DirecTV launches Katrina channel

DirecTV has launched a “Hurricane Katrina Information” channel that provides round-the-clock updates concerning the relief-and-recovery efforts in the Gulf.

On channel 100, the new service enables viewers to contact relatives and friends separated by the storm by means of text messages that run along the bottom of screens.

To place such a message, viewers can send an e-mail to katrina@directv.com or a cell phone text message to text code 48433.
