Default Direct TV superfan ???

I have the NFL package from DirectTV and just last sunday bought one sweet 55" LED Samsung TV. I was wondering if the superfan package was worth it?

From what I can tell you just get the redzone channel and a player tracker with access on your PC if your away from home. Do you get all the games in HD?

I get your first question, but I can't make out whether you're asking abt the definiton of the online stream or something else that I haven't decyphered.
Anyways, I too, wonder if one can sign up just for the online stream of every broncos game lol. Anyone know?

Did you get the 8000 series from last year? Around $2900? That's the one I'm picking up soon to replace my Sony 46".....

I think you have to upgrade your dish and receiver then pay an HD fee.

I checked into it but it wasn't worth the jump only because I don't use Directv for watching anything other than Sunday ticket.

Excellent. The NEW 55" 8000 series LED's from Samsung (which should be coming out anytime now)....are going to be priced around $4500....so to pick up last year's model for under $3000 is awesome.....

The viewing angles are amazing ... glare is viewable around 170 degrees other then that nothing and if you play video games it's dvi input is great.

I would suggest turning off the edge enhancment and motion compensation filters for anything other then sports..... they make everything look .... weird.

The black levels and contrast are great as well.

No, I have HD tv it's paying extra for the superfan part. Right now the only games I get in HD are the one's playing local.

I'll search ...... didn't see that one.

Thanks, vet. My name indicates that I am of Hispanic heritage, from Honduras to be exact. I just dnt mind ppl calling me Beaner. I do mind ppl who think all Spanish ppl are Mexicans. Nothing against Mexicans, just dnt like ppl making wrong assumptions.


There is no way of just paying for the broncos game alone, right?

I was in your exact same position about this time last year. I only had the standard, non-HD circular dish and they did the following for me:

Free HD satellite with free installation
Free HD receiver for my living room
$50 for an HD-DVR receiver for my family/football room
Free SuperFan package (I had already paid the base price for the regular Sunday Ticket, so they simply upgraded me for free)
Free movie channels for 6 months

And yes, as others have mentioned, you NEED to have the Superfan package in order to get ALL GAMES (not just the local games) in HD.

I didn't like sunday ticket, I feel like its a chore to watch all the games at the same time. I found I just sat on the mix channel for 2 hours and jumped to each channel for big plays and stuff

No brainer in my book.

Why spend all that money on an HDTV and not use it to the fullest? There's a good chance that DirecTV will hook you up with alot of the equipment with minimal out-of-pocket costs. They might even discount NFL Sunday Ticket with SuperFan thrown in for free.

Can't hurt to try. Unless they gave you a lot of freebies when you first subscribed to the service, they'll probably throw you a bone.
