Hello to all. Can you still get Sunday ticket through playstation. And do you need a dish. I am in a area where a dish will not work. Thanks for your help
Thanks for the Info. Not to familiar wit the gaming system. What is better the xbox or ps3. Also where does the fee come from The internet? Ana is there usually any interference when watching games. Thanks
fyi, that Amazon deal will not work on a PS3 -- it's good for computer, tablet, or a mobile device... If you're already a DirecTV customer it's pretty much a non-deal. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with DTV and the putz had no idea what I was talking about. I literally had to send him a link to the amazon deal and he still couldn't figure out how it works.
I plan on calling or emailing Amazon at some point but there's a lot of fine print.
I called last week and got free Sunday ticket if I extend my contract for another year. The funny thing was that I added the whole home and a second tv in January, which apparently already extended my contract until January 2015. My new contract end is... Still January 2015. The rep assured me that it wouldn't actually extend the contract.
On top of that, I got show time free for 3 months, although that is a pretty standard promotion that I probably could have gotten anytime. I just always wait for Dexter season to ask for it. ;)
Also I got $10 off for 12 months, but again I think that is a standard promotion for people who complain about the $10 hd fee.
I probably didn't get max, bit I figure once the season starts, I'll call and complain about how I was told that was included and be good to go. I have another promotion expiring in July and the rep told me that if I call in August after it drops off my statement, another rep would probably be able to give me a similar promotion. Overall, I got lucky with an awesome rep the first time I called.
Did this today...figured I'd chime in. Wife's been bugging me to switch to Hulu Plus over Direct, so I figured I'd use that in my pitch. I called up, asked for the amount needed to break my agreement, and rightly said that we were thinking about quitting and switching to Hulu plus (we were)...I got lucky and got a really nice representative who threw 30 bucks in credits at me, starz/showtime and...NFL ST for free! ST agreement came with one year commitment, which runs concurrently with my current contract (I verified this about 5 times, LOL). So, I didn't tack on any additional time, and I'll be a free agent by this time next year.
Once again, I'll say the key is to a) get lucky in getting a nice rep and b) be polite but firm. Just keep trying. DTV will almost always take care of you.
So I just called to "cancel" NFL Sunday ticket. I received an automatic renewal notice in the mail from DirecTV.
I live in Jets West (L.A.) so I was asked who I followed, told her the Jets, got a little speech about being able to see 14 additional games on Sunday with DirecTV etc. Not 100% true if there is a game on Thursday, and NBC Sunday night and Monday night ESPN it's a max of 13 and there are the regular terrestial channels in L.A. with no blackouts so it's more 10-11 extra on DirecTV but I'm not going to argue that when I want discounts.
Here's what I got:
Lasts year price of $179.94 for Sunday ticket over 6 months ($29.99 per month).
Down from a listed price on the letter of $224.95 ($37.49 x 6 months)
$10 discount for 12 months, effectively getting the Receiver free got a year.
Not the greatest deal I have ever gotten, did not want to cancel NFL ticket or DirecTV but I've paid $179 for two straight years so its ok.
Good luck to everyone else.
Called to attempt to cancel to consider move to Verizon Fios.
$15 off for next 15 mos
$10 off Sports package for 6 mos
Free HD for next year
Free ST with Max
Ugh. So I had lined up free NFLST due to moving, but the trees around our new house apparently make it impossible to get a dish set up. So after eight year of Sunday Ticket, I'm SOOL.
Any good suggestions on how to stream Jets games without DTV? (I live in the Chicago area.)
Seems like many of you guys have more luck than I do. I've been a DirecTV customer since 1998-99 or so, and currently pay for 4 HD boxes, including 2 of them being HD-DVRs. I get NFL Sunday Ticket and NBA League Pass, and have been doing so every year since 1998-99. If I call and complain, they'll give me a free month of HBO (Big whoop since the Sopranos went off it $ux @$$) if I complain, and offer something new, but as soon as I say yes, they charge me anyways. Seems as if you guys get good deals and I get screwed. And I'm a LOONNG time customer. Also, if I want to cancel, they often can't wait to cancel me... I think because I am grandfathered into some excellent basic deals and if they cancel me they can get me for more or something if I wanted them again.
My renewal was at $300 (6 payments at $49.99). I called to cancel and she lowered the 6 payments to $29.99 and gave me the "Max" upgards for free. Not bad, but very easy to do.
I currently have DTV with two HD DVR boxes (HR20-100), and have had ST the past few years.
I am thinking of upgrading to the new Genie system. Because just like on the commercials, we are often running out of disk space - or have three shows to record (almost always at 9-11PM Sunday night!).
I also need to get ST since I am in Florida. It looks like "LIST" price is $225 or 5*$45.
I wonder the best strategy to get the best deal while getting both of these deals accomplished. Thoughts?
If you are not on contract, you might try going direct to retention and tell them you want to cancel because of the DVR storage issue and try to have them give you a Genie to retain you, then on a later call negotiate a discount on the directv
I didn't have last year ( I did but got it free). So I asked when my
contract expired and was told I was under no contract
at this time so I said great cause I was thinking of
switching since I wasn't happy with the DVR. She offered
the Genie system for three TVs with no charge for the equipment but
additional $3 per month charge. I then asked about ST and was quoted
$37.49/month for 6 months. Told her I'd think about it and call back.
Anyone have the Genie? I'm thinking I can do much better when I call back to
