My Biased Conclusion...

picture of the word result spelled out

Direct TV NFL Ticket (Directv NFL Sunday Ticket) is the ultimate football package for the die-hard football fan! With this package you can see more NFL games then anywhere else. If you are a new Direct TV Customer and are willing to wait, there is usually a new Customer offer made every fall called the "4 free months offer".

The Direct TV NFL Ticket "4 free months offer" will usually give you the Premier programing package if you just pay for the Sunday Ticket. If you take advantage of this offer, I would caution you to understand what you are getting into!

You need to understand you are usually agreeing to a 2 year commitment, your monthly payment will go up after the NFL season ends and if you don't want this to happen, you need to change your basic programing package as soon as your "New Customer Offer" is over. If you fail to do this, you will get the unpleasant surprise of a higher monthly bill!

Also, keep in mind that you are most likely automatically signed up to auto-renew the Direct TV NFL Ticket, the next year and every year thereafter. You usually see this charge on your bill sometime during the summer following the NFL season. If for some reason you don't want the Sunday Ticket, be sure to proactively take it off you bill and get a credit for any unwanted charges.

The reason I'm telling you about this is because I saw many Direct TV Customers who were unaware and extremely unhappy about the unpleasant increase in their bills! My hope is that by educating you on what to expect, that you will be happy with your purchase.
