DirecTV Inc Complaint - 2010 NFL Sunday Ticket $299.94 for ?
Can anyone please tell me what has happened to the 2010 NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV? I have been purchasing the NFL Sunday Ticket for several years now and have maybe had one or two games blacked out over the years, but this year (2010), I have actually had to resort to cable to watch the games I want to see, and it doesn't seem to matter where these games are being played. I live in Michigan, so I can understand a blackout on a game from my state, but I'm getting blackouts on games that are playing from other states and it doesn't matter if it's 1:00 or 4:00 games. Whatever happened to "Watch any game from anywhere"? I pay $49.99 a month for 6 months to watch the game I want and have yet to see one game I wanted this season on DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket. Where I live, my neighbors and I can't believe we've had to resort to cable to see games that we are paying a large amount of money to watch through the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket and are not able to watch the games due to all these blackouts that aren't making any sense, again, I live in Michigan, why am I not able to watch games that are being played in Chicago, IL, Greenbay, WI, Minnesota, etc? I even thought well, maybe its because my home state's team is playing in one of these games, guess what, NOT. I don't know about anyone else, but I am tired of hearing "Blackout restrictions apply" and why now does that statement seem to apply to games that are being played outside of one's local area? I think its time that DirecTV goes to the negoticating table with the NFL and work out a better deal with this blackout issue. I also think that if enough DirecTV subscribers refused to purchase the NFL Sunday Ticket due to the fact of all the "blackouts" DirecTV would be forced to face this issue and do something about it, unless the monies lost due to the fact that the Sunday Ticket isn't such a hot item anymore just doesn't seem to matter to DirecTV and one would think that the NFL itself would want to improve this problem if for noother reason than the monies they would loose through their advertising on the Sunday Ticket games if less and less customers were purchasing the NFL Sunday Ticket. Whats your thought? Are you tired of paying $299.94 a season for games you may not be able to watch and probably are not being able to watch? Let's do something about this! Remember, the squeaky wheel gets the grease!
