DirecTV Working on Broadcasting Ultra HDTV Signals

1080p? That’s so last decade.big grin Direct TV is beginning work on pushing the envelope on high def signals in the 4000 and 8000 line resolutions. Don’t rush out to change your service over anytime soon, the technology will not be available for several years yet.

In order to enable the transition, DirecTV will continue moving away from Ku-band satellites within the next four to five years and change over to Ka-band to take advantage of higher bandwidth.
