DENVER (CBS4) – Gov. Jared Polis is working on getting Colorado sports fans their teams back on TV. Games have not been broadcast to Comcast and DISH customers for weeks.
The regional sports channel’s standoff with Comcast, DirecTV, and DISH started in September when the separate parties couldn’t come to an agreement in contract renewal talks.READ MORE: Park Hill Residents File Lawsuit Against Safe Outdoor Space For Homeless In Church Parking Lot

As Governor, I strongly encourage you to complete a deal immediately that allows us to watch our Colorado teams at home on DISH and Comcast. This has simply gone on for too long.”MORE NEWS: Colorado's Comeback: Moviegoers Return To Regal Theatres Amid COVID Safety Protocols
