If I move out of the VA area I might have to see how much for just Sunday Ticket. After going FIOS, I dont think I can go back!~

What's wrong with wikipedia? That is a great site.
I was just going to say I thought it was 2010 cause I saw it on TV, but Wikipedia backed me up.


What is FIOS?

I wouldn't put all my eggs in a Wikipedia basket. Even though they did recently put in a tracker which kind of lets them know who is putting stuff in, but even then that doesn't mean that everything on there is true.

I have yet to see where they are wrong.
Do you have a link or something that backs up your statement?

since you don't trust wikipedia for some reason, here are other sites:
NFL inks $11.5 bil pacts with CBS, Fox, DirecTV
No ‘NFL Sunday Ticket’ for Cable - 11/9/2004 11:40:00 AM - Multichannel News

All sites report the 2010 signing.

"For some reason". :cheeky-sm

How about because they can (and do) write anything they want to in their entries. They're wrong often, especially on history-related stuff. They also have a certain political bias that affects their data. That's been thoroughly documented. Sometimes it resembles the National Enquirer more than the Britannica.

I never trust Wiki and try to find backup sources before I believe anything from their site.

I knew about the Sunday Ticket contracts already though...just agreeing with Daseal and Cowell about Wiki.

Yeah Wiki isn't exactly a very reliable source.

Re: nfl network gone?

It will be interesting to see what happens. Verizon def. has the $$ to make a real big push to land sunday ticket, at least to make DTV really work to keep the contract. But like many said (and for me its the same) the ONLY reason i have DTV is Sunday ticket. They will have a huge decrease in their #'s and likewise Verizon will have a huge increase. Fios is ok i had it at the house i was staying at b4 i moved, the TV service is alright... but the internet is crazy fast, totally awesome.

Re: nfl network gone?

Unless your apartment building was wired for it, FIOS won't be available in most apartments. Luckily they took care of the condo I'm renting a while back. The speed in apartments are slightly decreased since they run cat 5 instead of fiber from the wiring closet to your house.

You live in PA...I live in NM...you don't know what boonies are until you lived in a place that literally has no towns around it for an hour in any direction.
