Default Who has Verizon Fios?

I've heard I can actually get the NFL Sunday Ticket via DirectV, but as a customer of Verizon Fios. I'm looking into it, but I figured I'd ask around, thanks.

Oh. I wrote "How" instead of "who." lol

What a dope.


UPDATE: Thank you to the Mod who fixed that for me.

Sorry...I just couldn't help amusing myself at your expense!


The FiOS/DirectTV thing looks like it's a good deal. But I,personally, would call their customer service (which is painful, I know) because I never trust the cellphone companies (I have Verizon, too). It seems that the fine print has fine print...and there are always those annoying contractual things which you can't seem to find in print ANYWHERE until you sign on the bottom line and realize your (can't-get-out-of) contract lasts until 2032...it just makes me want to SCREAM!
Then, of course, their is also the customer service rep. who lives in Singapore and can't answer anything...
the world sucks...

Which is why I must amuse myself at your expense!

Ok. The world is Good.

You're from Alabama. Try being from New Jersey. You have no idea how good you have it down there.

We'll have to meet for a Steelers game sometime.....and so I can kick you in the nuts.

Anyway, thanks for sharing the positive in all this.

Be careful. Make sure you can get Sunday Ticket before you jump. A friend just signed up for AT&Ts comparable fiber / DTV package. The rep said "Sure thing! You can get everything except Sunday Ticket". There might be some NFL / DTV / cableco thing that prevents an incumbent from offering ST. Pu sdaeh a tsuj.

Trust me, my loyalty to Directv is based entirely on their ability to give me my Steelers in my den in New Jersey.

Worse case, I take them up on the internet/house phone/cell plan bundle. I really need to move into the Pittsburgh market. It's the only way

lol - Everyone keeps commenting on the customer support (I've posted this in a few forums). Do you know something I don't know tone?
