RLTV has signed a carriage pact with Buckeye CableSystem.
Under the deal, financial terms of which were not disclosed, the network aimed at those 50 and older will become available Dec. 15 to Buckeye digital basis subscribers on channel 160. At that point, RLTV will be accessible to the MSO's subscribers in Toledo, Sandusky and other areas of Ohio. Buckeye is a wholly owned subsidiary of Block Communications.
"We are honored to help deliver relevant programming to Buckeye's 50+ customers and are grateful for Buckeye's support and belief in our audience," said RLTV affiliate sales and corporate development Patrick Baldwin.
"Adding Buckeye as an affiliate partner is an opportunity to go beyond the television and serve Toledo and Sandusky's consumers with a grassroots approach," said Sara Timmins, RLTV director of distribution.
"RLTV offers unique and high-quality programming that is targeted to an audience that represents a significant segment of our country's population. We are excited to add RLTV to our programming lineup," said Jeff Abbas, Buckeye CableSystem president and general manager.
