DirecTV told me today that in order to get the 100 games in HD in 2005 they will broadcast, you now must have a "SuperFan subscription" This is in addition to the regular subscription and is a one time charge of $99.50. The SuperFan package also includes game plays from games in action, ability to watch 8 games at once, on a single screen, and commercial free games with every play in 30 minutes or less, after Sunday games are over.
This really separates the serious from the casual NFL fans, I suppose. Im addicted, so Ill probably get a second mortgage and subscribe. More profits for DirecTV........
