Sportsman widens net via Comcast


The Sportsman Channel, which touts itself as the first and only TV network dedicated exclusively to round-the-clock hunting and fishing programming, has launched in several Comcast Cable markets, including Tuscaloosa, Ala., Huntsville, Ala., Houma, La., and Laplace, La.

"With the continued growth of the hunting and fishing industry in the U.S., sportsmen in these markets are sure to find this new addition a hit," Sportsman president and CEO C. Michael Cooley said. The network, which launched in 2003, is in 15 million households on a full- and part-time basis.
