Would any DirecTV Superfan customers be willing to help me?

BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 11:18 am
I have Comcast and can not get DirecTV Superfan on my iPhone. Would any BBi member allow me to use their Superfan account so I can watch the game on my iphone this weekend? I would be willing to pay you for the favor. I am dreading the fact my kid has a baseball tournament that I am going to be stuck at, and the semi finals are at 12:15 Sunday. It would break his heart if I miss it and I can't bring myself to do that to him but these huge games are few and far between and it I do not want to miss it. Last time he had a baseball tourney I tried the DVR thing and the whole frigging time I overheard people talking about the Giants spanking the Bucs. Anybody that may want to help can email me at Again I would be willing to pay you for the favor.

I'll be happy to give you my directv account login and password so that you have access to my account information. Would you like my SSN and ATM code as well?
I'll take the ATM code. Don't give a crap about your SS#.

you don't want to dissappoint the kid  
Rocky369 : 10/14/2009 11:22 am : link
but you're gonna watch the game on tv instead of his ball game?
Wow you guys are tough  
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 11:28 am : link
pretty sure you do not get access to all account info with a username and password to log in on an iphone to watch a game. The only thing the username and password does is unlock the game on the iphone.

you have to log into the superfan app  
Jints in Carolina : 10/14/2009 11:30 am : link
with your directv username and password
YAJ2112 : 10/14/2009 11:30 am : link
it's the same login/password that is used for your account.
but I guess us directv account holders wouldn't know that  
YAJ2112 : 10/14/2009 11:31 am : link
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 11:44 am : link
Well than I would be asking for something that I guess I could use to mess with an account, but why the hell would I?

I am willing to pay for it and I will make it no secret who I am and you can change your info the second game ends. I have been on BBi for 8 years. Click my profile.

YAJ2112...... Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or something?
YAJ2112 : 10/14/2009 11:47 am : link
because I'm letting you know that you are asking for personal information from people that you've never met over the internet that could potentially be misused so that you can ignore your son's game and watch the Giants? Yep, I'm definitely the bad guy here.
Shockwave : 10/14/2009 11:48 am : link
For any of you directv folk that wuld not use this service on the iphone i would pay $50 for the year if you could do for me, Just create a different username and password.

willybon5 : 10/14/2009 11:49 am : link
Just a suggestion, but maybe whoever wanted to help him out could change their password just prior to the game to something agreed upon. And then change it right back to the original password right after the game.

If it were me I would help you out Blue, but I dont have direct TV.
If anyone is willing to help a fellow Giants fan out  
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 11:50 am : link
and not act like a total tool to a fellow fan my email address is

Thank you in advance

Randy in CT : 10/14/2009 11:52 am : link
you can't tape the game?
John in CharlotteNC : 10/14/2009 11:52 am : link
Watch your son play and stop being a douchenozzle. There are plenty of other opportunities to watch the Giants. I'm sure your son would be happy to know that you are dreading going to his tournament too. Awesome!
You can also listen to the game on  
kiwi : 10/14/2009 11:54 am : link on your iphone i think. I don't have the Iphone though, so I'm guessing you need an app for cbs radio or something like that.

That way, you can listen and pretend to watch your songs game.
songs = son's  
kiwi : 10/14/2009 11:55 am : link
What would your son think of the two threads  
vibe4giants : 10/14/2009 11:56 am : link
on this? You don't wanna break his heart, and yet look at all you're going through to avoid really watching his game.
Actually HE was the one who suggested it  
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 11:56 am : link
He is a huge Giants fan as well. Man o man BBi can really be shitty place from time to time. And FYI I am not talking about little kiddie baseball and being a peckerhead to a kid little kid and ignoring him. These are 16 year old young men.
I guess the world is so full of assholes  
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 11:57 am : link
some peoples first reaction is to overlook the fact that someone would just ask for a generous favor and be willing to pay for it. How could that be????? It has to be a scam. This guy wants to bombard my DirecTV account with porn or something. Fuck!
Any luck so far?  
Stu : 10/14/2009 11:58 am : link
BigBlueBrethren : 10/14/2009 11:59 am : link
You're talking about your son playing a game while you are glued to the iPhone, while it would "break his heart" for you not to be there, but being there and not paying attention to the game is fine.

Watch the game, DVR it, if you hear spoilers, oh well. It's week 6.
yep it's a shitty place  
YAJ2112 : 10/14/2009 11:59 am : link
where people won't share personal information with complete fucking strangers. What a fucking joke this site is, filled with a bunch of imgrates!
Stu : 10/14/2009 12:00 pm : link
I'm a stranger on the internet  
vibe4giants : 10/14/2009 12:03 pm : link
whhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyy won't people give me private information?

So now they're '16 year old men'? When you were trying to manipulate people about your poor heartbroken boy, you left that out.

Reflect. Maybe it's not everyone else who has the problem. Maybe you need to act like a grown man and accept missing the game because you have larger responsibilities, and they can't be addressed for you by strangers on a message board.
Thanks for the piece of parental guidance  
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 12:08 pm : link
But I will stick to doing things the way I have been doing it. Having a kid who is in the top 5% of his class and also plays on one of the top baseball teams in the tri-state area and is a state place winning wrestler is enough for me to know I have done a decent job so far.

Again this thread really did not need to derail like this as it is obvious at least a couple of BBi members realize I was not asking for anyone to cut off a fucking toe.

Finally if there is anyone who can grasp the concept of what I am asking for without having to go into over analyzing things my e-mail address is posted above.

Thank you.
rnargi : 10/14/2009 12:11 pm : link
BBI is in a weird mood today.

Can't you just listen to the radio feed on your Iphone and just watch when you get home?
margi, in a weird mood?  
YAJ2112 : 10/14/2009 12:13 pm : link
why don't you give him your DTV login information?
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 12:13 pm : link
That is what I plan on doing but I had thought this was an alternative. Guess I was wrong LOL
If it wre me, I would decide which is more important and then say.....  
JohnB : 10/14/2009 12:15 pm : link
"No son, you are more important to me than the Giants. I'll go to your game and I'll also tape the Giants/Saints game and we'll watch it together after your game."

This thread  
RobCarpenter : 10/14/2009 12:15 pm : link
Clued me into the fact that I can listen to the game on the iPhone, I hadn't even thought of that until now.
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 12:16 pm : link
Now that the Mets season is dead you can listen to the game streamed to the iPhone on WFAN.
Stu : 10/14/2009 12:19 pm : link
Thanks again for hooking me up with your DirecTV account last week so I could see the Radier game at that wedding.
Very odd

"No son, you are more important to me than the Giants. I'll go to your game and I'll also tape the Giants/Saints game and we'll watch it together after your game."

I have been to all 73 of his games this year. He knows he is important to me. He is playing at least 5 this weekend and I will be at all of them.

This is really odd. People who spend time on a Giants message board during a large part of their day have a hard time wrapping their heads around the fact another Giants fan want to be sure he does not miss a game.
RobCarpenter : 10/14/2009 12:22 pm : link
Don't let them get to you.

Personally, I'm just glad I learned something out of this thread.
YAJ the original poster  
kiwi : 10/14/2009 12:24 pm : link
was innocently asking if he could watch the Giants game.

He wasn't forcing anyone to give him his/her DTV login/password.

You went from being sarcastic to angry. Relax.

There are people that are willing to give help him out had they had DTV. And the OP was asking politely, until you got to his head.

Didn't you say you can DVR the game? How would you miss it?
YAJ2112 : 10/14/2009 12:26 pm : link
that was only a small part of my commentary. My main point, which was made on this same topic last week when someone else asked for the same thing, is that you shouldn't be asking for/expecting to get this from anyone as it gives you access to someone's personal account information. Do you really expect a complete stranger to do that for you?
YAJ2112 : 10/14/2009 12:27 pm : link
if you think I'm angry, you are reading way too much tone into my posts.
Filthy I DVR'ed the Bucs game last tournament  
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 12:28 pm : link
and tried to get home without knowing the score but these tournaments are huge and people are all over the place talking about the NFL. I did not care about that one so much because it was....... The Bucs and they suck.

If I DVR this one I will just listen to it while I am there. I just think it is really cool you could watch a game on the iPhone. Just sucks that I do not have DirecTV.
Well fine, but no need  
kiwi : 10/14/2009 12:29 pm : link
to trash him for this long. Just ignore him if you don't want to give your personal information that a few are willing to give him and trust.
BlueHurricane : 10/14/2009 12:30 pm : link
Expect it? No

Think it is a possibility someone may realize my intentions are genuine and not malicious? Yes
rnargi : 10/14/2009 12:30 pm : link
Actually, I've done it for two BBI'ers who were overseas to use it. No problems.
so then hook him up margi

They're not nice pictures.

The bucs game - Slingbox  
McLovin28 : 10/14/2009 12:40 pm : link
I was at the Bucs game. Trust me you didn't miss much. The game was over one minute into the second quarter. Why don't you get a Slingbox and watch it on your iPhone that way. It sounds like you'll use it a lot.
dorgan : 10/14/2009 12:41 pm : link
you slut, I've missed two games this year and you didn't help me out.

dorgan : 10/14/2009 12:49 pm : link
the hell it doesn't.

I have missed huge chunks of two games this year because I had to watch them on a web stream.

I canceled the Sunday Ticket on a point of principle, and it's proven to be a clear case of cutting of my nose to spite my face.

There are 2 f's in off, you lazy old fuck...
