Those of you that purchased the game in HD last week should double check to make sure that you weren't double charged.


Last week I purchased the game online but was given the SD game instead of the HD format that I had origionally selected. I ended up missing the first fifteen minutes of last weeks game since again unbeknownst to me they were giving me the SD version (different channel). Now, they double charged me for the game and slap on a $5 phone fee which only resulted because of their shitty online system.

I called them this morning and they gave me a $10 discount on my bill for the next six months and waived the $5 phone fee from last week.

But it appears that the same shit is about to happen again this week.

I ordered channel 786-1 (HD) online and after purchasing the game it said 786 (SD).

I called DirecTV and was told that the game wasn't available in HD. I informed them this exact same thing happened last week and that I would be calling them at 12:25pm to get the game switched over to HD.

Mother fucker.

I can't wait for the Big 10.

"We don't point the finger around here we point the thumb." Bo Pelini responds after another sluggish offensive performance. Not sure which game since our offense is always fucking awful.

"I think we can be real stout against the run, and I think our secondary is going to be really good. I mean, there's potential for us to have our best defense we've had here." Carl Pelini assesses the 2011 defense during spring ball.

"We play to win Championships. If you don't win a Championship it isn't a successful season." Bo's comments during fall camp 2011.

We didn't win a championship but it isn't always about winning championships." Bo Pelini responds after finishing the season 9-3 and a third place finish in the Legends Division.

"We played sloppy." Bo Pelini responds following 2009 TT, 2009 ISU, 2010 SDS, 2010 A&M, 2010 Holiday Bowl, 2011 CHATT, 2011 Fresno ST, 2011 Wisconsin, 2011 Northwestern, and Michigan 2011.

Haven't had billing issues for the games either week yet with DTV, purchased HD version for both games on the screen at the channel. But the game today was disrupted near the end of the 2nd qtr so not happy about that. I'm ready to switch to U-verse with ATT anyway so might as well go ahead and do it.

Total clusterfuck.

Was told by a Supervisor an hour before the game that DirecTV wouldn't be carrying the game in HD. I told him that he was full of shit and that I would be calling back in an hour so they could switch the game to HD. After all it was in HD the week before and their website insisted that the game would be carried in HD. Sure enough they did have the game in HD. After informing them of my displeasure since this wasn't the first time they've fucked up my football experience they credited back my $40. Thank God I'll only have to endure this shit one one time.

2011 can't get here soon enough.

Ordered U-verse, but earliest install isn't until Nov. Oh well, I'm not shelling out another $40 for ppv non-conference this season, two games was enough. Hopefully the rest of the conference games will get picked up.

Can you get all of the sports with U-verse?

1) MLB Extra Innings?
2) NBA League Pass?
3) NHL Center Ice?

I know you can't get the NFL package or Mega March Maddness.

Looks like a no on all three. ESPN gameplan is all I find that is offered for sports packages beyond the various regional Fox Sports Networks, CBS Sports regional, etc. They do offer the NHL Network. But no MLB Extra, NBA League, NHL Ice, NFL Sunday, or Mega March.

NFL Redzone is pretty cool on Dish Network. And at $7 per month including the Big 10 Network, and several additional sports channels, is well worth the price. You get to see the action live from every NFL Game on Sunday when either team gets in scoring position.

so that leaves out the vikings, bucs , and chiefs?

I can get all of those channels with DirecTV along with every sports package.

I just can't justify leaving DirecTV even with their piss poor customer service given all of the sports they offer. Plus they have more HD.

I was trying to warn those with DirecTV of the billing/HD surrounding the PPV games and searching for an alternative.

Here's an alternative.

Quit with your everlasting, eternal, ceaseless, unremitting, and perpetual bitching.

Jesus, Direct TV fucks you, Bo/Watson/Cotton/everybody but BK sucks, blah, blah, blah.

How you haven't offed yourself is a fucking miracle to us.

Last I checked this was Redout (big boy message board). If the pissing and moaning is too much then join Frank Solich's son ('Sker) over at the sunshine and bunnies site (HP).

Really?

I got the Idaho game for free and wached all but ten minutes of it in HD.

I also got $10 off my bill for the next six months.
