If you want LOTS of info on the recent blackout changes go to DBSTalk.com. There are at least two threads there discussing it. It is WAY too lengthy to cut and paste. It is in the Direct TV General discussion forum.

Doesn't DirecTV lose it's exclusive rights to the NFL in a year or two? When that happens they will get slaughtered....I've been their ideal customer ever since the NFL Season ticket came out 8 or so years ago. I buy their premium package and NFL, College Football and MLB every year...I have been suckered into the NBA package several years only due to fantasy leagues that I use as a crutch between football seasons. I also pay for mutiple receivers and local channels along with buying several movies. As soon as cable has rights to the NFL package I will be out the door. I'm closing on a new house next week and there will be 5 to 6 rooms that I would like to have TV coverage but due to the gouge DirecTV puts on you per receiver there is no way I will do more than 3.

I just got DirectTV and I couldn't be happier. I understand why people would be mad though if they can't get local channels and they miss some games and I think that is BS. It annoyed me that I had to go to Channel 4 & 5 to catch some games it is just easier to move up and down the 700's but that is being petty. I still saw all of the games. So far so good.

No. 2008.

And, actually, to say they'll lose them then is making assumptions. They didn't lose exclusive rights in 2002 when the last agreement expired. They just negotiated a new agreement. Unless DirecTV is already on the verge of going under, I'd expect them to at least attempt to continue exclusive rights.

Thanks! I would venture to guess that when the contract comes up again DirectTV will offer a huge amount of money to keep it. I can't imagine DirectTV losing ST because ST is their primary business IMO.

We haven't heard the last of this BS. This type of thing goes on all the time especially when the gubment gets involved. Rupert Murdoch just bought Directv from General Motors. They have around 13 million customers with an average monthly bill around $60. That is some serious cash flow. Lamar Hunt is in more danger of going under I would think.

Not trying to suggest in any way that I think DirecTV will be going under anytime soon. Just think that's probably the only scenario where they let exclusive rights to ST go w/out a fight.

The only thing I could think of is if this blackout BS seriously guts it where it isn't worth the money for an exclusive anymore. I would think there would be talks going on between DTV and the NFL about this changing the rules in the middle of the contract.

Directv's contract to show NFL Sunday Ticket games extends through 2007, but exclusivity expires after 2005.

http://www.tvbarn.com/ticker/archives/007429.html

Don't look for the exclusivity rights to be renewed either:

Taken from http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/news/7834097.htm?1c

"NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV is now exclusive," [NFL spokesman Greg]Aiello said. "But our exclusivity ends in a couple of years, and then we can take that to the cable systems. In other words, at some point, NFL Sunday Ticket may be available to a much wider audience." - 1/30/04
