“This is an important step for ROOT SPORTS and great news for Rockies fans,” said Patrick Crumb, president of AT&T Sports Networks, which owns and operates ROOT SPORTS. “We will continue to work toward expanding our streaming rights portfolio so fans will have additional ways to watch the sports content they love.”
“The fact that Rockies fans will be able to watch games in-market on their own devices is great news,” said Colorado Rockies Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Greg Feasel. “We commend MLBAM and ROOT SPORTS for working together to give our fans this greatly improved access to Rockies baseball throughout the 2017 season and beyond.”
AT&T Sports Networks’ addition of Rockies authenticated in-market streaming rights is part of its ongoing effort to make sports content available to fans in new and convenient ways.
To stream Rockies games, viewers must be current customers with one of the authenticated ROOT SPORTS distributors and subscribe to a level of service that includes the regional sports network. For the 2017 season, games will be made available to the distributors to stream to their authenticated customers and MLBAM will authenticate ROOT SPORTS viewers on MLB.com, ColoradoRockies.com and MLB At Bat, as ROOT SPORTS continues to develop a platform of their own to deliver the games to viewers.
