Stop complaining about regioanal coverage. get the package.

I have had the package since 1998 I believe, but I will be the first to say the cost is high, and will go up next year again as prices will again go up.

Plus, with my son growing up, just not the whole day to sit and watch football anymore. That is until he takes enough interest in it...

Being on the 12th floor of a high rise apartment with no balcony, getting a dish might be a little tough. Luckily, there's a sports bar across the street with a comfy couch.

And I agree with the other guy. They should have a per team package or per game. KC has 4 or 5 national games as it is. If I'm going to pay $15 per game for the rest of the season, I'd rather get a burger and some beer while I'm at it.

Sheesh, this is a cranky thread.

I have never bitched about regionaly broadcasting, but heres why I dont have Sunday Ticket

1) I live in a townhome and there are rules about any sort of dishes being put up. Im simply not ALLOWED to

2) The cost isnt $159. That is the cost if you are already paying for direct TV and already have all the equipment. Its a joke for you to say its 'only' $159.

3) You say 'why not get some guys together to help pay for it.' Well quite frankly, how do you decide what games you are going to watch? You cant watch all the games at the same time, and generally, not everybody wants to watch the same games.



As for the dorms comment

Some places force you to stay in dorms your freshman and sometimes your sophomore year. There simply is not enough student housing around where you can just not live in the dorms. Secondly, it really is a good way to meet people your freshmen year ;-7

I tell ya, I thought dorm living was pretty good. Never had to cook. Had a ton of people real close, easy to make friends simply due to proximity, and the girls! Haha.

This remains the reason I don't have it. If it were as easy as slapping down $150 I'd probably have done it by now. But you have to get direct TV, buy the dish, get it installed, etc. It ends up being a LOT more than $150...

Ah, the NFL Ticket....there's nothing like it. They could charge 300 and I would pay. It beats the heck out of the trash games you get sometimes on cable broadcast.

Dorm life is the best time you would never want to go through again. The pizza, cards, and occasional chick was lots of fun.

Ah and one less thing i miss from the dorm is the 'taco bar'....

The Directv is definitely an investment up front. I have loved being able to watch the games that I wouldn't normally get. College and pro football, and college basketball..

If you have the means, I would highly recommend it. I think Ferris Bueller said something along those lines.

It is not as big an investment as some will lead you to believe. I received all the equipment ,and the installation for free provided I Paid for the N.F.L. package. This was 5 years ago, but they nearly give it away if you shop around. I think for any fantasy football fan or football fan in general it is well worth the investment. It can be real exciting watching your players go off, but I will admit watching more games can be frustrating when you see the could have been plays, or the dropped balls in the end zone you would not have known occured if you did not have the package.

P.S. I dont work for direct tv
