DISH Network is adding Outside Television to its “Multi-Sport Pack” of premium sports. The new channel is based on Outside Magazine.
“DISH is finding new ways to attract just the kinds of people who would rather make their own adventures rather than follow a more conventional path,” says Dennis Gillespie, senior vice president of distribution for Outside Television.
Outside Television is available to all DISH customers now through May 6 during a month-long free preview.
During the month, the channel will broadcast several of the most grueling trans-oceanic legs of the annual 38,739-nautical mile Volvo Ocean Race in “Life at the Extreme” and new season premieres of Outside Television’s series “Locals” and “Outlook: Icons Revealed.”
DISH has about 14 million subscribers.
