Outdoor Channel Moves to Comcast’s Digital Basic Tier in Colorado


Outdoor Channel will move from Comcast’s sports and entertainment tier to its digital basic tier on the operator’s digital cable systems in Colorado, beginning Nov. 4.

“We are thrilled that Outdoor Channel's strengthened affiliation with Comcast will provide more viewers throughout Colorado with America's leading hunting, fishing and other outdoor-related programming,” Thomas Hornish, Outdoor Channel’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, said in a statement. “Having completed our carriage negotiations with Comcast on the corporate level earlier this year, we are now working closely at the regional level to demonstrate the added value that our improved network now brings to each system.”

Outdoor Channel estimates the switch will result in an additional 250,000 subscribers, but cannot predict the impact, if any, such additional paying subscribers may have on Outdoor Channel's Nielsen Universe Estimate.
