  • Dish Network does not carry Altitude 2 as a full-time service, but when bandwidth is available, provides live Altitude 2 games to their customers on a Sports Alternate channel. These channels change on a game-by-game basis, so please check your on-screen channel guide or on gamedays, check the homepage slide for a list of channel numbers for the game. Some Altitude 2 games are not available through Dish Network due to bandwidth constraints.

In Montana, Utah, Nevada, and non-Nuggets areas of Idaho:

  • Altitude 2 programming is not available in these areas as a full-time service or on another channel.
  • Because Altitude is prohibited by the NBA to deliver Nuggets game to these areas due to territorial restrictions, when Nuggets games are on these areas Altitude service will automatically be replaced by Altitude 2 programming.
