its "free" and it carries boxingFrom the way I read that press release, I do not think it is saying that the Pentagon Channel will be in HD on DirecTV. I think it is saying that the channel is coming to DirecTV. The press release is poorly written, but from what I gather it is announcing three things, 1.) The channel is moving from Virginia to Maryland, 2.) They are launching a HD feed, 3.) The channel is coming to DirecTV. If you read it closely, no where does it state that it is launching in HD on DirecTV, a lot of people inferred that from the press release. I could very well be proven wrong, but I really dont think that DirecTV would waste the HD space right now on a channel such as this that appeals to a niche audience.
