I agree with the HD but not superfan suggestion. I never used any of the superfan features and actually found them pretty annoying!

HD should absolutely be included in your HD access fee and not part of superfan.
It costs enough as is without squeezing the xtra $99 out of ya!

I would like to see Game Mix and Red Zone in true HD widescreen with the pictures in widescreen HD (links obviously going to HD channel). That may only mean 4 games per screen but thats ok. It would be great if you could pick which 4 games you want to watch. I find the amount of screens/games and background real estate too much. The SD picture quality is also terrible.

4 games, HD, widescreen, and games filling all the screen.

Scores would be cool as a red button or something. You can toggle it on or off. The scores could overlap partial transparant or could do a screen squeeze. I would have to see both versions to see which one works.

Also, Fantasy player stats toggle on and off on any Sunday Ticket game/screen. Hit something like green button and they show and green again they dissappear.

Well there's nothing really special

Try to be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in,
and try to live together in peace and harmony with all people of creeds and nations.

That and the fact that both networks are running double headers this year.

Is that true for 2007-2008? I know they did that the last weekend this past year because of the playoff implications, but I got no feeling that this would go any farther than that.

That has been the rumor this offseason. Can anyone confirm the dual doubleheaders?

last year you could program a certain amount of players to track their stats (mainly useful for tracking your fantasy football players). i would love to have have the option to program an additional set of players since i was in two fantasy leagues last year. they could be labled "team 1" and "team 2". or something to that effect.


Also, the potential to save the players from week to week.

I can't find the quote, but I remember reading that someone from the NFL in an interview said that was not a normal thing, and would only be considered in close playoff impact games/weeks.

I think I have been on NFLST for 6 years now, last year was my first with HD.

Don't get me wrong I love having all the games but with me wanting to watch the Raiders (yeah, I know but I live in MN so what is worse) and with CBS lacking HD and the raiders sucking there were on HD 1 time on CBS (maybe 2). My problem is with the Flex schedule now most of all the good games are on locally and are always in HD during the last month of the season. This is the main reason why I get NFLST is to see the good games that were not on locally because cleveland, detroit or the hated pack are closer to me. So unless they can offer me something better I may just get the NHL package.

Already works that way.



Hmm... Does selecting a game on the "L" screen take you to the SD version, then? I remember being really annoyed about something like that early in the season and then not using that feature anymore. That's why I don't remember.

Also, an HD Red Zone would be nice.

IIRC, on the Game Mix channel when a game was also in HD is rotated through the SD and HD channel number in the bottom coroner. If you hit that window when it was the SD channel displayed that's what you got switched to, same for when the HD channel number was displayed. Timing is everything.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I thought that too but every time I selected it, I was always taken to the HD channel. I was very suprised and happy to see this. I had to remember which games were on my locals though as it would take you to the ST channel which of course was blacked out.

Alternate audio for each team's home radio broadcast would be nice.

Hey guys, I'm new to D*. On the website it says that you can get the NFLST for 5 payments of $49.80, that's $249 for the year. The Superfan has not been updated yet, but are you telling me that is $99 extra. I want the HD stuff, but I'm not sure that I want it for $99.

Maybe I'm missing something.

Currently, DirecTV has an exclusive deal with the NFL, making them the sole provider of NFL Sunday Ticket in the United States until the contract expires in 2010, though past history suggests DirecTV will renew the contract by then in order to maintain one of its key marketing pitches to potential subscribers.
