New channels on DirecTV-14 and DirecTV-15 satellites?
Posted 06 January 2012 - 02:29 PM
I presume they may add more 1080p and/or 3D channels. However, I could be wrong.

E!, TruTvHD, Style HD, TCM HD, BBCAHD, Investigation Discovery HD, Hub HD, OWN HD and so on.
But I bet we will not see many new channels.

Satillites age and do come to an end. One or both of these may simply be to replace the aged ones and will bring little more capacity to the system.
DirecTV's oldest satelite is DirecTV-1R, launched in 1999. Perhaps either DirecTV-14 or DirecTV-15 will replace it.

It seems destined for 99 and will immediately provide additional ka tps for more channel. What channels that capacity will be used to add is anyones guess but last I looked there was currently space to add a few more channels. You can find some info on that at:
