A new agreement with Pursuit Media adds more outdoor content to the SmartGuide lineup.
FreeCast is announcing a partnership with Pursuit Media LLC to bring the popular outdoor network, the Pursuit Channel, to SelectTV’s SmartGuide. The aggregated streaming service has been rapidly adding Free Ad-Supported Television (FAST) channels, creating a digital dial of channels to rival even large cable packages. These linear channels are paired with thousands of on-demand shows and movies, as well as the ability to integrate other subscription video services, to create a one-stop-shop for streaming.
Catering to the outdoor community and America’s heartland, the Pursuit Channel features programming related to hunting, fishing, and shooting. Created in 2007, the channel is currently carried by several major cable and satellite TV providers, and enjoys a strong following on several OTT platforms as well.
“This is such a tremendous opportunity for Pursuit Channel” says Rusty Faulk, Founder and CEO of Pursuit Media. “We are so proud of our network and all of our programming partners that help us promote conservation and celebrate the outdoors lifestyle that we love so dearly. Being a part of SelectTV’s amazing platform to reach even more people with our message is truly a blessing” he continues.
FreeCast’s Executive Vice President of Digital Content and Channel Distribution, Tracy West, discussed the addition of the channel to SelectTV: “We know our customers enjoy outdoor channels and shows. Adding the Pursuit Channel to our already strong outdoor line-up is a great addition. “
