Local channels go to HD on DirecTVPublished 9:26am Friday, November 9, 2012
Mower County DirecTV customers can now watch local channels in high definition.
DirecTV announced Thursday the following local broadcast channels for the Austin area are now available in HD: KIMT/CBS Channel 3, KAAL/ABC Channel 6, KTTC/NBC Channel 10, KSMQ2/PBS Channel 15-2, KYIN/PBS Channel 24 and KXLT/FOX Channel 47. These channels were only available in standard definition before the switch.
DirecTV says KSMQ/PBS Channel 15 will remain in standard definition.
The HD programming is automatically available — although additional fees may apply — to all DirecTV customers with H20 or HR20 DirecTV Plus HD-DVR receivers or above, and a Ka/Ku band dish. Eligibility for local channels is based on service addresses within designated-market areas, DirecTV says. Visit directv.com/locals for more information.
