DIRECTV now offers 16 sports networks in HD

DIRECTV is now offering the NBA TV channel in HD as part of its goal to offer 100 HD channels by the end of this year. With the addition of NBC TV HD, the direct-to-home satellite TV provider now offers 74 HD channels, including 16 sports networks.

The NBA TV HD channel will feature more than 72 games and other NBA programming in HD and will be available to subscribers on channel 601.

DIRECTV has been aggressively marketing its HD offerings to differentiate itself from cable companies that on average offer far fewer linear channels in HD.
