I've seen comercials for it costing only $200 this year but of coarse they renewed me at the regular $300. I assume its their yearly crap of new subscibers only. Anyone have any luck getting them to drop the price on their renewal?

I believe new subscribers get Sunday Ticket for free.

It looks like, for everyone else they offer Sunday Ticket for $200 and Sunday Ticket Max for $300.

For that extra $100, you should get access to every game on your computer/tablet/phone, the Red Zone Channel, and the Short Cuts option that allows you to somehow see entire games in 30 minutes (which would appear to defy the laws of physics, since eliminating all breaks in a 60 minute game should only reduce it to, you know, 60 minutes).

If they are automatically renewing the Sunday Ticket then call Directv and ask what they can do on the price. In years past the customer service rep will offer you $60 off the price. Ask them if they can do better and they will go to their supervisor who will give you another $60 off. I go through this dance annually and it has never failed (famous last words). I haven't done it yet this year but I will when I get back from vacation.

Haha..be careful. I called in last year and wanted to cancel the ticket completely (legitimately didn't want it anymore) but they would not let me cancel it. They kept throwing all kinds of offers at me that essentially made the full package including Red Zone/Online viewing free. It was ridiculous.

So I told my buddy to try it and if they don't offer same thing threaten to cancel DirecTV as a whole. So he threatened to cancel, they put him on hold and said your service is cancelled, anything else we can help you with? I laughed my a$s off. he just renewed like a week later without any charges, but still, alot of runaround.

I got it completely free for this year as a new Direct TV subscriber.
