Altitude Sports and Entertainment is a regional sports network that serves the Rocky Mountain region, specifically Denver. It officially launched on Sept. 4, 2004.

It was launched by Stan Kroenke, who owns the Denver Nuggets of the NBA, the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL, the Colorado Rapids of MLS, the Colorado Mammoth of the NLL, and Arsenal FC of the EPL. Altitude features in-depth coverage of all four of these teams, including broadcasting the majority of the Avalanche and Nuggets games and Rapids matches. Entertainment programming includes live theatre and music concerts.

Altitude is also home to the Colorado Rockies Triple A Baseball affiliate (Colorado Springs Sky Sox) and the Colorado Eagles of the Central Hockey League.

Bill Owens, the former governor of Colorado, hosted a talk show on the network during the final two years of his administration. Also in the Altitude lineup is a simulcast of a radio show co-hosted by veteran basketball referee Irv Brown.

Altitude also has an overflow channel for when game times overlap called Altitude 2.
