Additional DIRECTV CHOICETM package availability now includes:

  • Albuquerque-Santa Fe DMA in the state of Arizona
  • Cheyenne-Scotts Bluff DMA in the state of Nebraska
  • Denver DMA in the states of Nebraska and South Dakota
  • Rapid City DMA in the states of Montana, Nebraska, and South Dakota
  • Salt Lake City DMA in the state of Idaho

The Mtn. will also be carried on select DIRECTV MasTM (Spanish-language programming package) and MDU packages (multiple dwelling unit), available to residents of apartment complexes. Customers throughout the remainder of the county will be able to access The Mtn. with a subscription to DIRECTV’s SPORTS PACK.

Good news that the league is slowly but surely increasing their foot print, but Dish Network is a must to keep increasing coverage of the league and to get other cable providers to pick up the channel.   The best way is to get teams to win to get national attention.

  1. The Moutain West Sports Network will continue to grow. For those who live outside the footprint, you are not required to subscribe to Directv’s sport pack. You may simply add the sport pack on game day and remove following the game. Unlike Dish that charges five dollars to downgrade, Directv will only charge you for the few hours you have the sports pack.

    Eventually, the Mountain network will improve production and format. It’s great to have a network dedicated to MWC.

  2. Coug you are actually mistaken on that. DirecTv will now charger you a minimum of 10 per month if you order a premium channel like HBO etc, and if you cancel within 30 days or cancel after watching Saturdays game
