Established in 1972 as the Quebec Nordiques before relocating to Denver, Colorado, in 1995, the Colorado Avalanche have consistently displayed their prowess on the ice and garnered a devoted fan base known as the “Avs Nation.” The team calls the Ball Arena in Denver its home, where the excitement of every game is palpable. Over the years, the Avalanche have constructed a legacy founded on skill, resilience, and an unwavering commitment to victory. With their distinctive burgundy, blue, and silver colors, and a history that includes multiple championships and iconic players, the Colorado Avalanche have left an enduring mark on the NHL landscape.
This article will explore how to stream Avalanche games live and the channels and streaming services that enable hockey fans to get a Avalanche live stream.
What channels show the Colorado Avalanche games?
The vast majority of Avalanche live streams air on a regional sports network, Altitude. Unfortunately, this makes it slightly difficult to find as streaming services tend to have varying regional coverage. DIRECTV STREAM and Fubo are the only streaming services that include Altitude for local viewers. ESPN+ airs out-of-market games and Hulu streams some games nationally. ESPN, ABC, NHL Network, and TNT will also air NHL games nationally.
