A deal finally was reached Friday afternoon between AT&T SportsNet and Cox Communications, allowing all cable subscribers in Southern Nevada to watch the Golden Knights games.
The deal ended a stalemate of more than four months, and was announced less than an hour before the team’s first game in franchise history.
“We are excited to be able to announce this deal with Cox and bring the Vegas Golden Knights games to their customers in Las Vegas and surrounding areas,” said Nina Kinch, vice president of affiliate relations for AT&T SportsNet. “We are anxious to see the team perform and looking forward to viewers having access to our network and Emmy Award winning productions.”
The Golden Knights are in Dallas to take on the Stars tonight at American Airlines Center. The game starts at 5:30 p.m. and fans will be able to watch it on channel 96.
Starting with Saturday's game against the Arizona Coyotes, and every game thereafter, AT&T SportsNet will be shown on Cox channel 313 for standard definition and 1313 for high definition.
“We would like to thank both AT&T SportsNet and Cox for their commitment and dedication to reaching an agreement,” said Vegas Golden Knights chairman and CEO Bill Foley. “There was a significant amount of work put in from both sides and we are appreciative of these efforts. Cox subscribers will now be able to enjoy the excitement of Golden Knights hockey on AT&T SportsNet beginning tonight for our historic, inaugural game against the Dallas Stars.”
The channel is now available on all major cable and satellite providers in Southern Nevada:
CenturyLink Prism 1760
Dish Network 5414
Cox 96 (tonight) and 313 (moving forward)
