If they merge then people with E* equipment will be able to order NFL Sunday Ticket ?
Yea, because NFL ST is programming, not hardware.
There are certain hardware/software things you wouldn't be able to get, but their so minor who cares.
If something like this were to happen I doubt too much of either subs service would change, atleast, for a while. It'd be a looonng transitioning period.
Both services offer VOD, Both offer HD content, PPV, Locals, etc etc etc.
The differences in what they offer are very minor.
The big step will be making a satellite dish (and receiver) that can pick up DirecTVs 99 through Dishes 129
