Yeah, Sunday Ticket is really nice to have... I watched a lot more NFL games when I had it. I would skip around a lot or just do the 8 games on one screen. It you can afford it it's a must for any NFL fan. It was nice not having to watch blowouts or the same teams every week. AB, did you ever try calling and threatening to cancel or working out a deal? There are a lot of people out there who have called and got 3 months of stars or one of the movie channels for free. Some get like 10 off a month for 12 months, some got free Sunday Ticket all together. Some get half off of it... a few lucky ones got all three of those things. With you being a subscriber for that long and paying that much they should give you some sort of deal. It's kind of B.S. that they give the new customers deals left and right but the long time customers they don't really care about. If you haven't tried to work out a deal check the internet... a lot of people have been successful.
I have gotten a huge discount last 3 seasons(Including 2012).
Got like 120 off in 2010 and 2011 plus To-Go free, then now 1yr agreement got me it free, basic though, but still good deal. I give my login to my dad for the To-Go part as I did the 25 a month for 4 months for MAX upgrade.
Also got 90 in discounts for Starz, Sports and package(5 a month each for 6 months). So paid like 10 for ST total if you include Max upgrade.
I never threaten, just say what can be done for the ST, I do say Cancel at the prompt when calling there number, gets you to retentions department.
