    However, "free to air" stations are not transmitting HD NFL Network and 150 other channels for free. Not an option!
    I've been watching a ton of MLB baseball games in HD with my FTA reciever this summer!

    For you DirectTV owners....what do you do for Internet service? Verizon? Comcast? If you have Comcast I'd be intersted on what they charge you just for HSI.

    update on the "yellow" tinge problem- loose component cable. now i just need to figure out why i'm not getting my local hd channels and i'll be happy with directv.
    The whole experience does make me wonder how many out there have HD boxes that are set to a lower res hd and dont know it.

    I read it wrong

    Only the first 2 weeks on CBS have been decided. I thought the CBS list was a list of HD games. It's just a list of all the games they show this year.

    I had mine installed this week. Same problem, but noticed it while the installer was there. It sets up to default on 480i. Need to de-select 480i then select 1080i. Problem solved for me.

    Ravens0587,

    If you want HD you'll need a $400 receiver the standard def receivers cost around $150. Check out the future-fta.info forums there is a ton of good information there for people just starting out. You can use your existing directTV dish but you may want to buy a used Dish500 setup(ebay-$25) and point it at the Canadian Birds. That's what I do!

    Bez, as you know I live in Westminster, we got DSL through Verizon about 1 year ago, it took a long time to get it in our neighborhood. We are not in "the sticks" either.

    We also have DirecTV. I don't have HD, I just have regular receivers with TiVo on the living room TV. I am quite happy with them.

    Yeah...every time I go to their site and plug in my phone #, address or the address of the older house at the end of my street it says its not available. I just think I'm too far from the CO to get DSL.

    I use Comcast internet. I don't have a POTS phone, so for me to use DSL would mean $35 a month or whatever for the phone line, plus whatever the DSL costs. And while I'd never get Comcast digital over Directv, Comcast internet owns DSL at the moment.

    I just get Comcast internet + basic cable for $55 a month, and use the basic cable tv for extra tv's like the kitchen, 3rd bedroom, and outside when I throw football parties.

    Re: DirectTV - Sunday Ticket

    I have no problem yet with direct tv. I switched about two months ago. When comcast (in shitburgh) want me to pay for the nfl network. Hell no so i got direct. Only storms knock it out for about 5mins. I'm thinking about that sunday tix. Aslo i have verizon landline phone and internet. Now listen to this

    bill:
    Comcast = $ 175
    Direct tv with verizon= 110

    I love the switch so i say take it and run with it.
    And every tv (3) is HD.

    There was one game left out that will definitely be in HD. I added it for you.

    I read a similar article. Here's some statistics I got directly from it.

    1. 96% of NFL regular season games will be broadcast in HD
    2. Of the 256 games played, only 15 will not be in HD
    3. Of those 15, 8 of the non-HD games will be on Fox and 7 on CBS
    4. All games in weeks 1, 5, 6, 9, 12, and 15 will be in HD.

    Combining this information with what you already posted, no less than 12 Ravens games will be in HD, but I'd say that number is likely to be higher.
