I haven't had to pay full price for Sunday Ticket in some time, thanks mostly to this site. Prices are at the lowest in years, but that's not really true since you have to pay more if you want Red Zone and computer access.
I used the cancellation trick and got a $20 credit per month over the next 12 months in exchange for a one-year commitment. More than covers the cost of the basic service. (I'd have to fork over an extra $100 for mobile/RZC, but I'll probably wait until I know I'm traveling on a gameday to do that.
Also, an added flourish: I mentioned to the guy that my wife was cracking down on bills, and that I needed to be able to sell it to her. He asked "does she like movies?" I said, "yes she does." And they gave me three free months of Showtime, too.
I'm sure some will get more out of them, but I'm still amazed this works year after year.
Has anyone purchased the package and sucessfully gotten the RZC portion free? That's what I'll be shooting for, because not having RZC would be a bummer.
I'm thinking about complaing how they advertise it as lowering the cost of Sunday ticket, but the they didn't lower the cost, they only made it 2 seperate portions(I don't know if that's true, I don't know the cost last year, got it free for signing up).
Anyone got anything else? I'm not within 2 years of my contract, so if I threaten cancelling they'll laugh at me and tell me to pay them there 200 bucks a month.
For me, it's Jets when they are on (with Red Zone on another TV) and Red Zone when they are not. That blows if they take Red Zone away. I may call if that is indeed the case.
+1. On non home game Sundays, we usually find ourselves on the red zone. And then flip to the game in question. If they pull that, then I will lobby to get that add on or withdraw. I really don't use the full Sunday Ticket as much as I like to think I do. There's an illogical satisfaction just knowing it's there. We football fans are crazy.
but for me having RZ is like a Christmas Present every Sunday during the NFL seasons. Most weeks, I watch the Jets game and watch RZ for the other afternoon block and when the Jets are playing on Monday or Sunday or Thursday night, Sunday is pretty much all RZ for me unless one of our AFC East rivals is on the network broadcast and getting beaten
I have Cablevision...So I don't even get the NFL Channel.
My parents have Direct TV, so I order it from them, and then watch the Mobile from laptop at my place. My father loves the RZ Channel...I'll have to check what they are paying and call in for the discount again. Last three years, I paid 1/2 off, or nothing like last year...
I have Verizon so I have the NFL Redzone for $49.99 and I love it. Its much better then Sunday ticket redzone, much better editing. I have 2 TV's, 60' Samsung for the local broadcasts and one 32' for the redzone. Heaven.
