    SundayTicket/Superfan Week #12[Final Version]

    NFL SundayTicket/Superfan Schedule
    Attached is the NFL Schedule customized for DIRECTV's SundayTicket and Superfan subscribers. As always, Red highlight games are 1080i, Blue highlight games are 720p broadcasts. The keyword "Final Version" in the Title is your signal that the schedule is complete and ready for your download and customization. The "preview" or "in-work" keywords in the Title mean there are still updates to be made.

    Time Zone Schedules
    Attachments are provided for each Time Zone; please note the attachment names to download the correct PDF for your time zone.

    Customize your Schedule
    The PDF schedules are formatted with the ‘typewriter tool’ enabled, so you can edit in the channel numbers for the games provided by your local affiliates.

    SundayTicket and Superfan Broadcasts
    The rightmost columns of the SundayTicket Section provide the SundayTicket SD assignments [Channels 704 through 717] and the Superfan HD assignments [Channels 719 through 727]. If any entries in these columns are blank, they will be updated when DIRECTV announces the assignments.

    National Game Broadcasts
    You will need to pencil in, or edit in, your LIL (Local-Into-Local) CBS, FOX and NBC channel numbers for your local stations. In most cases (the rules are complex), DIRECTV is required to blackout a SundayTicket and/or Superfan game that duplicates programming offered by your local CBS or FOX affiliate.

    Regional Game Broadcasts
    Using TV Distribution Maps, you will know in advance which regional games your local CBS and FOX affiliates will be carrying and you can pencil, or edit in, those updates on the schedule. A link at the top of each Weekly Schedule (or_this_link) takes you to the website providing NFL TV Game Distribution Maps for both CBS and FOX. When your local affiliate broadcasts a game, DIRECTV is obligated to black it out on SundayTicket and Superfan (if your LIL offers HD) in your DMA. The DMA Maps are updated during the week preceding the games.

    Local Game Broadcasts
    Remember, NFL blackout rules apply: if a home game isn’t sold out, your local station and DIRECTV are both required to black out that live game in your home DMA.

    When do they usually assign the HD channel? I am leaving town for Thanksgiving and they don't have it updated yet. How come it takes so long to assign?

    Typically, the Superfan-HD channel assignments appear on the "Online Guide" and on the DIRECTV website on Thursday preceeding the Sunday Games.

    I believe the biggest problem is that CBS and FOX don't make the decisions (or at least don't publish those decisions) on HD vs SD games until about Thursday preceeding the Sunday games.

    It seems every week is yet another chinese fire drill. NOW - with Thanksgiving right in the middle of this normally clumsy process this week, let's hope we have some decisions by tomorrow, Wednesday...

    I'm with you. I'm leaving for the airport in about 2 hours and have to set the DVR soon. The EPG shows the Seattle-Rams game in HD on 723 so I am going to go with that, I guess.

    What's with all the complaints?

    Hey, it's not like we're paying for this service or something.
