RockiesFSN Rocky Mountain and the Colorado Rockies have reached a long-term carriage extension that will see the Rockies on FSN through 2020 – 12 years.

As part of the agreement, FSN Rocky Mountain will have an exclusive deal. Since 2003 Denver’s KTVD-TV (Channel 20) has carried the Rockies, as well, but will no longer do so as part of the agreement with FSN. As reported by the Denver Business Journal:

The contract calls for FSN Rocky Mountain to carry 150 regular-season Rockies games each season through 2020, up from the current 125. The games will all be presented in high definition.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

FSN Rocky Mountain — formerly known as Fox Sports Net Rocky Mountain — is a regional unit of Bellevue, Wash.-based Liberty Sports Group, a division of John Malone’s Englewood-based Liberty Media Corp.

Liberty Media Corp purchased the Atlanta Braves in May of 2007.
