    I believe that is the number I called that gave me the $120 off a month for a year. Cant beat that. I took it. No commitment either. I am not under contract and own my own equipment even the Genie.

    I was only able to get about half of what I got last year in terms of discounts with nothing taken off the full price of Sunday Ticket. One final call to their VIP Dept resulted in total failure. Is there a way to cancel the auto renewal of ST after the regular season ends in January from my end or do i have to call them to cancel ?

    Lol. Sounds like my experience to a tee. Except in mine I got several bill credits each call. It's a 3-ring circus there now.

    I don't think so. But calling shouldn't be an issue since they aren't interested in keeping current customers.

    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.

    It's Disney. ESPN, Disney, and Freeform have been blasting with "we're going to be dropped from Directv" stuff. Directv even blocks it when ESPN puts it on their ticker, lol. I hadn't seen it for ABC, but if you live in a ABC O&O market, I would fully expect those channels to be included. It won't be for most markets, but NYC, LA, Chicago, Raleigh, Fresno, Houston, Philadelphia, and San Francisco would lose ABC if that is the case.

    I am a season ticket member for the Titans. This is the first year I tried the 100 dollar promotion. I filled out the form and submitted it. I got an email back right away, and it stated the process would take 5 business days. That was like 3 weeks ago. Since, I tried to fill out another form and I do not even receive an email anymore. I called the Chargers (long story) and Titans. Both say its a Directv issue. Yesterday, I was told that it should be done by week 2 and that week 1 games were free (directv free preview). So will this work? starting to panic.

    Good point! I forgot about the Disney streaming channel since I don't have kids that really watch that stuff. They are pretty much Hulu and I rarely watch ESPN these days.

    Took a couple of calls over a couple of weeks but I was able to get basic NFLST for free. I would have liked Max for the Red Zone but the rep said there were no discounts available for max, just the free NFLST. So for a year, I can live without Red Zone. Thanks to all who post here, your info is helpful.

    Good morning
    I got NFLST Max for the price of NFLST, I'm happy. Took an hour in "CHAT" and then they called me, I was never rude, just persistent. Premier customer with $108 in credits per month. Can't wait for Fiber in my area.

    Tried the 855-407-3978 number but they couldn’t do anything because apparently I have an AT&T account. She gave me a number for them and the guy could do nothing. $12 or so off ST per month and no other discounts. Zero interest in trying to help me or keep me. Might try back once more and see if they can do anything. If not, adios directv/att, whatever the hell they are now.

    I tried chat this morning, after 5 separate calls got me no better than extending my $40/month credit for 12 months, and $63 off the ST charge. 20 minutes on the chat, (I was multitasking with my 5th phone call at the same time), and free STMax. Crazy how much work goes into this annually.

    Took two calls this year. First call to the main number -- nada. I'm a 20+ year customer who orders NHLCI every year and has ATT internet and cell, so they're making money from me. Advised them I'm cancelling at the end of my cycle if they can't renew my 60/mo discount. No dice. Tried the 3878 number and got a completely different experience. Guy was helpful -- switched my package to one where the only channels I lose are El Rey and Boomerang, got $54 off a month for 12 months and STMAX for free. That's better. On for another year.

    Called the VIP number on Friday, CSR asked me where I got the number I said I was transferred, we chatted about the weather and tee weekend, she went over my current Plan (Xtra) but I didn't want to make any changes, i said that I just got my paper bill and noticed that there was no more credits. I asked her what she could offer on the monthly charges and if there was any discounts on ST she went away and came back after 5 min with $45/month credit and free ST MAX. I said yes to a 12 month contract extension, this was one of the easiest call to DirecTV I had in a long time, I must have hit the right CSR on a good day.

    I tried the chat but alas, it may be a sign I need to leave. The rep on chat sent me to a supervisor and said he would forward my account to someone who might be able to offer me something, but he couldn’t do squat. He said they might have an offer sometime in mid November, which almost made me spit out my beer. I might try once more before I throw in the towel and move to Cox.

    No. I have ATT for cell and internet, but my Directv account is separate, and I want to keep it that way.

    This was the toughest year I've had with the CSRs. 20 year customer with Premier package, the double-whammy of last year's $60/mo. credit for 12 months expiring and the ST auto-renewal billing kicking in had my bill up to $288/month. I've called 6 times since Wednesday, and only after telling retention to cancel my service at the end of the billing period did he suggest calling the VIP number after processing the disconnect request to see if they could help.

    In the end they made me happy, basically the same deal as last year - $59/month off premier and free ST Max. He also threw in a $200 visa gift card and extended my contract for 1 year, which was fine with me. I did not want to leave and did not want to lose the ticket but was not going to pay full price since the Steelers usually have the full 5 prime time games and 4-5 other national games so I end up only using the ST to see them 6 or 7 games a year. That's way too expensive for watching a handful of games, since I don't care about watching any other games, fantasy, red zone, etc. on the ticket.

    If next year is this difficult, I will probably be done with directv. If 20 years of service and $200+ monthly bills aren't enough to warrant the ST freebie as a thank you, then so be it. I certainly wouldn't still be with them if not for Sunday Ticket all these years.
