For me, I dont mind paying for something like this. Id rather not, but understand that they do not HAVE to give me deals. It pays to make that phone call and just ask.
I called this afternoon, explained that money is tight and I just dont know how I can swing the Sunday ticket, but this is the main reason I have direct tv. The lady I spoke with took 30 bucks a month off of my monthly bill, took 10 bucks per payment off the Sunday Ticket, and added the redzone channel for 5.00 per month.
So bottom line, I got the Sunday Ticket + RZ channel for regular price - 5.00 per month.
I also got 30.00 credit to my monthly bill for one year.
I cant complain about that at all. They didnt have to give me anything. This is why I love Direct Tv. They treat you like you matter. Can you imagine if every company in America cared about keeping your business like Direct TV?
Edit to add - Sunday ticket is 199.99 per month this year with the Sunday ticket Xtra or whatever for 299.00
