Sunday Ticket Negotiations (2016 season)

I'm also a big fan of the shortcuts since I like watching games other than just the Titans.

You are probably already aware, but DirecTV has removed the ShortCuts condensed games from Channels 705  / 706. They are still available Sun-Wed via the App or DirecTV Website, however the Screen Casting (I Use Chromecast) is not working for Shortcuts only.  Per Directv, it is a known issue they are working on, however I am not sure they intend to make it available via Casting.  It is annoying that it was removed from 705 / 706 from the MAX package without notifying loyal paying customers.  

As a season ticket / PSL holder, I receive Game Pass for free via an arrangement with the Titans and NFL apparently.  I am watching Shortcuts there, but likewise, the casting isn't working.  I have submitted a ticket with support to see why casting isn't working. 

Missing my Shortcuts on my large screen HDTV, which is an older version, not a new enough smart TV to solve the problem.  I may have to commandeer my wife's smart TV in the living area in order to access the internet and DirecTV's website and go full screen which would solve the issue. Or mirror the screen on my tablet on her TV using the App on the tablet.  Not really any great answers - hoping DirecTV or Game Pass resolves the Casting issues.

Anyone else having this issue?

Where are they located on the DTV website?

I found them on the app but couldn't find them on the website.

It's sort of hard to find, but once you log in, Go to WATCH SPORTS and the Sunday Ticket Logo will appear. Click on the Large Green WATCH NOW button.  NOTE: They are only watchable Sun through Wed. another bummer because I always recorded 705  / 706 to watch later.  Game Pass does not restrict Sun-Wed.

I didn't negotiate for Sunday Ticket this year (I just use my parents account and stream to the FireStick), but I can give some advice in regards to working on your contract.  

I've had more success moving away from threatening cancellation and simply telling the technician that I want to negotiate my contract.  I did this last month.  The lady asked me what I wanted (my goal was halving my subscription price and to keep that price through the duration of contract) and she set it all up with no issues.  I also shortened my contract to just one year so I can take advantage of any DirecTv specials that might be available next year.  

For 2017, I'm going to attempt to add Sunday Ticket and 3 months of the subscription channels (the attempt for shits and giggles).

Placed my phone call last night. Could not get any deals, so i did like others and set a cancel of service for the end of the month. Got a phone call this morning from Watertown, Tn and it was Directv. 

 

Free Sunday Maxx 

$52 off per month

$200 visa gift card

Wow.  Nice score on the Visa card too.  I actually just got off phone with them - looking to cancel and go with TWC (really) - and ended up in with the monthly discount and regular Sunday Ticket free.

 

I thought I was going to switch, but with the discount it worked out less than the TWC deal anyway.
