Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies are facing a crisis as they have to find a new broadcasting partner.
The Denver Post, a leading Colorado media outlet, cited sources on the 6th (Korean time) and reported the suspension of operation of AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain, the broadcaster hosting the Rockies.
According to this, the broadcasting company notified its employees that it plans to operate the broadcasting station only until October 6, local time.
This was expected. Warner Bros. Discovery, which owns AT&T Sportsnet, previously notified teams with broadcasting rights contracts of its intention to terminate the contracts in March.
They signed broadcasting rights contracts with Colorado, the Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Seattle Mariners. A broadcasting company was established in collaboration with Seattle.
The Colorado team is in a situation where it must immediately find a new broadcasting partner for the 2024 season.바카라사이트
There are two options presented by the Denver Post.
The first is to find a new partner. They proposed Altitude Sports & Entertainment, which holds the broadcasting rights for Colorado-based teams such as the Nuggets (NBA), Avellance (NHL), Rapids (MLS), and Mammoth (lacrosse), as a new partner.
Altitude Sports & Entertainment is a company owned by businessman Stan Kroenke. Kroenke is also the owner of sports teams in Colorado that the company has broadcasting rights contracts with. He is also known as the owner of NFL club LA Rams and English Premier League club Arsenal.
Another option is to self-broadcast through a streaming service without a broadcasting rights contract. Currently, the San Diego Padres, a team from the same district, are broadcasting in this way.
