DirecTV Sunday Ticket

16 posts in this topic

has anyone used sunday ticket before?

currently, i am a comcast subscriber, and mississippi resident [i know, i know].

directv offers sunday ticket on the ps3 for $200 i think. but i also heard that first time subscribers get one season free. would it be cheaper to pay for 6 months or so, purchase just the ps3 version so as to not have to go through the hassle of switching providers, or just go up to the bar every sunday?

to those who are current subscribers, how is directv overall?

I was thinking of going the PS3 route. Under 200? First season free? Really?

I was an idiot and sold my PS3 forgetting that you could get Sunday Ticket on there.

I go to college up in Virginia and the main channels just pick up Redskins games.

I guess I will be going to Buffalo Wild Wings every Sunday instead.

Love Directv, had it for years, had Sunday ticket for years...every game, every Sunday...of course there are 3 games a week now that are not on Sunday ticket...it has the NFL channel too of course.

Only issue is during heavy t-storms, picture will faded until the cell passes, usually 10 mins or so; but, I suppose one could say the tv should not be on during heavy t-storms anyway.

Sports bars are great but DUIs aren't and that's a chance I don't take anymore...and seems like I always drink wen the Panthers play :) either in celebration, anxiety, or sorrow.

While I"m watching the best part of the Olympics on either 603 (NBC Sports Channel) or the BBC, my cable friends are stuck with either NBC or bravo.

It is $199. And yes, it is 100% worth it. At least if you are out of market. At a bar, you usually don't have audio.

It's 300 if you want to watch on PC, tablet or phone. And for the Red Zone Channel.

How in the hell can anyone who is not tv market of their favorite team, not have NFL sunday ticket?

I'd pay twice what they charge if I had to to watch the panthers every week.If your a serious fan indulge yourself and don't look back. Should be an absolute no brainer if your not in the Carolina's.

I just pulled the trigger, so I can get NFL Network, Sunday Ticket Max and 3 months of movie channels 3. Its gonna cost me about 10 more bucks a month but will be worth it during the season anyway..after that I may regret it.

I even live in Charlotte so I get the games anyway and bought season tickets as this year as well. Just pissed about missing NFL network from time warner. I long for the day when you can pay per channel that you pick. Seems like I only watch the local's, espns's, history and occasionally Investigation Discovery just so I can brush up on my skills of how to get away with a crime should the need ever arise.

    • A pro? Cool. Just quit crying in the panthers main forum about the quality of threads and talking about how you're going to leave. That's not what a troll does. If you're going to troll troll right
    • Naziism wasn't really socialism and in fact one of their first orders of business was to eradicate Communists from Germany. Also, trying to meld Nazis with socialists is disingenuous because the issue with Nazi Germany wasn't their economy which actually recovered quite well under Nazi rule, but the first part of their name.  "Nationalist".  That is what drove them to war crimes and mass murder of Jews and immigrants. And the party that currently most mirrors a form of nationalism close to Naziism is the Republican Party.  With heavy anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, criminalization of minorities, etc etc rhetoric.  
    • Looked at both your posts, they didn't improve so I will pick this one. Cherrypicking a stat or six game period that was decent hardly justifies that we were middle of the pack. First of all this discussion was about cornerbacks not defensive ends so your run defense and sack stats means little. Newsflash. We were top 10 in rush defense because teams didn't have to run on us when they could pick up chunks in passing the ball. We were 26th in number of rushing attempts by the opponent meaning 25 teams had the opponent rush more times than we did.  And we were second in sacks for the same reason. Teams passed all the time on us giving us many more times to sack them.  We had the 6th most passes thrown against us. We were second in sacks behind Arizona- 47   to their 48. But they had 547 attempts against them versus our 612. So we had a sack for every 13 attempts. Arizona had a sack every 11 attempts. Even Buffalo which ranked 9th in sacks with 39 had the same one sack for every 13 passes attempted as we did. Teams completed passes almost 70% of the time which also ranks us 29th. We were tied for 22nd with 4 other teams in giving up 7.5 yards per pass play.  We were 21st in yards surrendered in total defense. And in points surrendered we were 26th not 15th. That was offense not defense that was 15th. With all the offense and Shula bashing I can understand why you might think the defense was better than the offense but it was the other way around. TL,DR Wrong we are one of the worse defenses in the league no matter how you look at it.
