Good Saturday to all. Not a cloud in the sky, temperatures in the 70s. I like it. Not such a sunny scenario remains the vituperativeness between Altitude and Comcast. In announcing their 69-game broadcast schedule for Avalanche games this season, Altitude also took the opportunity to blast Comcast (and DISH Network) again.
“Comcast and Dish continue to deny thousands of fans across a 10-state region access to their hometown teams for a third straight season—even as fan interest has never been stronger. Altitude remains committed to representing the interests of all our fans”, said KSE Chief Operating Officer Matt Hutchings. “Both Comcast and DISH Network remain steadfast in demanding terms that would put Altitude out of business and in the process, raise prices for our fans to watch their local teams—something we won’t allow.”
It’s the exact same story between these two. I can’t believe it any more than you can. I’m a Comcast subscriber too.
- Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes. Two of the three big RFAs are still unsigned, and both play with the Vancouver Canucks. Yeah, the concern is definitely growing in Vancouver.

- Sportsnet: The story that could rock the NHL and Chicago Blackhawks is moving along…The investigation into sexual assault and the alleged coverup has a new witness. A former Blackhawks player is now speaking to investigators.
