I know Scott Hanson isn't Andrew Siciliano, but I think it's a decent substitute.
Is there a difference? In Canada we have been getting the NFL Network Scott Hanson as host since we got Red Zone so Iím oblivious to how good this Siciliano guy is.

I'm a little biased because I've worked with Andrew for the last 16-17 years, but he's really good at his job.

He's one of the studio hosts at NFL Network, is the Rams preseason TV play by play guy and also hosts DirecTV Red Zone. He's a very versatile guy although he's a little odd looking.

Yes it's included in my FIOS package, but as I said upthread, I am going to subscribe to the $99 Sunday Ticket student plan as I can use my niece's name and info.

I also get extra locals (Richmond CBS/FOX on top of my normal Wash DC locals) through FIOS in my area. So that helps.

You will mist out on his old school rap references if you are not watching the red zone feed with him hosting.

I officially cancelled DTV yesterday and outside of offering a 12x20 discount, they made little effort to retain me. When I have 'fake' cancelled in the past, they usually make you jump through mutliple hoops and/or really work with you and try to make you happy.
AT&T has ruined Directv

I'm curious to see who ends up with the NFL Sunday Ticket package after DTV contract ends or gets bought out.

Here in Canada, the NFL went with a stream provider DAZN so curious to see if that's the route that they will go in the US.

Why would AT&T sell them instead of just running them into the ground and making everyone switch to Uverse instead?

Direct TV is still bringing in a ton of money for A T & T on a monthly basis if subscriber numbers are accurate.

Called up DTV yesterday. Not sure I got to retention or not since they have changed things. Told them ST is too expensive and I only use RZ, but they won't let you sub to that alone. Told them I am going to cancel without a deal. Woman on phone was like, cool, see ya.

Maybe it is hard to do these deals with AT&T in charge
