DIRECTV Adding 3 More HD Channels
By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (March 19, 2013) - DIRECTV has alerted some subscribers via e-mails that it will add Oprah Winfrey's OWN channel in High=Definition this spring, perhaps as early as the first week of April.

The satcaster had already announced that it will also add Fox Sports San Diego as a full-time HD channel on April 1, in time for the first regular season game of the San Diego Padres. And it recently added Univision Deportes in HD on channel 455.

The decision to launch OWN in high-def is part of DIRECTV's move to switch the Oprah network to a higher-fee programming package (base Choice and above.) In addition to the e-mail,, a message board favored by DIRECTV employees, is saying that OWN will be added in HD on April 1.

Dish, AT&T, Cablevision and Bright House Networks now carry OWN in HD in all markets while Time Warner Cable, Charter and Cox carry the high-def edition in some markets
