NFL Ticket

 I went to them last year with a 2-year, price-locked Comcast offer and asked if they could be competitive or I would leave. Stupid wench never even offered to transfer me to a retention specialist so I walked. I've gotten scads of offers from them since, but have another year at my current rates to go and Comcast's RedZone channel is pretty good. 

Recently moved into a new house. Bundled AT&T phone, cellular, internet, DirecTV. Took 12 calls and 8 different tech visits just to get the internet working. Took 2 tech visits and three hours of calls to get DTV working. Still trying to get AT&T to bundle everything onto one bill (nightmare). 

End result is I have the Ticket no charge for two years and a long list of other credits. I'm still not sure if it was worth the 45 days of waiting for AT&T to get their **** together. Let's just say there are still a lot of merger kinks that DTV and AT&T need to work through. 

Called back in April to cancel the ticket as no longer really need since moving back from Virginia (can cross the border to the In laws and watch now).  Said they'd take care of it....well got my bill Monday and was charged. 

So I called Monday night, got a standard apology and asked why I no longer wanted it.  Told them that I no longer needed it, thinking okay here comes a deal potentially as they messed up with the extra charge on the bill.  NOPE, got offered free HBO, told them the only thing I'd accept was free Ticket.  Was told they couldn't do it.

I noped out a few years ago after they tried to force me into buying a base package after being with them for 15 years on the same setup (just nfl, nhl, and the sports channels) . They are relentless. I still get mail offers from them twice a month. Pisses me off every time I see them. I'll never do business with DirecTV again.

Good to me also.....will be calling/cancelling in a couple of weeks.  I am hoping the same charade as usual applies.  I cancel, they refer me to the specialist, we chat, he/she offers little, I hold firm, he/she eventually capitulates, I get it for less than half price as always.   Same for Sirius Radio.

I contacted Sunday NFL Ticket Sunday night.  I was dealing with a young woman who after my  remarks/complaints was willing to offer only one "deal". I've always discussed "Ticket" with men before Sunday. And was happy with the results...not so much this time. She reduced Sunday Ticket Max from $62.99 to $45.00 for 6 months. I took the offer. Saved $107.94 in cost plus $7,55 in tax, total saved $115.49.  Might have done better if I cancelled & called back later,maybe not.
