Altitude Inks Multiyear Extension with Comcast

Altitude Sports & Entertainment has reached a multiyear afflliate extension with Comcast Cable.

The deal, financial terms of which were not disclosed, covers the nation's leading distributor's systems in Colorado and Utah. Through a 10-year pact, Comcast has been a leading carrier of Atltitude, which airs games involving the National Basketball Association's Denver Nuggets, the National Hockey League's Colorado Avalanche, the National Lacrosse League's Colorado Mammoth and Major League Soccer's Colorado Rapids, since its launch in 2004. This agreement marks Comcast's second with the RSN.

“Comcast was instrumental in the launch of Altitude almost 10 years ago and I am very pleased to announce the continuation of our affiliation," said Kim Carver, president and CEO of Altitude Sports & Entertainment. " We are looking forward to continuing what has been a great working relationship.”

Altitude counts some 3.1 million subscribers in its 10-state TV territory.
