Altitude Sickness: DISH Drop Precedes Comcast, AT&T ‘Blackouts’


Don’t think for a minute that television broadcasting companies are the only ones tangling with MVPDs over new rights agreements.

Two other big blackouts were feared. They happened late Saturday, practically crippling Altitude Sports‘ reach across the Rocky Mountain West.
