The HD feed can be found on DIRECTV’s channel 345. RFD offers a mix of programming of special interest to rural residents.  (Pictured above: Penny Gilley, star of RFD’s Penny Gilley Show.)

“It’s no secret that consumers now require that all of their television choices be available in high-definition to even be considered for extended viewing,” the RFD press release stated. “We expect this to result in a spike in RFD-TV’s ratings for all of our quality rural lifestyle programming.”

AT&T, which owns DIRECTV, was already carrying the HD version of RFD on its U-verse TV service, and DIRECTV Now, the company’s live streaming service, launched with RFD HD in its lineup last November.
