DENVER — After a two-month dispute, Altitude TV and DirecTV has agreed to a multi-year deal to bring the channel back to subscribers.

According to a tweet by Altitude Sports, CEO and President of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment Jim Martin released the following statement: "Altitude and AT&T/DIRECTV thank local sports fans for their patience while they worked toward this new agreement."

No financial terms were released in the statement.

As of late Thursday night, the regional sports network still did not have a deal in place with the two other major television distributors Comcast and Dish Network.

DirecTV will begin airing Colorado Avalanche and Denver Nuggets games on Altitude TV starting on Friday.
