Even if my setup wasn't in storage, I wouldn't have known since I didn't have 100 on my favorite channel list.
DIRECTV has launched a dedicated 24/7 “Hurricane Katrina Information” center on channel 100. This channel provides information on hurricane relief and recovery efforts for evacuees in shelters, as well as for DIRECTV viewers nationwide.
This information channel lets viewers send text messages to family and friends separated by the hurricane. Messages are scrolled across the bottom of the television screen. To place a message on this channel, viewers can send an e-mail message to email@example.com or send a text message via their cellular phone directly to text code “48433.”
