Currently a Comcast customer, my brother-in-law was interested in switching over to D* when he purchased his HD a few months ago. When he called Comcast to cancel, the CSR there said that Comcast will have the Ticket available for their customers in 2007, and offered him the NFL Network for free to keep him.

ST was the one reason that my brother-in-law was going to change providers, as he has a package deal with internet as well, but it got me thinking. Does D* lose their exclusivity with the NFL next year, or is that a CSR that should get a bonus by pitching lies to a customer to save a cancel?

D* has the NFL exclusive thru 2010, I don't see anything changing that.
He was lied to.

It sounds like they offered him the NFL network, not NFL sunday ticket. The sunday ticket is where you get all the NFL games and I think that is what he is wanting. As was said before Directv has it until 2010. It sounds like they are trying to trick him into thinking that he will get all the NFL games and he won't with the NFL network.

I agree as I thought that the CSR was lying to my brother-in-law, I just wanted to confirm it here on the board.

Funny..

Must be a memo or something that got sent around to Comcast CSR/Installers

As just about a month ago, we had a nearly identical thread/post...

As the other said, throught the 2010 season it is a DirecTV exclusive.
And you can probably bet your sweet potatos, DirecTV is going to pay through the nose to lock it up for another 5-7 years after that.

Especially if they get their hands on the Extra Innings exclusive.

NASCAR HOT PASS ONLY ON DIRECTV

SETANTA SPORTS ONLY ON DIRECTV

IT NO WONDER DIRECTV IS THE UNDISPUTED SPORTS LEADER IN TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:) :)

DIRECTV could offer MLB mix channels just like they do with NFL, NCAA, and how the MLB does with there online service

And DTv will get it, too. The NFL is not exactly about consumers. Exclusive to Sirius, EA (for games), Sprint (for mobile), and of course, DTv forever.

They love exclusive contracts. Surprised NFL Network isn't only on DTv ... :lol:

Isn't that the same trick that Dish Network tried a few months back? I still see that commercial every now and then.

Charter tried that with me just last year. I have their cable internet only and they try to upsell me the TV package all the time. I said flatly "do you have Sunday Ticket? Give me a call only when you do." Of course she says "oh, we'll have that soon, probably next year." I of course inform her of the exclusive until 2010 and told her to not call me again. Of course they try the same thing every year.

Cable and Dish try it all the time and of course they get people who don't know any better.
