    That is kind of a big deal....

    I might look at that when my free HBO expires next year... of course I'll probably ditch Charter at the end of the summer and get Direct TV.

    I want the Sunday Ticket.

    I NEED the Sunday Ticket

    Keeps my restaurant and bar tabs down on Sundays.

    Wait

    Read the fine print.

    This isn't HBO Go

    It is only access to old shows and not HBO's current shows or movies. No GoT

    I'll pass. Turns out illegal download is still the way to go

    Here you get Sunday Ticket free when you sign up. You get mobile and internet access too.

    We switched to DTV because of Sunday Ticket, but the only cable option in our area is Comcast. **** Comcast. I can't see us changing back ever unless price becomes a serious issue.

    Plus, DTV hates Comcast. If you threaten to switch they'll give you something for free.

    I talked to the rep at Costco the other day and that is what he offered me.

    I told him I am currently a Charter customer and am only considering the switch because of the Sunday Ticket.

    You have to play them against each other. If I can get free HBO for 6 months or a year out of Direct TV the game is on.


    Tell them what you pay now and what you want, emphasize that Sunday Ticket is your biggest draw. They will play.

    Sunday Ticket is great, especially during the bye week.

    So for less than the price of a cheap stadium hot dog people are dumping Netflix?
    The Bava movies alone are worth that fee..
