DirecTV has added another brand to its roster of upcoming HD networks: History Channel HD.
The satellite provider and network jointly announced the news this week, marking the first distribution agreement for the long-planned History Channel simulcast.
DirecTV said it will premiere the 24-hour channel in September, a month that has increasingly been referenced by the service provider as a target period for expanding its HD lineup.
“The History Channel HD will give our history fanatics an unparalleled view of history with stunning clarity and rich perspective that they will find nowhere else on the television landscape,” read a History Channel statement. “We look forward to many more partnerships with distributors to bring The History Channel HD to their consumers.”
The History Channel HD will simulcast the History Channel lineup of original non-fiction series and specials. The channel is owned by A&E Networks, whose A&E HD will also launch in September on the service.
September also marks the planned launch of the similarly themed Smithsonian Networks HD channel from Showtime. A spokesman for Showtime said a carriage agreement for the channel will be announced soon.

  5. I have to say that I concur with the sentiments about getting AOL as selection one particular. The comments posted along facet it sum it up nicely, that it does absolutely nothing to strengthen the brand, but only adds confusion.Out of the most effective rebrands inside l ist, I’d place SyFy at the prime. At first I hated the title, mainly because I thought they did it ??just because,??? when in fact that they had to change their identify due to currently being unable to legally use Sci-fi.??? Now relatively than coming up that has a whole new title that nobody would know- and perhaps lose quite a bit from the previously built in SciFi??? brand- they stuck together with the aged name that has a bit of phrase play. I can nevertheless call SyFy Sci-fi when it comes up, and that helps make me joyful.

  6. Interesting thoughts here. I appreciate you taking the time to share them with us all. It’s people like you that make my day 🙂
