Watch The Disney Channel in HD

This past week three new HD channels were added to the lineup of Direct TV HD programming. Disney Channel HD was among those three channels and is a big win for children of all ages. This channel’s first broadcast was in April of 1983 and it has been going strong ever since. The Disney Channel shows a variety of general entertainment series for all ages. Hannah Montana is a favored series of young girls and tweens. Other channel favorites are The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Wizards of Waverly Place, High School Musical 2 and Cory in the House. Disney Channel also broadcasts some animated series such as Phineas and Ferb, The Emperor’s New School, and The Replacements.

This delightful channel has a large following of fans of all ages. Hannah Montana and High School Musical have been so popular that their live shows are sold out soon after tickets go on sale. Whether you prefer classic characters such as Mickey Mouse and Pooh or new favorites such as Lilo and Dave the Barbarian there is something for everyone.

An added bonus of this channel is the ability to catch a Disney movie on occasion. Disney has numerous family movie choices from animated flicks such as Cinderella and Snow White to live-action movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean.

All of the programming on Disney Channel HD is broadcast in high-definition which is a digital experience unlike any other. The picture quality is so impressive that even the smallest detail can be seen with great clarity. Combine the realistic pictures with amazing digital audio and you can imagine yourself directly on the set. Watching Disney Channel HD on a large screen HDTV turns your family room into your very own Disney amphitheater.

Disney is one of the leading providers of animated series and movies. Their live programming makes every child feel like they too can be a star. Family programming at its finest can be found on Direct TV with the first airing of the Disney Channel in high-definition on Direct TV HD channel 290.

The provider continues to blow away the competition with the addition of more and more high-definition channels. The successful launch of their recent satellite, DIRECTV-11, combined with the failed launch by Dish Network have fueled increased interest in the top satellite TV provider in the country.
