DirecTV viewers,
Many of you have written KLRU wondering why you can’t watch KLRU in HD. For now DirecTV is downconverting our HD signal to provide KLRU on their system. This step was taken recently so they could continue to provide our channel after the impending demise of analog. They do not, yet, have the technical infrastructure in place to provide our signal in HD. They are working through the top 50 markets, transitioning each one to HD, and have not done the Austin market yet. When asked about the time frame for our transition and they could not give a specific date.
