    Took 5 minutes. Got ST for free, Max cost $17/month. My big $60/month credit came off this month and he suggested waiting a month to call back because he didn't see any credits available for me.

    Just took it for now and will call DTV in a couple of weeks.

    But they didn't charge you more (like in your rental car analogy).

    It's more like ST sucked for you because it went out. ST for you is not as good as you thought it was. Now (as always) you get to make a decision on whether ST is still worth it to you - and whether you'll get it again in the future.

    I don't get how it's DirecTV's fault when the production truck CBS used lost power.... I just don't get that logic... at... all.

    I think it is Loyalty. VIP I think is now basically Retention. And they did offer you something. There are plenty of us that had offers roll off & didn't even get $5.

    In the past when I had ST regular I was able to watch games on the app. In the beginning it used to be you needed Max, but they changed that.

    Google Play store lists NFL Sunday Ticket app as:

    Don’t have NFL SUNDAY TICKET? (Doesn't say MAX is needed)
    Go to nflst.directv.com to sign up!

    Down below that it states:

    Further in the description it has a description for Fantasy Zone and Red Zone:

    I only have Sunday Ticket, not MAX, and yesterday on the app if I tried Red Zone or Fantasy Zone it would not let me use it as I got a message that my plan didn't include those. I know yesterday was the free trial week but from the description it doesn't sound like MAX is required to just watch the out of market games.

    Well I don't typically use the app since I prefer to be home on Sundays, but I do know that last year I did use it for a few minutes & was able to watch games. I have only had Max two times, including this year, and around 3 years ago or when added Fantasy. Actually every year I have used the app when I got stuck out of the house for an hour and watched games. It was the 1st time they tried to offer me Max and the lady said you no longer have to have Max to watch games on the app, only for Fantasy & Redzone. I declined since I don't use those. I found this:

    Thats a dumb statement. I get to decide if its worth it to me. I didnt get what I paid for and it was a one off so a credit should do the trick. If I get this every week, yeah I will have to decide if its still worth it to me.

    But you seem to get how it was my fault? So when you pay your cell phone bill and you have zero data the first day of the month when it resets is that your issue to?

    2nd attempt and still no offers.
    They said I had a $20/credit per month promo but it wasn't dependent on Sunday Ticket.
    I'll try one more time.
    Are people immediately asking for VIP? How does that work?

    Last Sunday I had explosive diarrhea after eating a tasty conglomerate of greasy foods & missed 30 minutes of games (Much needed 10 minute shower). Maybe I should call & ask for discounts to my bill & see if they'll throw in some Pepto Bismol as well.

    Your analogies are the worst. I'm definitely not a DirecTV fan when it comes to their customer service, but DirecTV had nothing to do with CBS' technical issues. When the internet goes down for 5 minutes, you probably call your ISP & demand a refund :eek:

    My husband talked to Loyalty, I think, & told them he didn't like the sound of the offer when the rep asked. He was then transferred to VIP.

    I did "cancel service". I previously spoke with "loyalty" and they were worthless.

    So I wonder if the reason they're having us now do a year contract is because ABC must be in a contract dispute. I just got a message on my screen from yesterday saying ABC channels may soon be gone. They suckered me in but not surprising considering how Directv has been the last few weeks.
