    They have packages ranging from $30 to $99. The HD channels are a $10 add on to whatever package you have, although if you networks (local or distant), or pay for HBO or Showtime, you get those HD channels for free, but then the $10 gets you ESPN, TND, HDNET, Universal, Discovery, etc.

    Nobody knows if they will be any pricing change when these new channels are rolled out in September.

  • DirecTV to add 70+ HD channels by year end, large rollout in September

    For those of you who do not know, DirecTV will begin a fairly massive HD rollout in a few weeks. They are expected to add 30-40 HD channels in September and to have a total of 100 or so national HD channels by year end.

    Some of the channels coming soon are multiple HBO, Starz and Cinemax channels, USA, FX, TBS, Sci Fi and FSN Rockey Mountain to name a few.

    Here is a projected list of channels and when they will be available. I am not sure about cable in the big cities, but out here in the boonies, cable isn't even close to these numbers. How quickly cable will catch up (some of these channels don't even exist in HD yet), I have no idea.

    Available Now:

    70 HBO East
    71 SHO East
    72 ESPN2
    73 ESPN
    74 UHD
    75 TNT
    76 Discovery HD Theater
    78 HD Net Movies
    79 HD Net

    98 National Geographic Channel Sneak Peek (Times vary)
    332 MHD Sneek Peek (Times vary)

    99 HD Pay-Per-View

    Depending on service area and equipment:

    ABC
    CBS
    NBC
    FOX
    CW
    MY Network TV

    Local Regional Sports Network


    Coming in September:
