Eighty million Americans make hunting, shooting and fishing an integral part of their lives, and Sportsman Channel is the only network focused exclusively on fulfilling their information and entertainment needs. You may not be familiar with the lifestyle, but sportsmen make their presence felt in every corner of the country, comprising 15 percent to 30 percent of every television market in the U.S. (Simmons 2008).

Sportsman Channel understands the American sportsman audience better than anyone, engaging its viewers with visually powerful, entertaining and informative programming built around adventure, instructional how-tos, conservation management, new equipment reviews and destination "where-tos."

Sportsman Channel has grown by leaps and bounds, skyrocketing 178 percent (16 million households) over the past 18 months, reaching more than 25 million households and establishing the channel as a rapidly growing, emerging television network. Sportsman Channel is readily available across all major multichannel providers and recently celebrated the debut of Sportsman HD on Dish Network.

Sportsman Channel, combined with the assets of its parent company InterMedia Outdoors, produces hundreds of hours of original television programming, more than 13,000 pages of print editorial coverage in 15 market-leading magazines and thousands of digital online content pages—an immersive sportsman media experience like no other.

Sportsman Channel provides an unique opportunity for its advertising partners to reach a massive yet elusive audience, one that is both fiercely passionate about their lifestyle and firmly committed to the brands that help to deliver it.
