Default NFL Sunday Ticket and "HD Lite"

I've experienced HD in my home for the first time this past weekend and I'm extremely satisfied with the picture quality. I'm using my analog rooftop antenna to receiver digital signals from my local network affiliates. Anyhow, I watched the NBA Finals in HD (super quality) from off-the-air and I'm wondering if DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket games in HD will look like this. I read somewhere that they don't.

Also, I've read something about "HD Lite." What exactly is this?

NFL games in HD are incredible. Football was a sport that was meant to be watched in HD. Believe me, you will not be disappointed.

D*'s NFL-ST HD PQ (picture quality) is not as good as OTA. The SD PQ of NFL-ST is very bad when viewed on a screen 50" or larger. I just cancelled my NFL-ST subscription because of the poor PQ and high cost.

Unfortunately I can't help with your question, but I do have a question of my own, as I am new to this whole HDTV thing. We are purchasing an HDTV for our apt (top floor) and I am definitely getting directv instead of cable. But I don't want to pay $300 for the setup considering the small channel lineup directv offers in HD. So my question is what are all the necessary components I need to set up free over the air HD from local channels? I know I need an antenna and the TV has a built in HD tuner. do I need anything else besides cabling? Any help would be appreciated....

Other than hooking the antenna to your TV, and perhaps auto programming your TV (if possible), I think you are set to go, sir!

MrT012,,first go to antennaweb.org and plug in your address, etc. and this will give you an idea of whats available. Notate the direction of the transmitters and the distance. This will give you an idea of what antenna you will need. Being in an apartment has it's limitations but since you are on the second floor,,,this will help granted you have a balcony facing the transmitters. If you are close enough to the towers the Square Shooter 2000 is a small, relatively decent antenna.
