GLENWOOD, Ala. – Pursuit Channel will expand its market-leading distribution coverage in the United States through a long-term carriage agreement with AT&T U-verse. Launching in mid May 2017 or sooner, Pursuit Channel HD will be received by all HD U-verse customers who enjoy the superior picture quality of high definition.

“Adding Pursuit HD to AT&T U-verse, DIRECTV, Fios by Verizon and Prism by CenturyLink positions Pursuit Channel as a new category leader in providing outdoor content in full 1080i, and greatly establishes Pursuit as having the category’s largest footprint when you bring DISH Network into the conversion,” said Rusty Faulk, CEO of Pursuit Channel. “Our independent television producers, some of whom have been with us since the inception of the network nine years ago, deserve all the credit for positioning this broadcasting business as the best buy in outdoor television.”

Pursuit small_logoDennis Presley of MOOSE Media said: “This massive increase in high-quality households means Pursuit has accumulated more HD homes in recent memory than all of its top competitors combined. And the category’s most accurate and dependable viewership audit soon promises to paint that picture with the same bright, crispness as the Pursuit Channel HD signal.”
