You're underestimating what's available online these days.
I got the Madden/NFL Online package deal...found it on SD actually...and that online NFL component was essentially the same thing people get on TV. Choppy, yes. But it's still fairly new. I could switch from game to game, on the fly. There was a tracker that showed the situation of the other games.
Also, paying for the FULL online component offers the ability to watch replays, and select from which camera. It is EVER expanding, and as WWE taught us...it is truly the way to go. The NFL won't have to cater to the Network for the dollars, they can get the advertising themselves, and cut the COMCAST, DTV, Dish middlemen... all those leeches can go away.
You're just making a point on NFL ST, there's much more I offered in my post, such as:
- perfect HD for NFL non-ST games (Thursday nights and Monday nights are not available on ST)
- non-Regional sports channels (e.g. I live in Colorado but want MSG channel)
- European soccer, NHL (NBC SportChannel), B1G Ntwk, NBAtv, NFL Ntwk, MLB Ntwk, Golf Channel, etc.
I'm not paying DTV a premium because I don't like slick deals! I'm paying because it's the best price and/or the *only availability* for what I want. There really is no choice (for such sports viewers). Until there is a choice, price isn't the only variable (assuming quality is equal).
I followed up with DTV using the "script" earlier this week. Prior post was #2692.
They weren't willing to do any more than I outlined before. I did learn that on my earlier call the agent lied to me about what date I had paid through. She told me on the prior call that I was paid through a certain date and I decided to set the cancellation date there seeing as I'd already paid for it. Turns out I had only paid through the same numeric date of the prior month. Told the CSR that I felt they essentially bilked me out of an extra month. He ended up pro-rating it. I wasn't in the mood to fight over it.
Now I just have to decide whether to switch to something else or have my wife sign up through Costco with her information. Has anyone had any trouble with that lately?
