Outdoor Channel strikes Com Hem deal

Chellomedia’s Outdoor Channel has signed its second carriage deal in Sweden.

The channel, which is operated by Chellomedia’s Chello Zone unit, will be available on Com Hem’s network. A HD version of Outdoor Channel will be available and content from the network will be added to Com Hem’s seven-day catch-up service.

The channel launched in Sweden last year on Teliasonera’s IPTV service.

Louise Cottrell, vice-president affiliate sales for Chello Zone, said, “I am delighted that we have increased our distribution of Outdoor Channel onto a new platform in Scandinavia. The channel has already proved popular with audiences in the region so I am delighted that even more viewers can now experience the great outdoors through the eyes of world-renowned experts, passionate enthusiasts and celebrities.”
