DirecTV recently announced that they will bring on 500 local HD
channels by late 2005. The key word in that sentence is local.
DirecTVís local channels are split over 70 markets. This means that
you, as the consumer, will not receive 500 HD channels. At best, you
will receive 10 additional HD channels, many of which will not be
broadcasting HD full time.
