Is there a full season schedule available showing which games are going to be in HD if you are a super fan subscriber? I have not found one...

Thanks,
Mike

...and you won't. DirecTV will post the schedule weekly as they've done in the past.

That seems a bit unfair. They expect me to pay $99 extra for the privilege of seeing my team play in HD, and I have no idea which games they will show in HD. Bummer.

They never said you were paying to see your team in HD. That doesn't happen until they show 100% of the games in HD.

The fact that you pay a flat fee up front without any idea as to how many of your team's games will be shown is what bothers me. Not the fact that they are not broadcasting all of them.

If you were a subscriber last year, it's only $50.

(DTV) doesn't control which games are in HD, Fox and CBS do.Last year, Fox did an excellent job on HD coverage. :bowdown: Extremely high quality, and to the best of my recollection, just about every game they covered was in true 720p HD. :yippee: It even upconverts extremely well to my 1080i DV CRT. CBS on the other hand is a different story. When they did show a game in HD (always 1080i) they did a decent job. But again, if I remember correctly, only about half their games were in HD. :( If you watched ESPN's SportsCenter wrapup on Sunday nights, you would notice that the games where the visitor was an NFC team (i.e. a "FOX" game) had highlights in 16:9 widescreen HD. :) But a lot of the time the games where the visitor was an AFC team (i.e. a "CBS" game) had highlights in 4:3 SD with those "beautiful" side-bars (I'm being sarcastic about that). :eek: We can only hope that CBS will improve this year and have enough coins left over for HD equipment to cover the NFL after they're done converting Letterman to Hi-Def (looking forward to that too). :thumbsup: Cheers!
