was for sure considering switching providers, if given the cold shoulder regarding any discounts. I was able to get them to renew the $60 discount for 12 months, after my current one expires next month. I also asked them about NFL Sunday Ticket Max. I was offered $16 off for 6 months, which I asked them to give me a minute to think about it.

    Ultimately I took it, ST Max will cost me $50 for 6 months. However I was able to get the $60 credit extended for a year. Overall covering the cost, just paying a bit more for 6 months. I did consider waiting, and trying to get ST Max for less. However this year has already been enough.. I really don't feel like repeatedly talking to them. Trying to get a cheaper deal. With the way this year has been, I have been looking forward to watching some football.

    Well last year they wouldn't even offer me anything. I legit set my account to cancel at the end of my billing cycle, right at the start of the season. I told the rep if they wanted to keep me, they had until the end of my billing cycle to call me. They ended up calling me, offering me the current $60 credit i had, and a discount on ST.

    As I said in my above post. I could of just had the $60 credit re-added today, and waited on NFL ST Max. However I called them way to much last year, and I don't feel like doing that again this year. I have had enough stress with the way things have gone in 2020. So I will eat paying them for ST upfront. But I understand other's pushing this till the start of the season.

    Hell week 1 is their free preview of NFL ST. So for the one's who want to push this as long as possible, to get the best deal. You can wait till the start of week 2, to see what they will offer you.

    I hope we can do that. I don't see how, but I've been looking forward to it, too.

    Well hopefully players, and staff of every team can do their parts, so a full season can be played. I will watch as long as games are being played. If the season doesn't survive, AT&T might owe me a bit of a credit. Still I am not stressing about it now. I just look forward to watching something I enjoy, with the way this year has been for us all.

    I called this number (877-999-1083) that was posted yesterday. The guy who answered said he was with Premium Support. I told him I wanted to check and see if I was under a commitment and see if they had any Sunday Ticket offers. I was not under a commitment, currently am receiving $60 off a month for 12 months and was told there was no deals for Sunday Ticket. It was already on my account for 6 payments.

    I asked that it be removed, he said that it had been so I logged in online and could still see it was under my subscriptions and I was still be charged for it. Put me on hold a few times but kept coming back every few minutes to let me know he was working on it. One of the times he came back he said he found that he could give me Sunday Ticket Max for free now that regular Sunday Ticket had been removed. I let him finish his work and then found that the old had been removed and the new free Max offer added but the first payment of $48.99 was still showing on my account. He got that fixed for me as well. So Sunday Ticket Max for free for me this year. Only needed the regular Sunday Ticket but will take it. Bring on the season.
