    Just made my now annual call regarding the cost of NFL Ticket to DirecTV. Was supposed to be 6 payments of $53.99/pymt, knocked it down to $33.99/pymt for savings of $120. Also threw in sports package for $3.99/mo. for 3 months.

    They offered me that as well. I live out in the sticks so it does me little good.
    Called the regular DirecTV #, told the rep that as a long-time subscriber I wasn't happy about the NFLTicket prices, & she made the offer. No haggling at all.

    Call in and tell them it's too expensive and you want to cancel. Good things can happen. Check out the threads about this at dbstalk.com.

    I didn't get NFL Sunday ticket, but I did get the red zone channel for free. :D

    I did the same thing a month ago. :) The extra sports package (FSN/CSN) came free though...I think, I haven't really checked the bill.

    I do the same thing when I threaten to cancel my movie chanels...."wait, we have a deal for you!" I have saved so much money just calling DirectTV to complain about prices.

    From DirecTV? They told me I can only get Red Zone if I get Sunday Ticket. That was last year, so maybe it's changed.

    What u need to do is bring up the option of canceling your current ST and opting to resign up. I dont kno what all my roommate ended up with I kno the ST on the go thing he got free hes already got all the movie channels and that was another I think they gave him 3 months of free. He was talking to them calmly and just keeping that idea of starting from scratch or dropping it out of disgust that new DTV members are gettting the ST completly FREE!! It has made me tempted to activate a membership at another friends house jus b/c FREE every game even if only one season is so fkin epic. Granted he doesnt like NFL, he has grown to like Aussie Football.

    This is my second straight year of getting just the Red Zone Channel for free.

    I sent the email below to this email address:
    directvcustomercare@directv.com

    Edit to match your situation. They came back with "I'm sorry we can't because you need to have Sunday Ticket, yadda, yadda, yadda...". I then replied with "The only reason I'm with DirecTV is because of this channel. If I can't get it, I may have to reconsider my TV options". Two emails later, I was given the channel and saw it listed on my account at $0.00.

    I remain ultra-pissed off about the Red Zone situation. When I switched to DTV I specifically asked if I could get the Red Zone channel and was told yes. Of course that answer is correct, and nobody said "BUT you can only get it if you get Sunday Ticket." I fought with them last year, but they had me locked in so I guess nobody cared. I am getting ready to call them and fight with them again this week, they had damned well better let me have Red Zone only this year.

    And I don't even care if I get it for free. I'll happily pay for Red Zone, I just don't want to have to pay for Sunday Ticket too. I go in person or my friend's sports bar for all Charger games. I like to watch Red Zone the rest of the time.

    The TV market is so cut-throat and competitive, you can often bluff these people. NFL Sunday Ticket is free this year for new DirecTv subscribers. Luckily, I live in my favorite team's market so I can get to catch every game if not attend the game.
