Sunday Ticket is dead. Long live Sunday Ticket


Recommended Posts

Looks like Sunday Ticket on DirecTV is dead. New home: ESPN+

More info to come.   Congrats to Disney for this one -- they found a way to get money from the cord-cutters who stopped paying the cable ESPN fee.

Eh....I'll still stream it. fug 'em.

This makes streaming even MORE attractive IMO since ESPN+ is a streaming service anyway.

Oh, and just as an FYI, the illegal streams have been more reliable than the actual UFC PPVs on ESPN+ and NFL Sunday Ticket will create a LOT more traffic than UFC PPVs. I predict this will be a complete poo show.

NFL needs to just offer a Sunday Ticket style package themselves. This is going to explode illegal streaming even more if there isn’t a reliable package to purchase that has all the games

I wish they would come up with a plan to just purchase an individual teams game package.  I just moved to Texas from Charlotte and it would be awesome to just be able to buy all the Panthers games.

That being said, im definitely going to subscribe to this next year.

This is for the 2023 season, by the way.

ESPN+ is currently $60/year... or different monthly packages that could range up to $20/month (your mileage may vary). No word on whether football would be an extra price or not.

Thursday night games go to Amazon Prime for out-of-market games; stay on local TV if they're local teams per usual process.

No way it'll be included for $60/year. It'll be an additional fee. Just like UFC PPVs are an additional fee on top of the $60/year. That was a brilliant move by the UFC putting their content behind a double paywall.

They have the technology to do it. And knowing how to handle/recover from the Mandalorian/WandaVision crashes on the Disney+ side of the fence just helps them build a better streaming network. 

It may not be that much extra $. ESPN+ can come as a package deal with Hulu and Disney+, so some folks may already have it (and may not even know it). 

And if Disney can figure out the tech to do it.... some people may balk at paying an extra $300 for all the games... but there'll be a fair number who'll say $100 just for a single team's games? That's the hook.

ESPN could already have had the market cornered on streaming had they seen the writing on the wall years ago with satellite and cable subscriptions dropping. I mean....YEARS ago. 

I would have been an ESPN streaming subscriber back in the day. Now.....f*ck 'em. Don't need 'em. Not interested in paying Disney money, either.

The last 3 seasons Ive put RedZone on the TV and found streams for the Panthers games when they were not one of the national games.

No way Im going back to paying to watch the games until they find a way to stop the streamers.

I am glad to hear DirecTV is out though

I honestly have no idea who is buying MMA and boxing PPVs these days. If you have any ability to search the internet and 30 seconds...
