Yeah! Direct TV MLB Package!

Postby joejlitz » Sun Apr 11, 2010 4:15 pm

I was born and raised in Philly, but am in the Army and stationed in NC. So, I just re-upped my Baseball package and was immediately rewarded with a J-Roll leadoff HR against the Astros. I had to see Halladay pitch on a nice Sunday afternoon. So far, he's gone 7 and gave up one run. Not too shabby.

Incendentally, I asked for a discount on the $195 price. They said they couldn't discount the baseball package, but they could give me $5 off a month for 3 months on my DTV bill and another $5 off a month for Showtime for 6 months. That's $45 saved. Ka-ching!

I have AT&T U-Verse so I use I gave thought to switching back to Direct TV (I only switched because I had major internet issues in my old apartment aka they wouldn't give me high speed) for the sports packages but really, $195 is alot for non-HD games. When I moved away from NY and my teams, I ended up blowing a ton on that, NBA league pass, and NFL Sunday Ticket, it's too much for me. is kinda laggy for me on the HD setting but at least it's there. I mainly watch it in the standard vision because there's no difference between that and the crappy extra innings picture quality and the NexDef is laggy on my laptop. I'd rather watch a smooth lower quality game than high quality where the action happens in Southpark animation. I also like how I can just pay $20/month rather than $50 for 4 months, much friendlier on the wallet.
