ESPNU to Join DirecTV’s Choice Programming Tier
DirecTV will add ESPNU to its Choice programming package beginning July 1, giving ESPN’s college-sports network access to more than 46 million homes. The satellite-TV provider will also launch ESPNU HD by the end of the first quarter of 2010.
The two parties also announced that ESPN Classic will be repackaged into the DirecTV Sports Pack.
ESPNU will also be added to Comcast’s Digital Classic service level.
