2013 NFL Sunday Ticket + Alternatives
 
I know we had this thread last year, but things change every year so I thought I'd post this.

I've been with DirecTV for about 6 years now for the Ticket, but I can't afford it anymore. So I thought I'd see what things we learn as we negotiate, work around the Ticket, and find ways to watch our Chiefs games out of market as affordable as possible.

I know there's a promotion with Madden 25. What else is there this year?

I am in on this too. Just told them to cancel my Sunday Ticket because I couldn't afford it. They offered no discount what so ever and just cancelled it. I was hoping I would get a nice one who might offer $99 for the year or something?

I've found it so hit-and-miss with DTV. If you're under contract with them, they'll basically hang up on you. If you're coming due, they'll probably give it to you for free but nail you with 2 more years and high rates.

I'm done with it.

I've done NFL Rewind before, but you have to wait until the Sunday night game ends, which means I have to "stay dark" off of media until 9:00 or 9:30 my time and then I can watch it. That ain't easy.

I just go to firstrowsports and watch them for free. Since I don't live near KC its about the only way to get the games without paying $200 or w/e the hell sunday ticket is now.

I just hate the quality of those and the times they are choppy or cut out during critical parts of the game. I know, I know...it's free. But still!

Buy a slingbox and have someone in the KC area sling them to you.

I learned from here that you need to talk to the retention department.

Yep. I even had someone in the retention department once tell me that I should always ask for the retention department.

Probably won't be catching many games from that site this year.

If Madden does come with a discount card or something I would give it to one of you.
