GRAND JUNCTION - Bresnan Communications costumers will once again be left in the dark for the second game of the Colorado Rockies season this spring.

Fox Sports-Rocky Mountain will air 150 Rockies games this season, 24 of them at an additional cost to FSN-RM carriers. Direct-TV and Dish Net customers will be able to see all 150 games, but Bresnan Communications declined the offer to air the additional 24 games due to increased costs that would be acquired by both the company and its subscribers.

11 Sports Director Sam Farnsworth spoke with sources that are very familiar with the situation on Tuesday and discovered that it would only cost Bresnan subscribers less than $2.00 per year to be able to watch the blacked out games.

11 Sports also contacted Fox Sports on Tuesday and was told that Bresnan Communications can choose to pickup the remaining blacked out games at any time during the season.

Games initially scheduled for blackout are still subject to change pending final decision by Fox Sports.
