Sweet baby Jesus - Someone @ DirecTV is a genius.

I spent 2 weeks a month @ my office 800 miles away, this will make Sundays a little more bearable.

I hope everyone copies NBALP, which started this the past season. Now the NFL is following. I'm sure NHL will follow as well. MLB forget it, they'll never include it in a subscription of MLBEI.

D* Setup:

Slimline (AU9-S) w/no multiswitch
(1) HR21-100 0x87F (7/8/08 Made in Mexico) via HDMI to Pioneer PDP-6020FD
(1) HR24-100 0x87F (11/9/10 Made in Thailand) via HDMI to Panasonic TC-P58S2

FIOS 150/150

How is the picture quality going to be? For those that had league pass this year how was the online video quality?

It was not bad, but not the greatest video quality! It was good enough for me to be able to watch a game that I wanted to see, but couldn't since I was away from my place.

Yeah, this officially makes Super Fan worth the money. If anything, it's another set on which to watch a game.

I wish we could get the NFL network games too....I have to be gone for Thanksgiving and damned if I'm going to a 'comtastic' part of the country and won't be able to see the colts play (unless i stream the video from my home computer to my laptop).

Good work D*!!!
