DENVER – Nuggets and Avalanche fans wanting to watch the teams on TV amid the Altitude Sports cable dispute will finally be able to tune in at a local bar – at least through the weekend.

Altitude owner Kroenke Sports is working with Front Range businesses to allow them to legally stream broadcasts of the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche.

In a news release sent Friday evening, an Altitude TV spokesperson said a list of schedules and locations would be announced in the coming days and advised fans to check the Altitude TV website for more information.

Altitude Sports has been unavailable for much of the Denver area for weeks now amid an ongoing dispute between the TV network and TV providers Comcast, Dish Network, and DirectTV.

The dispute is over re-transmission fees. Networks like Altitude provide content, in their case Avalanche, Nuggets, Rapids, and Mammoth games along with local programming. Television providers like Comcast, Dish Network, and DirecTV then pay the network for the right to broadcast their channel and its contents as part of their TV packages.
