Altitude Sports Added To NextGen Pay-TV Service


For fans of Denver-based pro and collegiate sports teams that have rights agreements with Altitude Sports, watching play-by-play while at home has been a frustration for those who are Comcast subscribers for more than two years. The two parties have been sparring over a carriage agreement, and on December 17 mediation was agreed to. Meanwhile, DISH has also been unable to secure a new rights agreement with Altitude.

As such, DirecTV is today the lone home in the Denver DMA for Altitude Sports, as Charter’s Spectrum service, which Altitude has a deal with, is not available.

A “revolutionary” NextGen television service could bring Altitude for those who don’t wish to wait for a possible deal with Comcast.
