AMC Networks International – Zone and M7 Group will launch Outdoor Channel HD in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Belgium and the Netherlands on September 15, 2015.

The deal marks the debut of a new, second Outdoor Channel feed which will initially be offered via CanalDigitaal in the Netherlands, TV Vlaanderen in Belgium, and Skylink in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The channel will be available on Astra at 23,5 degrees East.

“This expansion of Outdoor Channel in the region reflects the growing popularity of the channel and our dedication to reaching more audiences across EMEA,” said Mike Moriarty, managing director, AMC Networks International – Zone, Central Europe and DMC.

“Partnering with M7 allows us to bring the great outdoors into the homes of even more fans of outdoor pursuits so they can experience spectacular adventures through the eyes of our world-renowned experts, passionate enthusiasts and celebrities.”

“We are very pleased with the further extension of our long-standing business cooperation with AMC Networks International and welcome Outdoor Channel on board of our satellite platform,” commented Bill Wijdeveld, VP business development, M7 Group.

“While the addition of Outdoor Channel is great news for our Benelux and CEE satellite TV subscribers, M7 Platform Services is pleased to provide AMC Networks International with the possibility to use the same satellite signal for the secure third party channel delivery within Europe, including encryption, 24/7 quality monitoring and help desk support.”
