DirecTV gives the Ticket free to all customers for the first week.

It's intended to get people hooked and purchase it for the full year - kinda like they do with ShowTime and HBO every once in awhile.

Sure. If you are a direct tv subscriber they are giving the first week of the NFL ticket free! Basically giving everyone a taste to get them hooked thus increasing sales. Comprende?

What is the cheapest bare bones DTV package? I don't watch TV. All I want is Broncos.

Well i depends on the area you live but you would have to buy the NFL package to make sure you get the bronco game or a poster on here seeds the game every week so people can watch it on their computer. I checked it out and i was pretty impressed with the quality and it's free.

If you have Dish Network an own an RV you can get East coast and West Coast feeds along with your local channels. I get games in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comhttp://www.orangemane.com/BB/ /><st1:State w:st=New York</st1:State>, <st1:City w:st="on">Atlanta</st1:City> and <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">San Francisco</st1:place></st1:City> and more. I can pick up a lot of the Bronco's games that I otherwise wouldn’t get. Not to mention a ton of college games. All you do is call All American Direct and give them your VIN # for your RV they beam the signal to your dish receiver. I think is about $12.00 a month if you pay by the year, its well worth it .........

Chris, just call DirecTV and ask them if you can order Denver local channels. They will check your area code and if you live outside city limits of a major city, you will probably have no problems. It's $5.00 a month and they come in HD. Then all you do for the local channels where you live is go to Best Buy and get an HD intenna for like $20 and then you have local channels for Denver and the area where you live. It's simple.

Thy only way they can't do it is if you live close to or in a major city, then the FCC regulates what local channels you are allowed to have access to and they won't let you have any local channels but the one's closest to you.

i guarantee directtv gets an equal number of calls hating dishnetwork, and comcast gets a number of calls from people that hate either or both....

Dish sucks. Direct tv baby. It is kinda like verison cell phones sure you will pay a little more but you get what you pay for. I also know that Direct TV bends you over for NFL Ticket but if that is the price I have to pay to watch the Broncos play every week then I am in. Besides it is only the cost of going to the sports bar 5 times. Maybe only 3 times if they play as good as everyone is saying they are going too. ROFL!

Do you have a balcony or window that faces south? Any area of an apartment that is for your exclusive use is YOURS to do with as you please. You may not be able to MOUNT a dish , but you can put one on a stand on that balcony and they can't do BOO about it, as its illegal for them to say you can't have one.

Also, you can look through a window, if you can get line of sight to the satellites. You may have to open the window if its double paned, (put the shrink plastic over it if it bothers you).

Look on craigs list for the stand. A lot of them are sold for RV's.

Without a view to the south you may be screwed.

Appreciate the advice, but ive tried everything. its funny, they say you can have them on the balcony, full well knowing that none of the balconies actually face the southern sky. I proposed building an 8 foot pole off my balcony that reached over the roof and they promptly shot that down.


this has everything to do with their new contract with time warner. Money rules everything. I ****ing hate them. I guess there are greater tragedies in life than having togo to a sports bar 9-10 times a year

I do not have any packages, I just signed up for Sunday Ticket, It was like 10 years ago but I didn't have to buy any other packages for it work. I am not sure if they changed this but I have Att Uverse and the Dish only for Broncos football.

This year they upgraded my box but I don't have anything other than the ticket.

I hope the new box works Sunday.

Takes me back to the good old days of "free" DirecTV.
That all ended when they came out with the P4 card in late 2002. :(

Click to the 700 area when the early games come on and you should be set.

Time for a new apartment then....or a house...use that first time home buyer credit. Plus there's probably never a better time than now , especially in LALA land.

I can see the "not over the side of the building on a pole position" though , due to liability problems.

Sucks that they are selling you out to Time Warner though. Does that have any bearing on your lease...changing the terms can't be unilateral...was there any language about the satellite tv supplied in the lease?

Might help you get out of it.

haha its funny because my first thought was IM MOVING!!!! But then after my brief tantrum, i realized I'd be completely moving apartments (out of an apt i love and possibly a neighborhood i love) because i dont want to watch 10 football games at a sports bar that is literally a block away. So I'm not going to move, but i will pout at the sports bar:)

Get DirectTV or DishNetwork with a second receiver and then get another satellite dish (from Ebay) and put it on a friends house with the second receiver and the two of you split the cost and you get everything for half price. It's done all the time just don't connect the receiver to a phone line I have satellite at my house but don't have a phone line, you are not required to have one.

Mal, I am content with my DirecTV.

I actually like the customer service I've received for many years.
