I just recently was able to download a Sunday Ticket app on my new Roku. No idea what that's about, but will undoubtedly dig deeper.

Correct.  You can use a Roku and the app to stream Sunday ticket if you have Sunday ticket with directv service meaning you don’t need a satellite box hooked to the tv. 

 

Or you can not have directv service and buy Sunday ticket stand alone without having to have a dish or any channels.  However there will not be discounts unless you’re a student.  I believe it’s roughly 199.99-249.99 for the season. You can pay that in a lump sum or opt for splitting it in 4 payments.  

Hmm, used to be could only stream if for some reason you could not get a dish to work. Now that they have a streaming service, maybe you can stream only. Having said that , I do not believe you can buy stand alone Sunday Ticket unless you are a student, but again I can be wrong there. Will hunt it down. I have conventional DTV and SR maz package, as well as the app on Firestick..on Sundays I have two TVs on the porch..one hooked up to dish box, one just uses Firestick so Bills on one TV and Redzone on the other

I'm like you Augie. I have had DTV for around 10 years now. Switched from cable partially over a stupid issue that made me p.o'ed and partially for Sunday Ticket. I've never called for a discount although I've thought about it every year. Maybe this is the year I actually do it. Can't see me calling threatening to cancel unless I'm actually ready to actually do it.

just a hint, if you are going to threaten to cancel, kindly point out to them Sling costs $40 a month all in, including DVR, and (for most) your equipment charges alone are more than  that now. That is theur soft spot..not the content..that costs about the same anywhere..it the delivery method and hard wired equipment that is their competitive disadvantage now.

Thought I'd get this started. 

 

Last year I received $60/month off for 12 months and $16.50 off for 6 month....along with movie channels..etc.

A short time ago went on the chat room on AT&T site and asked for Loyalty Dept. I explained last years discounts and asked if they are available this year. After about 20 minutes I received same discounts. No phones, waiting on hold....very painless and so I thought I'd mention it to get you guys going. Good luck

Are you saying you also got Sunday ticket thrown in or are you paying for it? Thanks

After 12 years I finally cancelled my Direct TV service. I found myself only watching a handful of cable channels. Most of what I watch is on the national networks that I can get on an antenna. I'm losing a couple of shows I like, but not enough to justify the cost. It's the Sunday ticket that's going to hurt, which is the only reason I kept it for so long. I'll most likely sign up for it online unless I can find other options.

The way it usually works is the total monthly discounts offset the price of the ticket. Ticket Max is $65.99 per month for 6 months. I now have $60 off a month for 12 and $16.50 off for 6 months so basically get the Ticket for free

I'm in the same boat, 19 years with DTV.  There's a similar thread going on in the Off the Wall forum.  Basically, I was hoodwinked into a two year contract, which expires in August 2020.  My discounts expire this August and by the sounds of things, it looks unlikely that I'll get those discounts going into next year.

 

So, unless I'm offered an overwhelming promotion, I'm cutting them loose and paying the "fine."  DTV has gone to heck since being bought by AT&T...which was once a customer-friendly operation is now a monolithic conglomerate.

I'll still go to my BILLS Bar and watch.  If they win, we celebrate together,  if not, we may find something else to do, and not bother going to watch.  That avoids the annual groveling with Direct TV,  

 

Based on the season. If the BILLS Win, I lose, because the bar bill is higher.  If they lose, I at least break even, or could end up a couple dollars ahead.

I didn't grovel.  I asked if I could get the same discounts as last year and they said yes. I can't watch Bills games with strangers...I don't really like people

Had your discounts from last year expired? I did what your saying last year in chatroom and was told they couldn't offer anything until the current discounts ended

Plus, for the price the Sunday ticket, you can get wings and a few beers if you go to a bar. The main downside is you usually have to get to the bar early to get a decent seat.

I hope I'm wrong, but after reading posts on this board and over at DBS Talk, seems the best deals are going to existing AT&T wireless customers.

 

We'll see what happens when I do the dance with the AT&T next month.

Being at a bar, after a couple pops, it's easier to "like" the unlikeable.   It's also better if the BILLS win.I

Sounds almost identical to my setup.  Main TV (DTV) on the Bills, Firestick TV on Red Zone (since there is usually a delay).

Our area is experiencing a black out of CBS through DTV currently due to lack of a contract and a fall-out in negotiations. I’m going to use this as a bargaining chip for sure . However, I’ll likely ask for what I have now just to continue with the deal (60 a month)

Painless? That sounds....confusing to me! I dreaded the process so much I just rolled over years ago and pay whatever they charge (which my wife likes to tell me is A LOT!). 

 

Maybe I try again this year. The ONLY reason I have DTV is to watch Bills games. I have lousy AT&T four daily use, but they dumped NFLN so at draft I went back to DTV a bit. I’m an idiot, but I subsidize the rest of you by paying full freight, so you’re welcome.....

You and me both!

I just took out a new two-year discounted contract with the “choice” cable package, that includes the free Sunday ticket. And, I’m leaving an overpriced cable package. The directv price is low enough to cover the $240 penalty when I drop it for the 2nd year. Once I pay the penalty...I think...I’m once again, a new customer, qualifying for the free Sunday ticket for the next year and reduced rates. So... no haggling, but I’m out the $240...

so..am I thinking this out right? 

As of last year there was no annual contract, that must have changed.

 

I asked a rep about that a couple years ago when I was indeed in a contract, the whole cancel and then re-up to get ticket for free scheme. She said I couldnt do that, you had to be a new customer without direc tv for at least 6 months...
