Altitude Sports Network announced yesterday that they have signed a new partnership with FuboTV. The service, which is strictly an online service, will bring another way for the Colorado Avalanche to be viewed in the region. An ongoing dispute with Dish Network and Comcast since September 2019 has made it so the Avalanche are not available on two of the major carriers in the Denver metro area. Comcast and Altitude have met only twice by court ordered mediation to resolve to dispute with no resolution.
“We’re thrilled to expand FuboTV’s leading sports coverage with the addition of Altitude Sports and bring fans of the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets and Colorado Mammoth an affordable streaming option in the seasons ahead. FuboTV is a leading choice for hometown sports, alongside our national and international sports coverage. Today’s distribution partnership means fans across the Rockies will be able to stream all available home games for some of the most loved teams in the region.” said Todd Mathers, senior vice president, content strategy and acquisition of FuboTV.
“We couldn’t be more excited that Altitude Sports will be added to FuboTV’s Pro Package. FuboTV becomes the newest streaming option for our fans as we continue to expand Altitude’s distribution throughout the Rocky Mountain Region. Best of all, FuboTV values those fans and provides them a great option for following their hometown teams.” said Matt Hutchings, president & CEO of KSE Media Ventures.
Since the dispute with Comcast and Dish have begun, Altitude has signed several carriage agreements with other providers. DirecTV and Evoka TV were the latest in those agreements. Evoka TV is a newer television provider to the metro area with prices as low 35 dollars per month with equipment.
This new agreement with FuboTV has prices that range from 69.99 to 99.99 and gives a little more channel variety. They also have multiple screen options and dvr options for additional costs. The point is, they bring more options to the table if you want to not have the equipment. All you need is an internet connection, wifi, and a smart tv if you want to watch on a tv. No bulky box required.
