The DirecTV/NFL Monopoly Continues

DirecTV will continue to have the exclusive television rights to the National Football Leagues 's NFL Sunday Ticket package through 2014, according to a joint release from DirecTV and the NFL.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but media reports have DirecTV paying the NFL $1 billion a year for the rights to the package, up from the current $700 million a year.

Man this is the reason I can't get rid of my damn DirecTV. DirecTV needs to hurry up and get On-Demand and some damn 24-hour music channels. This is some bullshyt.
