At a time everything relating to the NFL seems to be getting more and more expensive, one fairly significant aspect of the fan experience is getting cheaper.
According to Bloomberg.com, via SportsBusiness Daily, DirecTV will cut the price of its Sunday Ticket feature by more than 40 percent, to $199.95.
Also, the service once again will be provided free for one season to new subscribers.
Since 1994, Sunday Ticket has held exclusive rights to out-of-market games, making it an indispensable tool for anyone who follows a team that doesn’t have a local connection.
I don't have much more time to wait . . . please
I remember a few years ago when the Browns had a Thursday night game against the Steelers,
(not the one they won) we had over 60 people come in because you had to have the Direct TV
just to watch the game. The town of 12,00 people (Urbana, Ohio) was pretty much blacked out due to a storm
so we were one of the few areas that still had electricty. They are just about ready to kick off when
the 40 MPH winds knocks our Dish the wrong direction on the roof.
One thing about Art Modell's Browns.....We never had to worry in central Ohio who the network was going to show when the Browns game conflicted with the Bengals game....They would ALWAYS show the Browns. It was never even a question...
Unfortunately the same can not be said for Mr. Lerner's Browns...
the Browns were always on the tube . it was never a question . i liked it better when NBC had the weekly games and not cBS . Lima is a Browns town so TV 35 always had the Browns on . TV 22 out of Dayton had the Bengals on so no conflict .
now i am stuck with TV10 Cowlumbus & TV 7 Dayton which is in Bengal territory . all i can hope for is the Bungels and there fair weather fans stay away so the home games are blacked out then i get the Browns on TV 7 .
if the Browns play as ugly as they did last season on offense i might be better off not seeing that embarassing disorganised heartless mess .
I think techmology hurt the sports bars more than anything.True...Who wants to go to a bar and watch a 50" flat screen with 80 strangers and your small table of 2-3 friends while spending $3.00 per beer, when you can have 6-10 friends over to watch that same size flat screen in your living room and have any kind of beer you could imagine purchased right at your local grocery...
These are days of home entertainment, which really is bad for local business. What bar can you spend half time playing a quick game of Madden on the PS3?
