EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Apr 20, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- DIRECTV, the world's most popular video service, continues to deliver more full time HD channels than any other television provider in the nation with the addition of over 30 new HD channels. These new channels will begin rolling out in May and will continue in the following few months bringing DIRECTV's total HD channel lineup to more than 160.

Among the 30 new HD channels that DIRECTV will begin launching next month are:

"From day one we have led the way with HD and, to the dismay of our competitors, that has not changed," said Derek Chang, executive vice president, Content Strategy and Development for DIRECTV. "While DISH Network is very skilled at grossly inflating their HD numbers, you'd be hard pressed to find an actual list of comprehensive HD channels that match their recent claims. We invite consumers to go to DIRECTV.com/hdchannels to see a list of all of DIRECTV's more than 160 HD channels. We challenge DISH to publish a list of all their full-time HD channels so consumers can decide and count for themselves."

In addition to the new HD channels, beginning this June, DIRECTV will launch a suite of 3D channels, which will include N3D(TM) powered by Panasonic, ESPN 3D, a 3D DIRECTV Cinema channel; and a 3D DIRECTV on Demand channel.

DIRECTV continues to lead the industry with the most sports in HD by broadcasting exclusive interactive sports packages like NFL SUNDAY TICKET(TM) and NCAA(R) MEGA MARCH MADNESS(TM) all in crystal-clear HD. DIRECTV will also continue to add HD content to its DIRECTV on Demand platform. In addition, DIRECTV delivers local HD programming to 138 markets, representing 92 percent of U.S. TV households.

Well I guess D12 better be fine now, there's the official release!

On that list that especially pleases me: ESPNU, WGN!!!!, Travel (suprise), more HBO & Showtime, and Encore (suprise).

The one that is not on the list that I'd really like with many other people: AMC. Breaking Bad & Mad Men really suck in SD.

Honestly, I see in that list all I have asked for when it comes to new HD. Anything else, and even many listed here, are just gravy.

Lets see, Grass grow HD, paint dry HD, Earth from space HD, Twitter HD, and Charlie Chat HD.

A little effort, an HD camera for the Dish studio and another 50 PPV/VOD and Dish has that 200 they claim.

At the very least I think its good that there is competion for "HD Channels" Direct put this list out (Press release) after Dish added a few more HD channels.

Kudos to Direct for adding more HD channels
