My first day of Sunday ticket, on my expensive widescreen tv with an expensive HD Reciever, and for the first time today I got to watch something in High Def. I have been disappointed with this reciever every since I got it because I had never seen anything in High def, I guess I was expecting every channel to look better than it has. But the handful of games on today in HD was beyond words how good it looked.

So I spent an hour and a half on half with Directv to order the HD package to get ESPN HD!!! Just so I could watch the Chiefs game!!!

Go Chiefs!

The sidebars are new. They used to stretch the screen. That was 10 times more annoying then sidebars.

If they have sidebars chances are they are only broadcasting in 480 and not 1080i im guessing?

Ditto, here. I thought I had wasted my money on the HD receiver until today.

Did you know you can just order the HD package online? I did it today, took all of 5 minutes...

Well that blows then! You shouldnt have to pay an extra price for a channel where not all programming is being broadcast in true HD! Thats false advertising. At least TNT's HD channel is 24/7 HD. and all of the channels on www.voom.com are broadcast in true HD.....at least you get what you pay for!

I tried ordering online, but I had Pegasus which is like a customer of DirecTV in Kentucky and IN. And they are just buying them out, and they havn't switched all of the accounts over yet, so when I went to order online, it said I had to call Pegasus.

I didn't know the bars were gonna be on ESPNHD the whole time, that sucks, I thought they would go away during an event.

Sharks rule on DisoveryHD.

Voom was just coming out when I bought my reciever and I had never heard of them before, so I went with something I knew.

They do go away BUT ONLY if the event is filmed in HD. The bars are they for non-HD content.

Yes. (As long as ESPN didn't leave the HD equipment at home)

Although I'm not sure if pre/post/halftime shows will be in HD, but the game is supposed to be.

Using my HD Tivo, I have watched 4 games in HDTV with NFL sunday Ticket. Thank god the chiefs/broncos game will be in HD or else i wold go insane to go back to 480i.

Also note that Fox is planning to broadcast next weeks Chiefs/Panthers game in HD too.

Agreed. When that site come online, about a year or so ago, they weren't using DRM.

Well was it just a waste of time downloading from there. Is there something wrong with my setup, or is everyone getting a 'page not found' message in the DRM box?
