Altitude Sports Blacked Out On Several Major Distributors
Altitude Sports remains blacked out on Comcast and DirecTV after the RSN's "long-running deal" with those distributors expired, with "no deal in place" by the deadline of midnight Sunday. One source "described the two sides as 'not close.'" This comes after Altitude late last week "was dropped by Dish Network." At issue is the distributors’ "insistence that Altitude isn’t widely watched by their subscriber base, thus making the carriage cost an unfair burden on the majority of their customers" (DENVER POST, 9/2).
