Sportsman Channel HD Reels In Rollouts On Cablevision's Big Sky Systems


Cablevision has initiated a phased in rollout of Sportsman Channel HD in its Big Sky systems.
The enhanced version of Sportsman Channel is now available on Cablevision's Optimum TV Family Package in Colorado, Montana, Wyoming and Utah.
Cablevision added these systems through its $1.37 billion purchase of Bresnan Communications last year. They serve 300,000 customers in the aforementioned states.
"We are proud that Optimum TV chose to put Sportsman Channel in its Family package in some of the most sportsmen-rich areas of the country, offering their customers more access to the only network exclusively focused on hunting, shooting and fishing," said Gavin Harvey, CEO, Sportsman Channel, in a statement. "Additionally, the rollout of Sportsman HD will provide many of Optimum TV's customers with the ultimate 'you are there' viewing experience. Sportsman Channel HD lets viewers feel like they are experiencing the outdoors right beside our series' hosts."
