So I had suspended my DirecTV service earlier this year, but renewed it for the baseball playoffs (with enough time to watch the Pats MNF game). Now, while I'm a huge Pats fan, I decided not to renew Sunday Ticket since it looked like it was going to cost $350. And most of the Patriot games are on free TV these days. And I assumed that this week's showdown between the Pats & Cowboys would be on TV. But it isn't, because in LA they are showing the Chargers-Raiders. I called DirecTV to ask how much it would be for a day pass. They told me it would be $45 (ouch), but the worst thing is that wouldn't even include HD! Double-ouch. I asked what it would cost to get Sunday Ticket for the rest of the season, and the CSR said it would be $269+$99 for SuperFan, and the guy swore they didn't have any promotions. Of course, I know he was lying b/c the automated message was advertising FREE Superfan with Sunday Ticket purchase. Now, I'm not looking for any sympathy, but I would like to know what my best strategy is for getting the Pats game at the best price. I'd probably suck it up and pay the $45 if the game was in HD, but it isn't. And, while I'm planning to cancel DirecTV service again soon (well, I'm going to suspend it), if I could get Sunday Ticket for a better price (in the $150 range), I'd keep DirecTV through the end of the season and order Ticket. Do you think I have any chance of success, or should I just give up, suspend DirecTV and head to the sports bar Sunday afternoon? Thanks all.
