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?

Kind of surprised NFL Network doesn't have a Watch NFL option like ESPN does.

I agree. they do exactly what your talking about using gamepass for everyone outside of the US and mexico. I would gladly pay for an nfl network app where I could watch online and not have to pay for all the other bullshit that comes with a tv channel tier

Users outside the USA can watch NFL games online, streaming in HD quality. ... NFL Game Pass is not available in the United States and Mexico,*

so basically, game pass is all the games AND NFL Network I take it? That is something I wouldn't be interested in. I would just like access to NFL Network alone.

Realistically it's never going to happen here...at least not anytime in the near future. Why because that would be anti to the entire business model of cable/subscription TV.

Hell they created the NFL network in 2003 and it was always on the 'extra' tier that you have to manually add to cable. That's not where you make money in cable TV. So in 2006 they wised up and added 8 games exclusive to the NFL network(which ironically started with the Chiefs beating the Broncos on Thanksgiving). As of 2012 it's now 13 exclusive games...

By putting exclusive games on NFL network more people signed up for it. When they hit enough subscribers they got the leverage to push for the NFL network to be added to the basic Cable TV tier like ESPN etc. That's where the real money is because then your mom, you sister and your grandmother all pay for NFL network even if they never watch a game.

If they were to offer the games online, it would reduce the subscriber count and decrease the power they have to get the NFL network on the basic cable tier which is where you make the real money. Because everyone pays for those channels whether you watch them or not...

This is why the stories you read about cable/satellite company Y dropping say CBS/NBC/ABC/etc is often just bullshit. Sometimes it's because they can't negotiate the retransmission rates but other times it's because say CBS want the cable company to add their new channel say 'The Masturbation Network' to the cable company's basic tier and if the cable company refuses they don't get to broadcast CBS.

But they should offer an online option for free to subscribers like ESPN, TNT and the like do. That is where the cable pay pass comes in.

They probably will at some point when all the major cable/satellite companies have the NFL network on the same tier as ESPN but it's not there yet. Time warner cable didn't even carry NFL network until last year.

Remember internet watching won't get counted as viewers from the cable companies point of view. It doesn't go through the cable companies system, it just uses login credentials to verify you already are a subscriber(which of course opens it to fraud like people sharing login information).

Can anyone explain how a slingbox would work in this situation? Like if my best buddy had Sunday Ticket and wanted to be able to watch those games when he came over to my house?

I just called by DTV and signed up for some promotional HBO/Showtime/Cinemax. Asked about Sunday Ticket and she transferred me. Next guy said let me transfer you. Last lady was nice but after putting me on hold said she couldn't do anything about a discounted price. I explained that I wasn't happy in May when I had to pay $180 to move the service only a year after I had joined but I did because I have enjoyed the service. She still said there was nothing they could offer me other than full price Sunday Ticket.

****ers.
