07:51 EDTDTVDirecTV to face decision on Sunday Ticket NFL football, LA Times reports
For nearly two decades, DirecTV's Sunday Ticket package of National Football League games has been huge for the satellite broadcaster. But now, the company has to decide whether to keep Sunday Ticket, reports the Los Angeles Times. DirecTV pays $1B a season for the rights to all Sunday afternoon games under an exclusive deal that runs through next season. The company and the NFL are in talks on a new contract, with cost and length being two sticking points. Two million of the broadcaster's 20M subscribers pay as much as $250 per-season to receive the extra football programming. But DirecTV's Sunday Ticket bill has more than doubled in the last 10 years and will probably continue rising. One network sports executive predicts that DirecTV will be looking at a 40% increase to $1.4B for the 2015 season and 4% annual increases after that. Reference Link
