DIRECTV adds local HD markets

Satellite television provider DIRECTV has added local HD markets in the Lincoln, Nebraska and Rochester, New York areas today.

The additional local HD channels are part of DIRECTV’s goal of adding 44 new HD channels by the end of 2008. The company expects to be able to provide local HD channels in 121 cities.
