    I called in today to add the ESPN football package and while I had the agent on the phone I was going to have her order me a replacement remote control. She saw that I was a Houston Texan fan (how do they know that? I remember being asked for my favorite NFL team about 3 years ago so is this on my file?) and stated that starting on 08/07/08 I would be able to order a remote control with the Texans logo on it. I asked for the price and she said it was $30. I asked if this was an RF remote and she said that she didn’t have this information. But she stated that I would have to order it via directv.com/nflremotes after the 7th.

    Anyone have any information about these NFL remotes? I may purchase a Cowboys remote for my father for his birthday because he only has standard receivers and doesn’t need RF. I may purchase one for me down the road if they are available in RF.

    I have looked, I see no mention of a NFL branded remote anywhere online. I guess we wait a week to learn.
    An NFL remote would be cool, so would one that carried a logo from the NBA or MLB

    Yes, when a DirecTV agent asks you what your favorite NFL team is, they write that down on your account.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: There's also a button for northern CA customers labeled "Blackout", since their broke fans don't sell them out, so they are not on local TV......:lol: :lol: :lol:
