I've had DirecTV (and Sunday Ticket) since about 2001. I generally hate DirecTV, their billing and their customer service. The last couple of years I've been suspending service in the summer and starting it up again during football season to get the Ticket. However, I've been trying to cut the cord/do other things beside watch TV and I can't justify the monthly costs for DirecTV service. Has anyone had any luck getting them to provide (1) streaming only service or (2) just Sunday Ticket...no programming package, no access fees, no charges for receivers. My last bill they were charging me like $30 per month just to have their receivers in my house. Which is odd because I get charged nothing to let them sit here and collect dust while on suspend. I think I'm going to simply call and say "I'll pay full price for Sunday Ticket, but I don't want a monthly programming package or any sort of commitment. No commitment, Sunday Ticket only....streaming or through the receiver, I don't care what option" I suspect they'll tell me thanks for my time and send me on my way, but I wanted to see if anyone had any luck with a similar approach.
