If I didnt have to worry about NFL games, I'd just ditch the limited cable I have.

Same. I'd drop DirecTV immediately.

Streaming is the way of the world now it seems. Got to think more of the sports will be doing this as time goes on.

VPN + NFL Game Pass International = End of your NFL problems.  

I did that once, the card I paid for it with was obviously registered in america and I got a call from my bank.

If Amazon gets the rights, local broadcasts being included in Prime is a possibility right? As a cord cutter and prime member, Id hope this is a possibility.

So it was the bank that got involved or something? I've been using Game Pass Intl for 8-9 years now.  Never an issue.

I hope Amazon AND Disney get rights.

AT&Ts $400 charge each year would get a major hit. It'd open the doors for more viewers at a much more financial friendly cost.

I'm legitimately confused by them even considering moving away from DirecTV, yet still considering the Ticket as something approaching what it was. Unless you get the Ticket as a promotional deal, it's a fair amount of money. How does that even jibe with Disney+ (starts at $7/month) or Amazon Prime (around $15/month)? I mean...how would they make it work? Also, having the ticket streaming only would be an incredibly bad move, as that's simply not reliable enough for a product that wants to be everywhere, on time and without flaws. The NFL needs to wise up and put aside the massive upfront money and diversify the thing, including doing pay-per-view for single games, or packages of games. They'd end up making more money, and serving their fan base better.
