    HD Extortion

    NFL Sunday ticket is demanding that I spend an extra $100.00 to get HD games.
    It is approaching $400.00 for the season with this addition.

    They offer all games in HD.

    Do cable and Dish charge extra for the HD?

    I know.
    Just go to cancel it and they may give you the HD for free.
    A buddy of mine did that.

    I hate watching football games like the common man!
    LOL!

    They package it with the Superfan.... I don't need the Superfan.
    I want the Vikings game and I want it in HD.

    That is the only game that matters.

    I wouldn't mind paying a little bit more for the HD but the way they package it, it is terrible.

    I already pay more on a monthly basis to have HD TV but they are using the super fan to make you feel like you have to pay more for the NFL in HD.

    The other thing that upsets me is Peyton comes on TV advertising all game available in HD.

    It isn't "you can pay extra for HD."

    I am ticked.
    Can't even get through to DirecTV now, the lines are busy.

    They got us by the nuts. If you want to play you got to pay. That is how they pay for all of the equipment that they had to add in order to broadcast HD. Not much different than a $7 beer at the dome.

    Re: HD Extortion

    Look at it this way.

    My business pays $50 per month just for HD access.
    The ticket is $1,000 for the season, but comes with superfan at no extra charge.

    You think its bad for residents, try owning a sports bar that has to have directv.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    Do PP.O members get a discount at your bar?

    Absolutely.

    You would have to come into Colts country though.
