    If the channel providers want to move to an app instead of MVPDs that is fine ... but it would be good if they allowed their app to run on MVPD equipment.

    No. Apps are dumb and flipping around between a million different apps is not user-friendly for watching TV.

    I'm wondering if we will get a 4k full time channel from them or just 4k during live games like they have had in the past.

    Zero chance of a full time 4K regional sports network, particularly one in a mid-sized market w/o baseball.

    I wonder how many Comcast & Dish subs in this market will now flock to DirecTV since they have Altitude back :rolleyes:

    Not this one. Could give a rats axx about Nuggets and Avalanche. Figured AT&T would cave in on this. Watch the bills go up now!

    Last night Altitude put the Avalanche game on KTVD channel 20 again. The entire game was nothing but a bashing of Comcast and Dish Network including telling viewers to switch providers. I think that was the only reason it was televised. But boy do they love AT&T/DirecTV now!

    I wonder if we’ll start seeing AT&T advertising and sponsorship in the stadiums soon? ;)

    What was funny was a Xfinity ad on the boards inside the rink while they were bashing Comcast.

    I was watching a game on NHL Center Ice after D* restored Altitude I found it hilarious they would have a message praising D* & AT&T then moments later bash Comcast / Dish
