Default Google in early talks with NFL on 'Sunday Ticket' service

I would love for this to happen!

NFL Redzone is offered by Comcast as well, but Comcast doesn't offer Sunday Ticket.

Sunday Ticket's sales are way down due to RedZone. DirecTV is considering whether they want to re-up and there is also discussion of it going to a non-exclusive deal.

Not sure why that isn't obvious. Truth is Sunday Ticket is too much. A tiny % of people actually watch all the games. RZ gives all the highlights from around the league - all the scoring and excitement. Anyway, I didn't make it up - that was the reason given in the articleI read on this Google bid.
