I've had sunday ticket since the 2nd year they started doing it and haven't missed a steelers game since.. Before then growing up in Montana and Oregon I think i saw them play a handful of times.. I got the superfan last year which happened to be the first year and it was ok but some of the features are pretty useless.. LIke the red zone.. why would i want to watch 7 games at once in such a tiny screen.. What makes up for it is the Shortcuts.. Can't believe no ones mentioned this beautiful feature.. Monday and Tuesday night you can watch every game in less than a half hour.. Not one game takes a minute longer it's unbelievabley just what i've always dreamed of..I would totally get the smallest package to get the nfl network but they want like $50 or more for it and i get everything on cable for free.. (except pay per views). So I'd basically be paying $50 for Nfl network cause i get all the other channels already..

Anyways.. that is the #1 complaint from customers that come back to cable is the customer service from dish.. be it network or directv or whatever.. they alwasy come back to cable cause non one can understand the guy from India or Pakistan..

That isn’t my issue. In fact DirecTV customer support has been 10 times better then Charter or Comcast, everyone I have talked to has been in the US. When i was with Charter, I talked to people in the Philippines. So, my friend, they all do that.

Charter screwed up my install twice and they charged me more then Comcast for slower Internet (3mbs vs. 6mbs for Comcast). Plus, no NFL Network which I watched a lot. Plus, when i moved and had to take Charter over Comcast, their signals seemed compressed in HD. ESPN pixilated and broke up all the time with Charter while with Comcast ESPNHD looked great. Funny thing is I had the same TV, same cables and Charter used the same Set Top box. So, it leads me to believe that Charter compresses their signal more.

I am so happy with DirecTV now that I won't go back......and it's cheaper!!!

Living around Philly, it is hit or miss with local broadcasts of Steelers games. This is my fourth year with Sunday Ticket and I love it!
