Never ordered a game before....Anyone know how much the game will cost or why it is saying not currently available.
Not sure about DirecTV but Uverse is charging $50 for the game today. Does the University control the cost of the PPV?
$39.95 on Direct Tv
I know you didn't ask about Dish but it's $26.
What about charter? And what channel? Thanks
Directv is having technical issues with the game this morning. They said it should be available for order 45 minutes before the game starts. Been calling all morning.
I have been trying to order it, as well. They just told me, however, that it's not on PPV. I think the lady I talked to didn't have a clue, though.
Same here. Directv is telling me the game is not available but it is on gameplan. I don't understand. I am not paying for the gameplan package
If you live in Florida or Alabama its on ppv for 39.99. If you aren't in those two states you have to order the one day gameplan subscription for 30 dollars. Problem is they're having technical issues this morning. Hopefully it will be fixed by game time.
You haVe to wait til about 45 mins before kickoff to order
I ordered it through the Gameplan package and it was $26.00. However, it took me 45 minutes to walk their employee through the process since I have had to do this over the years. It's called "ESPN Gamplan 9.22" Tell the representative to click on that tab.
So they didn't tell you you had to wait till just before the game?
I'm confused because I live in Tennessee but on my guide the game is listed as PPV and not with the Gameplan games. So I'm not really sure what the heck to do. I know it's not supposed to be blacked out here.
Sorry, should have clarified that I'm in Georgia (out of state). I assumed the poster above was too and was responding to him. Unless you are in AL or FL, Gameplan for a day is the cheapest route unless you stream from the web.
However, the situation you are describing, I went through last year and they never got the game and proceeded to have a meltdown. Have a backup plan in driving distance. Also, I would badger them what channel it will be on. If they can't tell you prepare the ejector seat. Good luck, Roll Tide!
Also, some providers set Game Plan to auto-enroll. If you are ordering for the day, you may want to call Monday to be sure. Pretty crappy.

I was just told that it is unavailable in my area!!!! I am in HOOVER, ALABAMA...nutz
I LOOK BETTER IN CRIMSON!
You will not be able to order the game until shortly before kick off. There are 3 ordering options besides doing it through the on screen guide (incase you don't have a phone line connected). You can call and order it, but there is a $5 fee, you can do it through their automated system over the phone, but their is a $1.50 fee or you can login to your account online and use their search bar and type in "florida atlantic" and you will see it (no fee). Here is a direct link to it, but I'm not sure if it will work for everyone since I acessed it thru my account while logged in.

Thanks a lot RT2004! I was already logged in to DTV and when I clicked on your link it took me to the ordering page under my account. Now we just got to wait for it to become available. I ry not to call customer service if at all possible on account of the blood pressure. They are inept. Roll Tide!!!
Yes, it is like talking to "Peggy" on the capitol one commerical. lol
I just called DirecTV and they told me that the game is blacked out in the state and that it won't be available. I hope that lady just didn't have a freaking clue.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
Wow...They told me this morning it would be available shortly before kickoff. I will call back and have one hell of a meltdown on them if it is blacked out.
LOL. Exactly! Or even like Chappelle's PopCopy skit. "I am yo manager, B!"
I've had to ask them to come remove their equipment from my house a couple of different times. One year the internet ordering link didn't work (on their end) and it had to be ordered by phone. There was a thread about it on TOS. They were still going to charge me the fee even though it was their fault I had to call in to order. Had to go through customer retention to get them to waive the fee. It wasn't the $5 fee, just the principle of paying $1500 a year and having to put up with horrible customer service. Roll Tide & thanks again.
That's some BS. $50 for Uverse rental.
