In some excellent news, the University of Denver department of athletics announced via Twitter that it will expand its partnership with Altitude TV, effective almost immediately. Coming off a year when most DU athletic events weren’t televised thanks to ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain’s inability to implement flexible scheduling, DU likely wanted a way to maximize its television reach.
The newly expanded partnership means that in addition to the volleyball, soccer, and lacrosse games already scheduled to be televised by Altitude, DU’s hockey and basketball programs will be featured on the Kroenke Sports and Entertainment-owned network.
Because both the Nuggets and Avalanche are featured on Altitude’s two networks (ALT & ALT2) on a nearly daily basis, it’s impossible to televise every game on DU’s schedule. However, Altitude was still able to pick up the role that ROOT has frequently neglected over the past few years.
The partnership means that 16 DU hockey games will now be televised between Altitude, CBS Sports, and ASN this year. It also means that 10 men’s basketball games and one women’s basketball game will now be on tv.
