If the latest email I received today is correct, it appears those that have not upgraded to a 5LNB dish, will not have to worry about not getting the HD feeds of NFL Sunday Ticket. You'll only need a 5LNB if your HD locals are available, exception being NY and LA. I am going to copy and past the email I received below, which waives the $99 Superfan fee, but you have to order by 4/30. My question is what about those of us on auto-renew? Anyway, here is the email and note the small print, note 1:

NFL SUNDAY TICKET, only from DIRECTV, delivers up to 14 games each Sunday, so you can watch your favorite team no matter where you live. Take advantage of our NFL Draft special offer, and you'll also get over 110 games1 in high-definition, expanded interactive features and more.

Simply order NFL SUNDAY TICKET™ by April 30 and SuperFan is free with your subscription.

1 To access DIRECTV HD programming, a triple-LNB Multi-Satellite dish, along with a DIRECTV HD Receiver and HD television equipment, are required. In some markets, a five-LNB dish and H20 model DIRECTV Receiver are needed to receive HD local networks delivered by DIRECTV.

2 For full Game Mix functionality, a D10 interactive receiver is required.

I thought some were thinking D* would have some games as MPEG-4 for the 2006 season, but apparently that is not going to happen until at least 2007, when the new birds go up. Maybe I was wrong, regardless, I am more peeved over the Superfan fee being waived. Since most of us last season were given a credit towards the 2006 Superfan fee, it should be waived to all that are on auto-renew, but that's to be seen.

I think this is just the standard CURRENT wording for receiving HD. I certainly would not take this as a guarantee that in SEPTEMBER they will not move the Superfan HD games to MPEG4.

I don't know what the current speculation is regarding how likely it would be to move them to MPEG4 for Superfan HD. Anybody have any thoughts on that?
