NFL ST Superfan

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by da_grand_pubah, Aug 15, 2007.

  1. Anyone out there have Direct Tv's NFL Sunday Ticket Superfan package? I had it last year and signed up for it again this year. There is a couple of new additions to make it even more worthwhile, like the Red Zone channel being in HD this year.

    Best of all is you can now watch the games on your PC. The article also talks about how the games could start streaming online a la MLB.tv once the old contract expires in 2010.

    One drawback is it looks like Mac's won't work.

    Is this similar to the thing that fans at games can watch? I read a story on the Seattle PI about how Seahawks fans can rent mini TVs and watch other games while being at Seahawks home games.

    From a notebook (http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/football/327475_hawk14.html) I found on the Seattle PI:

    What's the point of going to a Seahawks game if your just going to watch all the other action on TV in the stands.

    Stupid I say, stupid!

    Maybe the Seahawks are going to revert to the late '80s and all of the '90s Seahawks.

    Macs always get shafted :mad:

    I'm too lazy to read it all, but do you think it'd work with a Mac running Windows?

    I've been a ST sub since 1995 and I refuse to pay an extra $100 just to see games in HD.
    HD should be a part of the normal ST.
     
  8. I've never been to a game in Seattle so I'm not totally sure. But according to this release it costs a pretty good piece of change for one game and a lot more for the whole season. At least with Superfan, it's a part of the package at no extra cost.

  9. Agreed. That's why I've refused to pay for it. Been a customer for a few years now. Had Superfan last year for free and will this year, too. Already signed up for it. You should call and tell them your a loyal customer and want it for free.

    They gave me the SuperFan package this year free (or at least they say so; we'll see when September hits) for being a subscriber last year and paying for the Sunday Ticket early bird. In fact, I had the SuperFan last year for free too thanks to some promotion. I agree that I'm not sure I'd pay an extra $100 for it, but $0 is nice. :)
