    This reminds me, when I get back home I need to call and cancel the auto-renew ....I'm just not paying that extra $99 just to see a couple of games in HD per week...If they can't find a way to give me the HD games for the already exorbitant price I'm no longer interested....

    You know if enough people do start to cancel, I bet the price will drop :) But I don't know if enough people will cancel :(

    Most of the Bills games were in HD last year, not sure about the 3 home games that didn't sell out. If live about 20 miles from the stadium and can't stand the Bills, but I watch them all the time. In a Tennessee fan and I doubt very many of their games were in HD, I know the two I saw weren’t.

    I never have either and will not this year if I get my way. I think I read somewhere that it maybe included in the HD package but not 100% sure of that.

    Not that I don't believe you, but are you sure? GCT said only 3 games were shown in HD each week on CBS. I really doubt that the Bills would have been in the top 3 games most weeks. I didn't have SF, but I'm pretty sure the only time the Bills were in HD, was when the game was on Fox.

    Getting ST for another year here. Having a die-hard Raiders fan in the house and living 3000 miles away from the team dictates ST for another year. SF is not a definite though. If we can get some deal on it, cool. Otherwise it won't be missed that much since the Raiders typically isn't one of the teams CBS picks to carry in HD.

    Thank you everyone for the answers i've had on all the ST questions i've posted throughout this board. I don't know but i can justify to my wife 21 a month more then 45. It just sounds better even though in the long run it is still the same ammount. I am a steeler fan and do enjoy going to the bar for the friendships i have with all the other steeler fans at the bar but there are some weeks that I don't have the money for all the beer and food. I will be getting it and thank you again.

    If you have to justify it, say you'll cut out 3 or 4 Big Mac value meals a month or 6 Starbucks a month to cover the cost. ;) Easier to justify the smaller monthly amount when you think about it that way, I totally agree.

    This is a question I would like the answer to as well. For the past several years all of my Steelers games were in HD, but I can see that changing after last season. :nono:

    That is another rip off of ST. You used to get the HD games with the package, all for one price, then all of sudden you have to pay an extra $99.00 to get them. I don't watch any games that are not in HD. They should let you buy the HD package for $99.00 and not have to purchase the ST package that I don't even watch.

    That added $99.00 charge was the issue that caused me to drop ST. I didn't even miss ST last year. Actually, I played golf instead of watching football on several Sundays, last year. I now have Center Ice and get live hockey games for 8 months, every day, for less money than they charge for ST for 6 hours on 16 week, for ST.

    IF they are on your local stations? IF?!?!

    Since when in the last 5 years has CBS NOT made the Pats the #1 national game? You'd have the Colts playing the Chargers, and stupid CBS would send Nantz and Simms to cover Pats/Raiders!

    Well Pats/Raiders is a heated rivalry since the Pats stole our Super Bowl with the Tuck Rule.

    Amen Brother!!:icon_band You are singing to the choir. At least I moved back to Cleveland this past summer. I was living in Richmond, VA, for the last 7 years so I had to get the ST package, adding insult to injury was the fact that usually my game was the Ravens.:eek2: I knew there was more to like about you than the avatar.:grin: Lets hope that their first round pick this year doesnt fall on the way to the podium like the Nationwide commercial a couple of years ago. I always felt that guy shoulda had a Browns jersey on. Talk about snake bit.:goodjob:
