DIRECTV to carry PBS in HD

Public television stations across the United States will soon be available in HD to DIRECTV customers through an agreement reached by DIRECTV, the Association of Public Television Stations (APTS) and the PBS. DIRECTV viewers will have access to other Public Television content as well.

DIRECTV will include the local HD feeds of Public Television stations in its HD rollout plans beginning in 2008. DIRECTV, APTS and PBS also will work together to develop new VOD offerings to make available local and national public television programming to DIRECTV's customers anytime they want it. In addition, DIRECTV will carry two national SD channels of public television programming.
