What channel is NBA TV?


The NBA Playoffs are well underway and with so many games being played in the first round, all of the NBA networks are being used to make sure that each game is televised. But while we all know what ABC, ESPN and TNT are, not everyone knows what NBA TV is, which annually broadcasts a few games each postseason.

Tonight, the Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets will be on NBA TV meaning that a large portion of the country will not be able to see the game. Unlike ESPN or even TNT, you have to order NBA TV a la carte from your cable provider unless it’s already included in your package.

If you don’t know what channel it is, you probably don’t have access to the network but you can always double check with your cable provider to be completely sure. If you have DirecTV then flip on over to channel 216 to see if you have access to the channel or not.
