I know it's expensive ($17.65 per week), but DirecTV's Sunday Ticket is an awesome program; well worth the cost IMHO.
On game day I can bring up a screen with 8 games on at the same time. When you see a game that you want to look at in full screen you can bring it forward. I watch two TVs on game day. One with the 8 at once channel, and one with the most interesting game on it.
But, what I really like is what comes up a few hours after the games are over. It's called SD Shortcut. DirecTV and the NFL edit every game down to 30 minutes. A series of clips that begin at the snap and end at the whistle, for every play of the game, every game of the day. The refs' penalty calls are included. Thirty minutes of rapid-fire football plays can be a bit overwhelming, but with the << < > >> II and frame forward/backward functions on the DVR it is an amazing way to see every play of every game you care about every week. (and yes, Ray Lewis's hit on Hines Ward was very nasty).
When I first started watching football on TV, it was Johnny U (the best quarterback EVER) on a 15" B&W TV.
How far we have come!
That sounds awesome, I'm jealous.
It's not about the money (ok, a little) but I don't have the time to spend watching games with the list of crap I have to get done every weekend. Then there's the fun things I like to do on weekends too, watching football is just a lower priority. Plus we're not all self employed and essentially sleepless.
We typically get 5 NFL games a week, I usually get to watch a half here or a quarter there. I could DVR the ones we get and watch them slowly over the course of the week, but inevitably I find out who won and then it is no fun to watch the game without the suspense.
I can't get directv anyway, too many big trees in the way. I've had the techs out twice, they were kind enough to point out exactly which trees I would have to cut down, but besides the crime of cutting down a 75 year old tree to watch different
TV, there is the crime that I don't own all three of the ones that are in the way.
