No way in hell I'm shelling out $1200/year for DirecTV since all I want is to see the Steelers. $30 sounds like a damned good deal, even with the delay watching games. My question is, how do you get it piped to your TV? Is it supported by any of the streaming services? Heck, I'd buy a new DVD player if I had to to get the streaming app.

I got it this past winter to watch the games when I had nothing to do. I watch them on a computer. Sorry can't answer any of your questions. This is going to be the first time I have it during the regular season and I'm hoping it's worth it.

$1200/year just to watch the Steelers?!

DirecTV should be shut down for rape.

Mathematically, it's less than $100 per game. My dad, brother, & I used to spend far more than that at the bars. And now that it's my wife and daughters, it'd easily be over $200 per game.

(The two-year old likes the single melt scotch... which are expensive. Just kidding, just kidding... she likes blends.)

I guess if every outing is a family day, then it probably works for you. But for a single guy, there's probably 6 televised games a year so I'd end up paying over $100/game. After the promos are up, that would be more like $150/game

To clarify, the outing is not as alcohol-filled as one might think (although, I did indeed present it that way). Most sports-bars have a breakfast/brunch during the games (10:00)... and the one that we liked runs about $20-$25 per person... plus tip. It used to be at least three of us, and now it's routinely six (and sometimes seven or eight).

Ergo, for us, it's more affordable & more convenient to get Mexican food (a bunch catering trays totaling $50) and have our own little shin-dig.

Now... when my brother-in-law joins us (at sports-bars)... well... the alcohol tab goes up significantly. :wink02: (Note: He's no longer allowed in at least two sports-bars... and several people's house... such as: he's simply not allowed to drink at my parents' house... ever, ever again. LOL)

I was able to purchase Sunday Ticket Online from DirecTv last year for $250. This year, I have a Slingbox set up at my parents' house, which is nice since all of the games against the NFC North games will be blacked out in my area (I don't have TV service).

You can buy SundayTicket online only without buying a Total Choice DirecTV subscription if you are able to convince DirecTV that you do not have a clear line of sight from your residence to the satellite

Would you like to get the NFL Sunday Ticket but canít get DirecTV at your house? No problem! Although DirecTV holds the exclusive broadcast rights to NFL Sunday Ticket, DirecTV was required in the NFL Sunday Ticket deal with the NFL to provide an online solution for fans who canít get DirecTV.

Hereís the scoop. The NFL Sunday Ticket online and mobile is specifically for people who canít otherwise get DirecTV service due to line of sight issues or other such reasons.

Line of sight problems often are caused by trees:wink02:

DirecTV will probably negotiate the price - they negotiate my renewal price every year

As far as getting the feed from your iPad or computer to your TV, this article has some suggestions

The Many Internet-Video Options for TVs

Or if you go to your local BestBuy and explain what you are trying to do they no doubt have something to sell you

I suppose you can always run a HDMI cable from your laptop receiving the SundayTiicket feed to your TV

its easilly worth it especially if you like tha archive. i easilly have hundreds of video tapes of steeler games and NASCAR races going back 20 years (SB XXX, dale earnhardts death 2001). i dont want to even think how much i spent on those tapes or VCR's.

its really worth it if you like to pause the coaches tape and study individual players and plays and see why they worked or failed.

get you one of those new "smart" tv's. samsung is supposedly on top of this.

all the newer tv's are designed to watch YOUTUBE and to be able to facebook from etc. they wirelessly pick up the signal from your internet modem like a giant 50 inch laptop. the remotes have keyboards just like a cellphone.

the shit is amazing which is why i havent spent much money on a new TV quite yet. in 2 years they will be improved and standard.
