    Then tell the local affiliates to shove it. It's the NFL's choice not the local channels. Hopefully DirecTV loses its exclusivity so that people will leave in droves without the Pac 12 Network and have the option to switch to a better sports provider.


    Yes. Tell the single largest source of income (Fox, CBS and NBC) to shove it. Not a great business plan to alienate your biggest direct customers.

    from the the start the NFL made it clear they don't ST on multiple providers! because if everyone get the ST package the is worry no one will go the live games, so i think the ST will only be on DirecTV or Dish and not on cable every!

    I get a deal on Sunday Ticket every year so it has not been an issue over price. Sunday Ticket was free this year and last year and heavily discounted the the other years or free also.

    You seem to really dislike DirecTV so why not go to another provider that will make up happy? If you don't have DirecTV then why even post in the DirecTV forums because it seems to make you upset?

    Does anyone here remember when Sunday Ticket was actually on multiple providers. It's been a while, but it used to be.

    Even as an out of market Steelers fan, I choose NFL Redzone over NFL ST because of its low, low cost.

    You've tried to make this argument before, but it ignores everything that happens from 1:10 to 4:30.

    It's fine that some people prefer the focus that the RedZone provides, but some of us greatly prefer to be in control of which game we're watching.

    I've had ST since 2001, and I greatly prefer ST over RZ, so it really doesn't have anything to do with longevity.

    It's preference, people. There is no right or wrong answer about whether ST or RZ is "better."

    Also, money isn't an issue for me either because as a long-time subscriber I usually get a great deal on ST.

    I also don't understand the fixation on the Thursday games. Is the move toward weekly Thursday games really the straw that broke the camel's back? It's only one game lost to ST per week, and it's technically not every week.
    ST still has at least ten games a week, and sometimes as many as 16 (minus the variable number that one receives locally).

    +1

    And the same point could be made over the interminable DIRECTV versus Dish discussion...

    Sure it was. I had it for several years before I was ever a DirecTV subscriber.

    Yes. I might be off by a couple years, but Sunday Ticket wasn't exclusive to DirecTV from 1994 to around 2002ish.

    Here is what is on Wikipedia.

    NFL Sunday Ticket was launched in 1994 and was available on both DirecTV (which had launched just months earlier) and on C-band and Ku-band satellites, for which the receiving dishes are larger in size. Within several years, the service became available on various cable systems in Canada as well.
