    I love Football but never paid for Sunday Ticket, only time I had it they gave it free. That is crazy money.

    Does bother me but I really enjoyed last season. I'm gonna try to get it at no cost, might spring for the price if I can't.

    Sounds like a lot until you consider what people pay to go to the games.

    Stopped doing that 10 years ago. Way too expensive, if I'm gonna get raped I'd like to leave with a smile on my face not an empty wallet. Yeah, I'd rather spend 3-4 hundred bucks on the ST than the cost one or two games in a stadium. I've always thought watching the NFL on TV was better than sitting in a stadium and not really being able to see what's happening on the field. With MLB's camera coverage we get to see a whole lot more of the game than what we'd see in the stadium. Same thing with the NFL.

    multi system can work as non exclusive
    Just like how it is with the NBA, NHL, MLB.

    Quote of the year:
    “The NFL is going to be in a good position,” an unnamed ownership source told Kaplan. “I mean, I don’t mean that to sound obnoxious. But I mean, they’re gonna pay us a lot of money, or there are others with different business models lined up to pay us different money for different versions of it. . . . I think the NFL will be fine. I think AT&T is paralyzed.

    Paralyzed may be too strong a word, but given that cable/satellite subs are down, cord-cutting is up and streaming seems to be the foreseeable future, if I'm the NFL, yeah, I don't want to be locked into an exclusive deal with a declining subscriber base. The thing is, ST has given D* competitive leverage in the marketplace. It's possible the NFL might continue to offer D* exclusivity in the cable/satellite arena, but there's no way they won't be doing streaming in the next several years.

    I can't imagine watching football games on a streaming platform. Those remotes are nowhere near as good as the D* remotes are for watching any kind of sports. Just my opinion.

    If the NFL could get more money by dropping AT&T's exclusivity they would do so in a heartbeat ... but as the article stated, "a bird in the hand". Giving up $1.5 billion per year would only happen if they were sure they could do better.

    AT&T|DIRECTV is obligated to pay them the $1.5 billion dollars per year. They can't say "ratings are down, subscriptions are down, we will pay $1 billion next year". In a way that does "paralyze" AT&T ... since their only option would be to opt out and take their chances without NFL ST being an exclusive. Since AT&T made the NFL Sunday ticket deal a requirement for purchasing DIRECTV I don't see them losing exclusivity unless AT&T can get a better offer.

    Both sides have "a bird in the hand". Neither should rock the boat.

    There are people that turn a football game on and never touch the remote. :)

    I used to pause the game to get a beverage or use the bathroom. But now there are so many commercials, no need to pause the game.

    But I agree, if you're shifting from game-to-game, the streaming apps I've used (NHL.TV and MLB.TV) are cumbersome and time consuming. You have to exit out of one game and then select another then you have to select which broadcast you want to watch. And then Live or From the Beginning. Certainly not as easy as PREV button on a DIRECTV remote or directly entering the channel number. However, the apps also have an option when you return to a game, you can go live, or watch from where you were when you left; just like pausing the game via double-play.

    But the PQ on MLB.TV and NHL.TV is very very good.

    So much this. The biggest problem I have (other than the occasional buffering delay) is that it is very tedious if you want to flip between (say) two different games of interest. It can take close to a minute, and that's if you are good with a remote and your internet is cooperating.

    Same here. I wouldn't be able to watch nearly as many games streaming as I do on DTV. I can watch 3 or 4 games at a time, skip the commercials, and never miss a play in any of the games. I block out the ticker at the bottom of the screen and use the 30-second skip to avoid seeing updates of other games. The only downside is when the announcers blab the scores of other games without warning, but for the most part it's way better than streaming the games.

    I had to use mlb.tv the other day to watch MLB all star game since I'm in a Nexstar blackout area.... and the PQ was really sharp


    Used the app built into my Samsung 4k TV


    As someone else mentioned mlb.tv PQ may very on your broadband connection.

    My tv is hard wired ethernet

    When the NFL is on I watch a bunch of games at a time. I can't see how an Apple TV box or a Fire TV box could allow me to do that. I usually watch a Mets game and a Yankees game each night and skip from one game to the other effortlessly. That would be an ordeal doing that on a streamer.
