I didn't even threaten last year, just called in, asked nicely if there was anything they could do for me, being as I'm a 5yr directv sub, they gave me 120.00 off the price, plus To-Go free, I was happy.
I already started paying for 2012 back after the super bowl when they had the 299.95 package up. I've done the call in for discounts the past 2 seasons, decided this year I'll just pay the 299.95, I dont feel like calling in.
I get the ticket because I hate worrying about whether or not I will find a good feed free online, and a bunch of times they have been crap. I never am able to get one that stays still for more than 5 mins, so I've said screw it, just go with the ticket, plus DirecTV is much better than Cable, hated my cable provider(Time Warner), they are cheap and have terrible service and equipment. Will be 6th season having the ticket, and have never been dissapointed with it. Also never have an issue with signal or losing feeds, always on, even in bad rain and snow.
