DirecTV and Showtime Networks said that DirecTV will carry the East Coast SHO HDTV channel beginning April 30.

SHO HDTV is the third high-definition channel to be carried on the DirecTV service and will be available 24 hours a day on DirecTV channel 543. Showtime Networks has two dedicated HDTV channels and broadcasts in 1080i.

"The addition of SHO HD gives consumers another opportunity to receive quality programming in high-definition format directly in their homes," said Stephanie Campbell, senior vice president of programming for DirecTV. "Adding Showtime to this list enables us to expand our high-definition lineup with programming that the entire family can enjoy."

DirecTV will broadcast the SHO HDTV channel from its satellite at the 110 degree West Longitude (WL) orbital slot location. To receive this new channel, consumers may purchase an HDTV set with a built-in DirecTV system receiver or a DirecTV-enabled HD set-top receiver and an multi-satellite dish with three LNBs. In addition, customers will also need to subscribe to one of DirecTV's programming packages plus the "Showtime Unlimited" package.
