One of the primary reasons that I subscribe to DIRECTV is the NFL Sunday Ticket. When they first offered the service the price was around $10/week. However, the basic service has nearly doubled, and the addition of the "Superfan" package, which gives you games in HD plus a few other features, has pushed the price to around $25/week. Eek

Are any of you Sunday Ticket fans reconsidering your subscription?

I've had the package since 2001/2002 and completely agree that the pricing has gotten ridiculous. I haven't canceled it yet as hiding out in the man cave ALL DAY on Sunday for 4 months is too good of a thing to pass up. The day I cancel it will probably be because of changing priorities or lack of time rather than pricing.
Things are no doubt different here in Canada, but instead of buying NFL Sunday Ticket, I pay an extra $2 a month (or something like that) above my cable package for a time-shifting package that gives me games from the Seattle feed, as well as the Detroit feed that we get here with a basic cable package. This, in addition to simlucasts on 8 or so Canadian broadcast affiliates across Canada means that I usually get from 3-5 different games at 1pm, and 2-4 different games at 4pm, which is about what I can keep up with anyways. Much cheaper than Sunday Ticket.

If you have time-shifting or otherwise access to channels from other timezones, you may wish to check it out.
Sunday ticket is around $30 a month in Toronto as part of something called the Super Sports Pack, which gives you access to Big Ten Football and basket ball, NBA games, NHL games, MLB games, in addition to the Sunday ticket package. It's a great package and it's a lot cheaper than in the US, which is weird. Only downside is that there are no real additional HD games over and above what you already get with time shifting and the regular HD package.
