What are the best TV providers in Denver?
On top of all those sweet internet options, there are also cable and satellite TV providers in Denver that will hook you up with some solid TV options. Xfinity is the best TV provider in Denver, and it delivers some sweet cable TV and bundle packages. DIRECTV and DISH are also solid TV providers that both deliver satellite TV in Denver.
Xfinity’s X1 platform is both affordable and versatile, featuring cloud DVR and HD options as well as a remote that is so well designed it literally won an Emmy. (We’ve used it ourselves, and it’s dope.)
Depending on your X1 package, you can get up to 220 channels. Along with premium networks like HBO® and SHOWTIME®, Xfinity has the most sports channels out of any of the TV providers in the Mile High City. Even better, Xfinity’s new Sports Zone feature lets you keep track of your favorite teams—letting you stay on top of stats and schedules for Broncos, Nuggets, and Rockies games all in one place.
Even if you don’t want a TV subscription, you can get an Xfinity Flex streaming box free with a regular Xfinity internet subscription. The Flex’s Pluto TV app hooks it up with 24/7 broadcasts of old TV classics like Baywatch and Degrassi: The Next Generation. You can also use the Flex to rent or buy movies, such as Stanley Kubrick’s Rocky Mountain classic, The Shining.
As far as satellite TV goes, DIRECTV has some good stuff too. DIRECTV plans in Denver feature as many as 330 channels—including all the favorites like ESPN, HBO, and Cartoon Network. Many of the plans also come with the NBA League Pass, giving you access to dozens of NBA games each week.
DISH’s satellite TV packages come with ESPN as well as ESPNU, the channel devoted to college sports. This is the deal for all you ice hockey fans who want to watch the Denver Pioneers take on Colorado College for the Gold Pan.
