    An article I read said no changes to the DirecTV deal ($1bn per year).

    The announcement is between the NFL and major 3 networks only.

    The DirecTV Sunday Ticket is a separate agreement altogether between DirecTV and the NFL. While they both pertain to NFL broadcasting, they are independent agreements alltogether.

    The DirecTV agreement in place at this time continues through 2014.

    No there will still be only three games on Thanksgiving, as NBC will be replacing the NFL Network game.
    The other interesting note about the new agreement is that FOX and CBS will be losing their strict conference alignment. Some AFC road games will be seen on Fox and CBS will be able to carry some NFC road games.

    I hate this deal. I love football but it's getting to the point there are too many live game timeslots. I liked Sundays, Monday nights, and the last couple of weeks the afternoon Saturday games.

    eh?

    Too many live games?

    I'll put this one in the "never would have predicted that response" bin.:)

    I love football, but I don't want to have too many games available to me, at no cost?

    Most peculiar...., at least if I read it correctly.:)

    Since there is no mention of the ST package, I wonder if the NFL will follow what MLB has done. That is, have ST on multiple providers and not just on DirecTV.

    That will likely be a future topic, as the current agreement is still in force for 2 more years.

    more non-sunday games will have a major impact on fantasy leagues and the betting world which have both been key to the growth of nfl popularity.

    So far, all of you have missed the Big Picture. Networks will be paying 63% more annually relative to current contract. This means that network carriage fees will only increase dramatically over the next few years.

    Even if ST doesn't increase, all DTV will see a price hike associated directly with this deal.

    Nope...plenty of us see the big picture...and its not the picture you're painting.

    Those network agreements for at least several of the major networks are already in place...so corresponding rate increases from the new agreements are down the road....that's the real big picture.

    You want the big picture. Fox broadcasting inked a 5-year deal with Cablevision one year ago, calling for a 55 cent carriage fee in 2011, to 1 dollar in 2016. That's a 13% annual hike thru the life of the contract. Come 2015, Fox broadcasting will argue that, given its programming costs, it needs a 18% annual increase for the next five years, thru 2021.

    That would translate into each Cablevision customer paying DTV 2.30 cents a month for Fox broadcasting.

    That's the big picture.

    Of course most networks are under contract. But when the contract is up for renewal, the networks will ask for significantly higher price hikes than they have gotten so far.

    Regrettably, so many of you don't mind.

    We mind...we just don't all think those things will happen in that timeline.

    The easy solution to that is to watch only the games in those slots and ignore the rest.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the NFL. But it's reaching the point with me of over saturation. I feel almost obligated to watch every game (thats my problem, I know) and I would rather it all be on Sundays & Mondays like I said. Plus, when games keep disappearing from ST and the price keeps going up doesn't seem right either. But this is all just me.

    Does D* still have a discount for not getting local channels from satellite? I may want to take advantage of that soon if fees keep going up since I am fortunate enough to get all my networks OTA if I want, I just usually get them off satellite since they take less DVR space.

    The NFL opened up bidding to all providers a couple of years ago. None except DirecTV would pony up the money. Also, the broadcast stations don't want multiple providers to have Sunday Ticket so don't count on more than one provider having it.
