Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche fans finally have a streaming service that will carry their games live. The Altitude Sports Network is available as a channel on the live TV streaming services, DIRECTV STREAM and fuboTV.
How To Stream Altitude Sports
Two live streaming services offer Altitude in their channel lineup, DIRECTV STREAM and FuboTV. However, you have to live in their broadcast area in the Denver TV market. This is true whether watching Altitude through cable TV or a TV streaming service. I prefer using DIRECTV STREAM to watch Altitude as the service has a better channel offering than fuboTV at a similar price point. However, fuboTV is a fine streaming service if you decide to use them after reading my coverage of both services below.
You can watch Altitude through DIRECTV STREAM and live in the Denver TV market. You have to subscribe to their “Choice” package for $108.99 per month. You get a 5-day free trial; they don’t force you into a contract, and you can cancel anytime. If you cancel during the trial, you won’t be charged for the first month.
Channels: Those living in the Altitude TV market will have Altitude through the DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” plan, along with other sports channels like ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, FS1, FS2, MLB Network, and NBA TV. The service also includes local networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox. The channel lineup also includes entertainment channel favorites like History Channel, HGTV, TLC, and more. The Choice plan includes over 90 channels in all. You can see the full DIRECTV STREAM channel lineup in our review of DIRECTV STREAM.
DIRECTV STREAM Choice Deal: After a 5-day free trial, the DIRECTV STREAM Choice plan costs $108.99 per month. You can sign up on the DIRECTV STREAM website. There is no long term contract and you can can cancel at any time.
