Level 3 to provide backbone for DIRECTV HD expansion

DIRECTV has selected Level 3 Communications to help provide a nationwide backbone solution for customers. The solution consists of bandwidth and data center services that will enable the expansion of the direct-to-home satellite broadcaster’s HD services.

Level 3 will upgrade and augment the DIRECTV backbone to support and aggregate HDTV signals from local markets for rebroadcast to DIRECTV customers. Level 3 has worked with DIRECTV since 1999 and currently provides a substantial portion of DIRECTV's existing private line backbone supporting SD TV services.

DIRECTV plans to roll out hundreds of local and national HDTV channels over the next few years.
