You can watch the Altitude Sports channel without a cable TV subscription.
DIRECTV STREAM is the only option for streaming in-market NBA games with the Denver Nuggets, and the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche.
Altitude Sports also carries Major League Soccer’s Colorado Rapids, and the National Lacrosse League’s Colorado Mammoth.
DIRECTV STREAM does cost more than competing services that live stream ESPN, or AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain.
The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $89.99 per month.
So if you’re looking to cut the cord, but still watch the NBA, NHL hockey, soccer or lacrosse games, you should consider whether the pros of watching Altitude Sports without cable outweigh its cons.
DIRECTV STREAM still has one advantage over paying for DISH or Spectrum. You can subscribe month to month and cancel whenever you want.
Subscribers can get three months of HBO Max, Cinemax, Showtime and EPIX for free before the regular rate kicks in.
The Choice bundle has a wide variety of sports channels including ESPN, ESPN2 and AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain.
All of your local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS and Telemundo channels are included. And you get top cable TV channels such as HGTV, ACC Network, TNT, History, CNN and A&E.
And you don’t need to pay for a cable box.

DIRECTV STREAM works on Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Google Chromecast, Apple TV and select Samsung Smart TVs.
Subscriptions run month to month and so you can cancel whenever you want.
