Where To Watch In Nevada And Arizona

In Las Vegas, you can watch ESPN on Cox in Las Vegas on Channel 30 and Channel 31 for ESPN2.  ESPN is also on Channel 1030 and ESPN2 is on Channel 1031 in Nevada.

For most cities in Arizona, channels 33 and 1033 are the right channels to watch ESPN.

This will work for most cities except for Tucson where the right channels for ESPN are 24 and 1024. If you want to watch ESPN 2 in AZ, you can do so in Tucson on Channel 24 and 1025 and on Channel 32 and 1032 in the other cities in Arizona.

We’ve noticed that Tucson has different channels from the rest of Arizona a couple of times when writing these articles.

By this point, you might have noticed that you can basically add a thousand and get to the other ESPN channel. The further out ESPN channel is the HD channel so if you’re not happy with your TV image quality go there.
