Disney To Launch HD Networks on DirecTV

The Mickey Mouse Studio plans on release 4 HD channels to DirectTV in 2008. You can expect to find ABC FamilyHD, Disney Channel HD, ESPNEWS HD and Toon Disney HD. Well some HD is better then none I guess. I am not sure I would pay extra to see these channels in HD or not. I would be more interested in a Disney Movie Channel HD. Aladdin in HD anyone?

From the article:

Disney will launch hi-def simulcasts of kids' entertainment networks Disney Channel and Toon Disney early next year, as well as an HD simulcast of ABC Family.

In addition, Disney announced that this month DirecTV will began carrying Spanish-language network ESPN Deportes. The 24-hour sports network will be available to DirecTV's approximately 1 million U.S. Hispanic customers nationwide and to its DirecTV Latin America customers in Puerto Rico.
