Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies have agreed a multi-year extension of their local TV rights deal with AT&T SportsNet, though the length of the new term and additional dollars involved have not been disclosed.

The Rockies had been under contract with AT&T SportsNet through the 2020 season. But the new term will keep at least 150 Rockies games per season broadcast in the club’s five-state television territory for the foreseeable future. 

The deal arrives as the Rockies’ crosstown pro sports neighbors, the Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association and Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League, have seen their regional sports network, Altitude Sports, locked in a bitter carriage dispute with local distributors.

“We have a long history of working together to bring Rockies fans exclusive coverage of their favorite team, and we look forward to continuing to do so for years to come,” said Patrick Crumb, AT&T Sports Networks president. 

The Rockies’ longtime TV announcing crew led by Drew Goodman and Jeff Huson remains intact.
