Direct TV NFL Sunday Ticket: Is the Sunday Ticket Worth It?

Aug 21, 2007
I nearly came unglued one Sunday morning when my wife announced that we needed to leave by 10:00. When I asked her where she thought "we" were going, she looked at me like I'd lost my mind. "To Aunt Sarah's. I told you today's her 75th birthday!" Then she proceeded to remind me of exactly when, two weeks ago, she supposedly warned me that this day was coming up. Maybe she did. It's hard to say when I'm only actively listening about 12% of the time.

Long story short, Pam got her way, (big surprise) and I spent that Sunday eating dry cake and trying to look interested in old black and white photos while the Green Bay Packers played a game, and I missed it. Pam says I sulked on the way home, but that's not true. I just had a lot on my mind.

Actually, I was thinking about Direct TV NFL Sunday Ticket and wondering why, since we've been Direct TV subscribers for quite a while, I didn't already have it. A guy at work had given me a web address a few weeks ago to order the Ticket -- where he got a great deal -- but I hadn't gotten around to it. Tonight, I decided, it was time. When we got home and Pam went to take a shower, I got online and took the plunge.

I already knew I wanted the NFL Sunday Ticket, but I didn't realize what all that included. I knew it meant over 200 games per season, but I didn't know it meant game highlights automatically downloaded to my Direct TV DVR every Monday morning! With the Sunday Ticket, I can track up to 9 of my favorite players, see their real-time stats and follow their performance all day long.

They have one channel called Sunday Snap that shows a comprehensive list of stats and scores from around the league, and another one called NFL Network that's on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are even more features, but the one that caught my eye was the Superfan add-on.

For a few dollars more a month I can see over 180 games in High Def, I can watch up to 8 games on one screen, and the best part of all is the new addition of Supercast. It sends live streams of every game the NFL Sunday Ticket offers, plus the Red Zone Channel, directly to my computer! Pretty cool, huh?

The trick is to find a site that makes ordering quick and simple, and saves you some money. I knew I had nailed both of those requirements when I found a great site that gave me four months of Direct TV programming for free, plus some cash back on my order, and I was all ready to click the "order now" button when Pam came out of the bathroom and leaned over my shoulder. She whispered in my ear. "Nice site, huh? That's the one I used when I ordered the NFL Sunday Ticket for you 3 days ago. I told you about it over dinner Thursday. Weren't you paying attention?" I smiled and gave her a hug. I guess I need to work on increasing my active listening time.
