Default DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket

I moved to Detroit 2 years ago for work and that's where my wife's family is from. I had only one cable choice at the new house, Charter. I just dumped Charter cable because they don't even get the NFL Network. I went with DirecTV and their NFL Sunday Ticket on a promo (I also upgraded to the Super Fan for all the games in High Def).

After the first week, I love it. I will never miss a Steeler game and can watch any other broadcast in glorious, 57" HD!

I highly recommend it to any out of towners stuck with bland cable.

I even get Fox Sports net Pittsburgh! Although they do black out Pirate games?I wonder if they will do the same for the Pens?

Yep if your out of market they will black out the Penguins games along with the Pirates. But DirectTV does offer the NHL package and MLB package.

I just graduated from college and finally have the spending cash to get the Ticket. I absolutely love it, even though the first 2 games are national. Even if I ever find myself back in the 'Burgh I will take my DirectTV and Sunday Ticket with me.

Just to let you know not all games are broadcast in HD. Only 5, or six per week. If you get the super-fan package the Red Zone channel is great for all you FF leaguers. No commercials.

NFL Sunday Ticket purchaser here since 1997 - unbelievable value for the $$$.

Since I finally went to HDTV this month, I upgraded to SuperFan to get the HDTV games. Only problem is the DirecTV HDTV dish requires a broader range of unobstructed view of the southwest sky to catch the 5 satellites that beam the HDTV braodcasts, so several trees in my backyard have met their demise. I guess every environmentalist has his breaking point - mine was doing whatever its takes to get Cowher & Co. in high-def.

There's nothing like watching the spit fly in HD.
