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.
