Although it looks like the service providing the most HD channels is forever in dispute, it is hard to argue with unbiased critiques that conclude that DirecTV's number of HD channels are numbered at 78 and DISH’s HD channels at 84 as of November, 2009. Although you may hear numbers like "over 100" or "more than 130" in industry commercials, those totals are frequently inflated by considering local sports channels and pay-per-view event channels. When the majority of people are including HD channels, they are probably not including those sorts of channels.
