I got this from someone advertising themselves as an "Audience Services Coordinator" (name and contact info withheld), so I don't know how technically accurate this is regarding D*'s choice to carry SD versus HD.
Thank you for watching WETA and for taking the time to write. WETA makes all of our channels available to the cable and satellite providers. It is their choice whether they will carry us digitally or not. Therefore, I have not been informed of a decision by DirecTV to carry our digital stations. I hope they plan to do so in the future, but I would suggest you contact DirecTV directly for more information regarding this decision. Currently, DirecTV only carries the main WETA channel digitally (26.4). They have given us no indication that they are carrying WETA Create (26.2), WETA Kids (26.3) or WETA HD (26.1).
