Except for those that want it, but not at any of the prices in the poll.
True, he should have had a category "I want it, but for less then $250". Then you could post your amount the thread.
Having $250 as the lowest amount was probably a good move. Whatever he made as the lowest amount, probably would get the most votes. I doubt they would go any lower then $250 for NFL ST + SF.
Yes, you're right about them never going lower than $250.
I've always wondered, however (and might have mentioned it here before) if Directv would make more money if they charged half of what they do now (or less). Would it more than double the number of subscribers? It might.
What if they did charge $100? I think even the most casual football fan might get the package. They could quadruple their subscriptions and possibly bring in many more D* subscribers. We'll never know.
I called yesterday and got Ticket for 24.99 for 6 months and Superfan for free. My friend called and also got the same deal.
Its been mentioned multiple times here before but because there are so many (which just goes to show how popluar it still is even at the price) sunday ticket threads the explanation gets lost in the shuffle.
The NFL doesnt want every tom dick & harry to have sunday ticket....it s related to tv ratings/local commercials ad rates during the games....thats why the price stays high.
I think obviously that depends on what kind of feeling you're going for.
Ive been re-thinking this, in that if I could continue to pay in monthly installments and not in one lump sum I would continue even if it went past $300
I used to get paid to watch sporting events...I guess I could work out the same type of deal. Let's say $100/hour? I dropped Sunday Ticket about five years ago. It cost too much for the amount of interest I had in the league. There is more than enough football on the OTA channels for my liking.
I can see where people that are trapped in their homes during bad weather would have more interest....in Florida there are just too many other things to do.
That would explain it to me since, as someone here mentioned, if the NFL lowered the baseline price for ST I would think that they would see a large increase of subs.
I'm guessing that this is also the reason for ST blacking out the feeds that are being shown on our local mkt FOX & CBS affiliates, to protect the locals (ie local ads)?
Interesting. I didn't realize the NFL would have any say in it. I assumed that D* paid them a certain amount of money for the rights and then D* could charge anything they wanted for the service as long as they paid their bill to the NFL on time.
I dropped Sunday Ticket two years ago due to price and the premium for HD which I already pay for. With my savings, I bought a used BUD and new HD FTA receiver, and have been, up to now, been able to find just about all my teams game on satellite. That will probably change this year, since most of the free FOX stations I watched were owned by a company that went bankrupt...But $370? Geeze.
But as you can see in the sunday ticket thread ALOT of people are getting superfan free &/or deals & so arent paying $370.
Not me :sure:
Of course we don't even have a team in the LA area...
$72...thats the cost of adding the sports tier on Dish and getting the NFL Redzone Channel which is what I found myself watching 90 % of the time on when I had the ST and SuperFan
I picked price is no object only because the highest price I'd pay isn't listed there. I've had it for 8 years and don't see it stopping anytime.
Sundays I have atleast 7-15 people over and we watch games all day. It's a social event and it's worth every penny. I grew up in Chicago and was at Soldier Field so I know the game day experience. To continue to do what we do is worth the cost to me, plus everyone else brings the food and drinks, so we all contribute. It's a blast and fun. Now I would probably do it even if I didn't have this group of friends but the price point would probably stop around $700 or so.
I just want the Giants games... that's all I want.
I get the NHL package: $170 for the 70 or so Devils games I don't get in my area (about $2.50 per game).
For the Giants, usually about 2-4 games are available where I am so it's $350 or whatever it is for SuperFan HD (about $25 per game). Not worth it at all.
