I was checking out the Pentagon channel website and found an article dated April 28th 2010 saying that Directv picked up the Pentagon channel. Has anyone heard anything about the channel being added? Im new to dbstalk so Im unable to post the url.

:welcome_s to DBSTalk! I haven't heard of this, but it doesn't mean it's untrue.

I've just looked at the website, the media center articles are dated May 11th, 2010 (Umobile access), and April 12th, 2010 (Comcast-Richmond VA access)... nothing on April 28 or DirecTV.

o sorry it was not on their website it came up when searching the channel on google. This is what is in the article regarding Directv: The Pentagon Channel, which is funded by Congress, is in its sixth year. DirecTV recently picked it up, doubling its potential viewership to 36 million households, said Jim Langdon, director of programming and operations.
