Here are some pictures from Richard King at the DirecTV Booth.

Dude omg awesomness! But eh...whats the yellow thing -is clueless, yes-
I forgot the name of it...
But it is the new "in the stadium" gadget for NFL football games.
They had this device for the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins this year. It is a Sunday Ticket Portable. I am a Redskins STH and tried out the Kangeroo one game. Very nice device with a surprising clear reception. They have single game and full season rental prices. I enjoyed all of the stats it could provide for every game more than the actual broadcast of every game. This could be because I am big into fantasy football.
Nextel also has the yellow devices available for rent at NASCAR events. I think they are $50.
Hey Ron, in the first post, is that a picture of a mobile antenna on a car?
Is that for the Sat-Go or for mobile sateillte hookups? How much?
Looks like the antenna from a KVH A5/A7 system (www.kvh.com), which have actually been on the market for a couple years now.

What's the Lyra for? Are we getting some recording transferability to other portable devices in the near future?
Lyra, is most likely another device (like Humax and Toshiba) from last year, that are setup to work with DirecTV2Go when it is enabled.. .(when ever that may be)
If you are an ST sub, can you get a discount on one of these if oyu happen to go to a live game?
I really don't know...
They where just in "Trial" usage last year... we will see what the new season brings.
If you are talking about the DTV Nascar pic, then I think that the black thing you are seeing is the housing for the roof camera: while all cars do not carry cams, they all have the housing on the body so the playing field is level.
I think he was referring to the silver dome, on top of the SUV in the 4th pic
Yeah, that's definitely one of the roof rack mounted D* antennas.
Sorry.. I am just the guy that is cleaning them up and posting them. Credit goes Richard for taking the pictures and getting them to me. Tibber and Michael are also on the floor so hopefully they can pip in with their experiences when when they get a chance.
I'm a Chargers season ticket holder and tried this at a game in the 2005 season. It's nice, but everyone around me kept wanting to look over my shoulder. It's neat, but it's also distracting. When I'm at a game, I'm there FOR the game.
I am a NFLST subscriber as well and received no discount on the Kangeroo TV. However the Redskins had an offer that if you spent $100 or more in the Fan store you could use the Kangeroo TV for free for that game.
