DIRECTV HD Lineup

KVH TracVision systems provide full support for DIRECTV’s Ku-band standard and high-definition broadcasts. However, DIRECTV is in the process of moving its HDTV programming to new Ka-band satellites. Reception of Ka-band broadcasts requires larger antennas and additional equipment. As a result, KVH TracVision systems and all other domed mobile satellite TV antennas cannot support reception of DIRECTV’s new Ka-band HDTV broadcasts. For complete details regarding HDTV services and available channels in RVs, visit our HDTV web page.

The following is a list of HDTV channels currently available for DIRECTV's Ku-band satellites. In instances where there is an East and West feed, subscribers will receive only one of these feeds based on your subscription and location. Note: The channel lineup is subject to change. Please check with DIRECTV for most up-to-date information.
