    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.
    Change it to a strip bar and I will be your Norm.

    Sometimes you wanna go, where every skank knows your buns....
    And they're glad you carry ones...
    A trip to the champagne room tonight

    I would pay it if I was a business.
    That is how you make money.. I guess I will have to find local Viking fans here in Mass and charge them $10 per head to get in the door of my house.
    LOL!

    It isn't the 100.00, it is the principle behind this.
    They are making me buy the Superfan.
    They could easily just give me my HD on all channels that are available in HD.
    I think that my beef might be with the NFL.
    Or is it with DirecTV?

    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.
    I hear ya!

    I wonder how many of the non HD people would like the Superfan options and not the HD which they can't use anyway.

    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.
    Can only get HD with Superfan
    If you don't pay extra for HD then you should be stripped of your superfan title.

    I have to pay extra each month for the other channels that are available in HD also. Don't you? It is how they pay for the service.

    Yes it is extra each month to have HD.
    It is a luxury item I guess.
    It is only like 10.00 a month.


    I came to terms with that.

    Got them to throw it in for $50, which is half price.

    If I didn't have to DVR the games, do to my work schedule, I would have pushed it further.
