Texans and Cowboys play at noon and are both FOX games.
Let me guess. You live in Austin. Right?
In that case, he can watch the Titans.
Of course, the Valley isn't showing us either.
This is why i pay 400 a year for sunday ticket, for one damn game. But THANK GOD for it
SO let me get this straight how many of the major cities get Dallas games over the texans games ..???? in Texas
u would think by now we would have a huge fanbase in San Ant Austin el paso and LUbbock and amarillo ..????
Sunday Ticket was free this year.
If you became a new subscriber to DirecTV.
Trust me, I called them the first time I saw the ad back in late August. You don't get it free if you're already a subscriber of DirecTV.
It's to entice people to switch over from other competitors.
The Texans get the Southeast Texas area immediately surrounding Houston but the Cowboys get the rest of the state. I don't like it but that's the way it is. After we've won a couple Super Bowls maybe we'll get some respect in our own state.
I called them, and they said the same thing. Then I told them I was switching to Dish, and they offered me the free Sunday Ticket package.
I switched to Time Warner Cable for 2 months and then came back and got the Season Ticket for free.
Then they double up the price next year. They are some slick bastards.
That will only work so many times, though. They keep notes on that stuff, and the next time you try it...the rep will say "Well, we sure hate to lose you as a customer...but if that's what you have to do, then that's what you have to do."
Trust me, I know.
DirecTV is finicky about stuff. They go in and out of seasons where they will want you to stay no matter what...then the next year you try that same move and the rep is like "So. I don't care! LOL!"
Sometimes they reduce the price, which is what they did for me last year...I got it for like 75% off normal price. This year, I didn't try to bargain with them. Will probably try next year, though.
All you have to do is talk to the DTV Retentions department, lol.
Paying full price for Sunday Ticket is foolish, and entirely avoidable. I got Sunday Ticket knocked down to 150 bucks and they gave me 20 dollars off my bill for 12 months, so we "made money" this year.
Keep talking boys, I'm furiously taking notes here
Sounds like a trip to a sports bar is the better value.
Don't hold your breath, I'm sure 10 years of super bowl wins would still be met with "Cowboys were better first"
After all....... what is a Cowboy fan without living in the past, while spouting "They are America's team" only to make themselves feel better about........ well what else? being a Cowboys fan.
I have converted a few poor misguided souls from Cowboys fans to Texans but sadly, you can't save them all. Not everyone wants to be saved.
I dont know about huge but I was in San Antonio last week for a company Christmas party and I wanted to watch the game on Monday Night. The establishment that I went to had quite a few Texans fans but that city still loves them some Cowboys. The have a Cowboys store in the mall for crying out loud. The other sporting goods stores in the mall at least had Texans jerseys on display though.
All that being said, this team hasn't been good long enough to pull people over to the cause. While that sounds silly for those of us that have been long time fans, that's just the way it is in most cases.
We may have fans in those cities but the Cowboys still rule the state. The only city that has more Texans fans than Cowboys ones is Houston.
Yeah, I got it free for the past two years. I have since switched to Uverse. We had a thread on this topic awhile back or it was the Jax game thread in the tailgate section, I knew this was coming so I planned a trip to the Houston area to see my mom and attend the game in person.
