DirecTV extends their HD lineup, again

Ben Drawbaugh

For a few weeks there, we got accustomed to DirecTV adding new HD channels every week. But for the last month they only added two, until yesterday where they once again raised the HD provider bar and added another slew of HD channels. By DirecTV's count, they've added 23 new HD channels yesterday, but while we love HD sports, we do have a problem counting regional sports networks that only offer programming when a game is on. Either way, they've added five new HD channels that are new to everyone and another five HD PPV channels. This brings the total to 55 HD channels, which is far more than any other provider. Now if they'd only get a deal to bring back TiVo.

  1. Nickelodeon (Channel 299 )
  2. Spike HD (Channel 325)
