Not everyone can get good home broadband .

I wish I could get tmobile or Verizon Wireless LTE/5G home broadband. I would kiss this POS docsis good bye in a heartbeat.

Some folks have outages all the ... time and we are told it's "maintenance " ...

Even in the heart of Norfolk VA folks choose Hughes Net over docsis ... its that bad ...

We need either #FTTH fiber broadband expanded for ALL and or NFL ST needs go continue to have an option on D*

Heck I'll boycot if they go to apple lol

I have T-Mobile 5G Home Internet. I live 75 miles from a major city (St. Louis). My internet speeds are pretty solid at 400 mbps down and 100 mbps up in this rural area. Plus it has unlimited data for $50.00 per month. T-Mobile 5G pretty much covers the entire continental USA.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is available in Norfolk, VA.

You can check availability at your specific address here: T-Mobile 5G Home Internet

They have a free 15 day trial if it is available at your specific address.

I hope it will still be an option for residential DirecTV , I know it won't exclusive... but I hope it will be ... streaming + DirecTV

So Amazon or what ever streaming thing and still a DirecTV option

Unless that changes this upcoming season I had NHL Center Ice on DIRECTV in 2021-2022. It was only $59 for the season. Cheapest it ever was.
Right and DirecTV had NHL games in 4K !

Avalanche, and select Blackhawks games i think

Yea thats crazy I'm in VA with MLB EI so don't exactly have that issue . I just have normal blackout isssue so if they playing Nats or Os I have to watch on MASN and listen to the "see u later "guy ...


But back to NFL on a small occasion the local station will change what game they are airing which messes up blackout rules. I think week one last year WVBT choose to air Eagles game instead of Colts game and it was all screwed up . Colts were blackout ... So yea local blackouts can be a mess with all sports

Wow is xfinity dvr that bad lol

And this year I have noticed more phillies games on D* via the 700s.. I wonder if your able to view?

See if your able to view tonight's game on 733

I know in the past D* didn't carry many phillies feed games . And I'm not a 76ers fan so didn't play close attention but I think they had the 76ers feed available . I know we don't have a dedicated channel for NBC SN Philly but have noticed more and more games

Right but the 700s are usually just mirrors of the 600s (RSN) so what I'm suggesting is see if u can view the game tonight since u live in Philly market .

Its like a duplicate channel to group all the MLB EI/NBA LP channels together

IIRC even when I didn't have MLB EI or NBA LP the mirror of (my local RSNs) NBC SN Washington or MASN i was able to view ... but I could be mistaken

For those who have subscribed to (or have been gifted) NFL Season Ticket, it doesn't matter how DISH pricing compares if you don't have the NFLST option.

That will change in the 2023-4 season.
Agree no NFL ST, no 4K sports (beyond fox events) and no RSNs on dish or a lot of OTT providers

DirecTV is the true winner for sports fans

Yew I'm definitely NOT a fan of all this a la cart streaming crap

We pay enough for TV all these shows should be included

Nfl for example the prime games should be included in the new NFL ST , we shouldn't have to pay for NFL ST, and then Amazon prime for TNF

Thats one thing I hate about MLB now , not only do u need MLB EI/.TV, but u need apple crap for Friday nights , peacock for Sunday 12 noon games and yankees fans would need Amazon prime as well ... the premium sports package should include ALL games . We are paying a premium for the season, should include all games !

I know NFL is slightly different since it deals with local channels but still TNF should be included .

Hard pass on streaming for me. I’ve tried it and didn’t like it. Mark my words the folks that have good internet connections you will be fine but there will be issues for some who want NFL Sunday Ticket who don’t have fast wi-fi yet. I just hope DIRECTV retains NFL Sunday Ticket in some sort of fashion. It might not be exclusive anymore after 2022, but hopefully they keep it & open it up to other platforms so the people who don’t stream can still see their out of market games.
Same not a fan of streaming stuff
