Nuggets Ratings Gain Altitude


Altitude Sports & Entertainment said its Denver Nuggets National Basketball Association game telecasts have seen their ratings rise each month of the season.

The regional sports network added that Nuggets ratings to date for February are higher than ratings for the team’s contests last February, when Fox Sports Rocky Mountain held the rights.

Nuggets games posted a 1.8 in November, a 1.9 in December and a 2.4 in January, Altitude said, adding that to date in February, the contests are up to a 3.0.

“This is a testament to the ever-increasing appeal of the Nuggets and the growing awareness and acceptance of Altitude by Colorado fans and viewers,” Altitude CEO Jim Martin said in a prepared statement.

“To increase each month -- and, ultimately, to surpass a regional sports network that has been in the market for 15 years -- is an achievement we never even thought about,” he added.
