We’re not completely out of the woods, but a huge hurdle in the race to get the Golden Knights in every home in the Vegas valley has been crossed.
CenturyLink announced today AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain will be added to their Prism TV channel lineup starting on September 15th. The channel will be available across every TV package CenturyLink provides, so Golden Knights games will immediately be available to all current Prism TV subscribers and new subscribers will not have to pay an added “sports package” fee to watch VGK games.
We are focused on providing Prism TV subscribers with the best entertainment choices, so it was very important to us to ensure that Vegas Golden Knights hockey and Mountain West Conference collegiate sports were part of the channel lineup for our Nevada subscribers. We look forward to offering our customers the premium sports content that AT&T SportsNet will provide. -Jeremy Ferkin, CenturyLink VP of Operations for Nevada
As for Cox, they still remain “in discussions” with AT&T SportsNet, the exclusive home for Golden Knights games on TV. #CoxBlocked
CenturyLink is currently the second largest cable provider in the valley, reportedly well behind Cox, however, they do offer service to every home in Las Vegas and Henderson. So now, even if Cox doesn’t reach an agreement, AT&T SportsNet is officially available to every household via CenturyLink’s PrismTV, DirecTV, and Dish Network.
AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain will be available on channel 760(SD)/1760(HD), available to all subscribers, starting one week from today.
