Outdoor Channel 2 HD Testing


The Outdoor Channel said Wednesday that it has successfully begun broadcasting a sneak preview of Outdoor Channel 2 HD's original programs.

Using technology provided by Scientific-Atlanta Inc. and capacity on PanAmSat Corp.'s “Galaxy 10R” satellite, the programmer began broadcasting the HD test signal Dec. 29.

The test signal included upcoming Outdoor Channel 2 HD shows such as Discovering America's National Parks, Cowboys and World Class Sportfishing.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of the test signal broadcast," Outdoor vice president of operations Gene Brookhart said in a prepared statement. "Scientific-Atlanta and PanAmSat have both been vital in this phase of our development, and we look forward to the continued excellence of their support as we approach the launch of the new HD channel.”
