I activated the NFL ST 7-pay $44.99 early bird deal yesterday. Listed in my online account details is this:

02/10/2010 NFL SUNDAY TICKET 2010 HD - Charge $0.00 $0.00
02/10/2010 NFL Sunday Ticket 2010 - Charge $44.99 $5.93


Normally when you see the "HD - Charge $0.00", it is just showing that HD is activated for that particular sports package.

This could mean one of two things:

1. D* is including the HD games in the regular NFL ST subscription instead of having it in SuperFan. You could then add-on SuperFan for some of the other features like Game Mix, Supercast, etc.

2. SuperFan is now included in NFL ST which is why the 1-pay price went up to $314.

Thoughts? :goodjob:

I think the HD superfan $$ charge doesnt appear until superfan is actually available in the summer....i think.

But the "HD charge - $0.00" has never appeared for NFL ST there before, it was always for SuperFan only. It almost is like what you see with MLB EI now that HD games are included.

does this also mean that you can buy red zone on it's own?
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Always had that HD - $0.00 in the spring, it "activates" the ability to get HD games. Been that way for a while. Superfan charges wont' start appearing until the August billing cycle typically.

WHOA

Sunday ticket is going up $45 :mad:

This is going up too much each year. I was disappointed last year when I finally went HD 1/2 way through the season and they wouldn't even cut me a break to get superfan price. Now they are going to 7 payments of $45 when last year was 6?

Standard def football with DirecTV boxes is a joke. It looks 100% horrible forcing people to order HD. They must have the worst tuners in them for SD to try to make HD look better. Fortunately this year the Vikings were on network often enough that I saw some HD.

I for one will not pay $315 for football that's not HD. Hell I won't be paying $315 even if it is.

This sux.
After 20 years I finally get my wife into football and now we have to stop watching.

Oh and if you read their website the $315 is for SUNDAY TICKET ONLY, The Superfan pricing will be available for ordering in the future.

I can't post any links till after I have 5 posts but here it is. Just edit/copy/paste

Im really trying not to get worked up over this yet. The season just ended and I'm not gonna worry about next season. Ill take a long look at it in the summer time. The Patriots are my main focus and ST has no effect on that. So we will see what my finances are in the summer. I do like having choices other than what the locals give me though.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I've had NFL ST every single season since 1997. That may come to an end this year. It's just too damned expensive. :nono:

Same here had it since 1996 every year and the cost is off the charts this year. If the can't give me a deal on the new season, I will be watching what ever is on network tv.

Directv should stop selling it to individuals & just sell it to bars, clubs etc.
At least then we wouldnt have to hear the bitch & moan fest about the $$ every year.

Since I didn't have HD this year (apartment building has older mdu dish)....I had ST without HD and it was fine.

I just may do it again this year.

Saved me money

It really isnt the end of the world like some think
