DirectTV / Sunday Ticket - December 5, 2011, 05:43 PM

Looks like I procrastinated too long on switching from Comcast to DirecTV.

Anyone got the hook up? I'm trying to sign up now and I need the NFL Sunday Ticket... it's the main reason I want to switch.

I think the promo ended a few weeks ago.... anyone know of a way to get this thrown in. The new "Whole Home DVR" promo isn't really a big deal for me so I'd pass up on it if I could get the Sunday Ticket thrown in.

They should be able to throw it in since it is so late in the season. If you call them a few times one of the reps should give in. DirecTV loves giving stuff away for free/cheap. I've had Sunday Ticket for the past 3 years and never paid for it.

I was just thinking about that since I have FiOS and signed up for a 2 year contract to get a $300 gift card. Free money since I'm not planning on switching anyway. Comcast? Get real. I work for Comcast and can get it free and I still choose to pay for FiOS. But back on topic - I have the NFL Red Zone and it is as close to the Sunday Ticket as you can get. Not sure if it was because last Sunday was my first watching it but I actually like it. Not as much switching between games as I thought. They stayed with the good games, showed a few highlights of the others when they were in scoring position and went back to the good ones. I really enjoyed it - until I ran out of beer. Then it was just ok, lol.

Like RD said, it is so late in the season, you should get it for free. I would call DirecTV back and ask again.

I've called DirecTV twice now and both times they're not giving up the Sunday Ticket promo. They want to charge me $200+ for the remaining 4 months. Not interested... and I'm not gonna waste any more time on it.

I'm remembering just how bad I hate calling Customer Service lines of big companies.

RCFiddy... PM incoming about NFL Red Zone.
