DIRECTV, Inc., the nation's leading satellite
television service provider, is now offering local HD programming to
customers in the Green Bay, Wisc., Greensboro, N.C., Grand Rapids,
Mich. and Providence, R.I. DMAs. With the addition of these four

to launch an additional eight HD local markets throughout the remainder

expansion of HD programming that will culminate in 2007, when DIRECTV
will have the ability to deliver more than 1,500 local HD channels and
more than 150 national HD channels, establishing DIRECTV as a leading
provider of HD programming.
