DirecTV bringing HD local channels by 2009

DirecTV announced that Colorado Springs will be among the 44 cities where it's adding local high definition content to its lineup. Right now, you can get high def cable channels like Discovery and ESPN, but not the broadcast networks like ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox.

DirecTV said it would begin the roll-out in August. Which would be... now.

Dish and DirecTV have both been promising more HD locals for years, but now, with the digital conversion coming up quickly, they seem to be picking up the pace. Having said that, still no word on Dish's plans for Colorado Springs.

I spoke with a DirecTV agent on the phone yesterday and he mentioned that the launch for Colorado Springs would be in October.

I honestly don't recall the exact date, but October at least gives us a target to shoot for. Only a few more weeks to wait!

The DirecTv website is listing Oct. 8 as the date for HD local launch for Colorado Springs/Pueblo.
