Where is Altitude Sports available?

Altitude Sports is available within a 10-State territory of the Rocky Mountain Region including: Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Northern New Mexico (Albuquerque/Santa Fe), Northeast Nevada and Southwest South Dakota (Rapids City-DMA).

Availability in these states is based on NBA and NHL territorial restrictions which determine where Avalanche and Nuggets games can be distributed. Outside of the Altitude Sports territory, Altitude Sports is available in regional Sports Packs (anywhere in the U.S. that DirecTV service is offered), however all Avalanche and Nuggets games will be blacked out. All other Altitude Sports programming is available in these areas.

Colorado Avalanche games are available in the following areas: Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas (except for Kansas City), Nebraska, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Northern New Mexico and Northeastern Nevada.

Denver Nuggets games are available in the following areas: Colorado, Wyoming (except for Evanston), Nebraska, Kansas, Northern New Mexico and Southwestern South Dakota. Collegiate game blackouts are determined on a game-by-game basis

How do I find out what channel Altitude Sports is on?

To find out what channel Altitude Sports is with your provider, please use our How To Watch Altitude Sports tool with your five-digit zip code. 

What happens if there is a Nuggets game and an Avalanche game scheduled at the same time?

If you are in an area that receives both Avalanche and Nuggets games, Altitude Sports will carry one game on the primary Altitude channel and will offer the other game on an secondary Altitude channel called Altitude 2.

If you are in a territory that cannot receive the Avalanche you will receive the Nuggets game. If you are in a territory that cannot receive the Nuggets you will receive the Avalanche game.

The NHL, NBA, and some college conferences place territorial restrictions on the distribution of certain teams or games. Altitude Sports and its video distributors must follow these mandated territorial restrictions, which is why you may not receive a specific game, depending on your location.

Is Altitude Sports available on Video-On-Demand?

Yes. Altitude Sports provides VOD programming. Please check with your local cable provider to determine if VOD is available in your area, and if they distribute Altitude Sports in VOD offerings.
