New Berlin, Wisconsin – August 5, 2013 – Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, announced the launch of Sportsman HD in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market with Comcast Cable. Sportsman HD is available on channel 914 and will now serve this very dynamic Minnesota market where approximately one in three residents are active sportsmen and women.
Sportsman Channel’s programming offerings include many of the industry’s leading series as well as ground-breaking lifestyle and adventure shows, like Meet the McMillans and Gun It with Benny Spies, as well as the first-ever news-talk TV series for the outdoors genre called NRANEWS Cam & Co. The programming matches the network’s drive to present more of the lifestyle of people who love – and live – to hunt, shoot and fish, including stories about travel, adventure, survival, cooking and eating, work, family, collecting and more.
