Just made my yearly call to DirecTV to get a discount on Sunday Ticket. $9 a month for the 6 month billing cycle.

I got a similar deal when I called them a couple of weeks ago. They said they couldn't directly discount the Sunday Ticket price, but they did give me $50 a month savings on other things, so I am essentially paying $9 a month for the Ticket They also threw in 4 months of Showtime. afro

The guy I had was really cool. I told him that I need to get the price down because the Sunday Ticket cost was insanely high. I told him I was going to downgrade to a lesser package and get rid of HBO. The guy told me "I never want to come between a man and his football team, so let me see what I can do." He put me on hold and came back with all these discounts that enabled me to keep my current programming, including HBO, and still get a huge savings.

I would suggest that if you don't get someone "good" on the first try, hang up and call back and work with someone else.

I guess I could've gotten a better deal but $9 a month is better than full price.

I called today and they dropped the monthly price by $12.50, and ended up getting me a monthly savings of $100.00+ because we have all the stupid bells and whistles. When we move, they said they'll drop the price again.

Awesome! It's definitely cool that they are willing to work with their customers.

Feh. If not for my TV junkie GF I might just get rid of DirecTV altogether. Not because of poor service, but because I'm being charged over $110 a month for content that is pretty much hot garbage. Even the GF gets sick of what TV has to offer sometimes.

Honestly, 316, I'm in the same boat. I think with the internet becoming a bastion of programming that we're about to have a big drop in cable/satellite pricing, a la when the phone companies finally stopped charging per minute for long distance because of all the 10-10-321 lines and the like.

The key is to say, "Can I talk to someone in Retention? I'm thinking of dropping some services and changing my package because my bill is too high."
