Looking forward to watching DU soccer, volleyball, hockey on TV this fall? Well, unfortunately, DU athletics are now off the air along with the rest of Altitude TV’s programming in its 10 state region if you have Comcast/Xfinity, DISHTV or Direct TV. And, Altitude TV claims that streaming content is not a feasible, economic option to do an ‘end run’ around the Big Three.
Altitude is also the home network for the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, NBA’s Denver Nuggets, MLS’ Colorado Rapids and NLL’s Colorado Mammoth. Should it last that long, the dispute ratchets up on October 3rd when the Colorado Avalanche are scheduled to return to Altitude’s lineup with their regular season opener and October 5th when DU hockey hits the ice.
Altitude’s coverage-area includes Colorado, Utah, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, South Dakota, and Wyoming. DirectTV and Dish Network also provide nationwide coverage for Pioneer Nation so this will impact all Pioneer fans.
There are roughly 49 Regional Sports Networks & Altitude has been singled out. No other RSN is being offered to take this rate cut and placed on a “tier”. Comcast has 7 regional Sports Networks and AT&T 4. NONE of them are being offered This deal ! #DontBlockMyAltitude

Naturally, our cable rates are not going down during the strike, even with the loss of these sports properties. So call your television provider and tell them, “Don’t Block My Pios!”
