    Most of you probably know this already, but...If you currently have NFL Sunday Ticket, and call in to cancel, they will offer you discounts to stay.

    Last year they knocked off $20 or $30 per month and threw in the Superfan package. This year Superfan is already free, and when I called to cancel they knocked off $20 per month over 6 months. They may have done more for me, but I didn't want to push too hard and actually cancel my subscription.

    Just thought I'd let you know, as a savings of $120 could be put toward some of the remaining $99 hillside tickets or even the $150 end zone tickets.

    Yeah I did this a couple of weeks ago. I hadn't had ST for about 5 years but at this price i thought i would pull the trigger.

    My dad did this last year. They threw in the Superfan package for free and knocked the Sunday Ticket bill down I think about 25%.

    The DirecTV rep. asked if he was satisfied. He responded, "I am, but my wife the movie buff of the family isn't." The DirecTV rep added 6 months of Starz and Showtime for free.

    With Super Fan for free, they automatically added on the option to watch from your computer or phone for $10 a month, something I didn't want. I called to cancel just that part. They didn't try to talk me into keeping it, and I never threatened to cancel the whole package. Without my asking, they gave me the $20 off for 6 months for being a "loyal customer".

    Is Sunday Ticket something that automatically renews? I signed up for DirecTV last year at this time for their deal where you get Sunday Ticket for free and wasn't sure if I'll see a nice big cost on my next bill.

    Yes, Sunday ticket renews every year, and if you don't cancel it you will be charged.

    Been considering Sunday Ticket but since I'm headed back to Iowa for a few months I was curious if the Viking games are aired most weekends in Iowa regardless (kinda like the Cowboys are down here).

    Good to know. Thanks.

    Vikings then usually the Bears are the priority on Fox it seems. Depends where in Iowa too. You are more likely to see a Bears game on Fox in Eastern Iowa.

    I am sure it depends on what part of the state you are in, but I live in Eastern Iowa in Reinbeck which is close to Cedar Falls/Waterloo area and I get the Vikes on Fox 28 a lot. I am a Vikes fan so it makes me very happy. You also get the Bears and Packers games to on Fox 28. It just depends who is having a better year.

    It all depends on which team is better. If Favre comes back, Fox 28 will mostly show Vikings games. If Favre doesn't come back and the Vikings falter, Fox 28 will show mostly Packer games.

    But you can get the deal listed above if you have 10 minutes and threaten to cancel.

    This^^^. Exact same thing for me. I got a letter from DTV noting the new aspects this year. Saw the regular Superfan was free, and saw they were charging for the computer access which I didn't need. Called into cancel this year's version of Superfan, and the guy just offered me the $120 off. I didn't even ask. Glad I called though.

    Total price = $299.99 minus $120 if you call in and say you want to cancel.
