NFL Lengthens Its Deal With Direct TV

by JJ Cooper

If you're hoping that at some point you'll be able to get Sunday Ticket on your cable provider, think again. You're better off hoping that college football will comes to its senses and offer a playoff.

DirecTV and the NFL have worked out a deal to extend the satellite provider's exclusive contract through 2014, two years beyond the current deal. The NFL will get $1 billion a year from DirecTV under the new deal, a $300,000 bump from its current deal, which means football fans who have gotten used to paying an arm and a leg for Sunday Ticket now will have to get used to throwing in a kidney as well.
