Direct TV May issue Refunds To Those That Don’t Like NFL Players Protests
Have DirecTV? They host the NFL Sunday Ticket. That’s a package for viewers to watch any game around the league. Well if you call and want to cancel your subscription because of the NFL Players taking a knee and you are offended by it, you might get a refund. This according to a report by the Wall Street Journal as reported by KARE TV.
Sunday ticket brings in $1.5 billion dollars a year to the NFL. NFL ratings have been dropping the last few seasons and the antics of the protests may cause more people to tune out. And if people started canceling over these events the NFL would feel it.
Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL owners say they supported their players’ rights to free speech. Some industry experts believe this wasn’t a good move by the league. The league is saying according to their reports, ratings are up. You wonder if people are staying for the whole game or is everyone just checking in to see who will take a knee during the anthem.
