DISH Network claims they have more HD channels than DIRECTV? Is this true?


Absolutely not. DISH Network claims they have 200 HD channels, but to get to that number they count part-time, game-only channels and 57 video-on-demand titles that aren't even channels. We're not the only ones to question their count. The industry experts also feel DISH Network is stretching the truth. More info

At DIRECTV, if a channel is in HD 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, then we count it as an HD channel, just like you would. It's that simple. We offer over 185 - more than any other satellite or cable provider, period.
